RTX 2070 Crashing/Resetting

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello all, I was hoping I could get some help with an issue that has plagued my PC for a while. I installed a Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme RTX 2070 and while the gaming performance is stellar, my rig tends to lock up for a few seconds every 30 mins or so. It doesn't matter what I'm doing; gaming, web browsing, working, whatever, it keeps happening. More specifically, the screen freezes and the lights on the graphics card and ram sticks turn off. A few seconds later, they come back on and everything returns to normal. Here's what I've done do far: uninstalled the display drivers using DDU and reinstalled, installed an older driver, and removed all overclocks. I'm at a loss and any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

 

Hardware:

Ryzen 5 1600

Asus ROG Strix B350-F Gaming mobo

16gb of G.Skill Trident Z RGB RAM

Gigabyte AORUS XTREME RTX 2070 8gb (I know, a gold spec card in an otherwise bronze spec PC. It started out as a budget build)

EVGA 500w PSU (bronze rated)

128gb SSD (boot)

2tb HDD

Recommended PSU is 550w for that GPU. If the Ram RGB is turning off along with the GPU RGB it may not be delivering enough power, or faulty mobo.

Also try reseating GPU and RAM.

I tried reseating the components to no avail. I kinda figured the PSU could be the problem and I guess now is the time to try and upgrade it. Will update when done.

Upgraded the PSU to a Corsair RM750x and reseated both the graphics card and the RAM with no change. The problem persists. Could the issue have something to do with ASUS Aura Sync and Gigabyte RGBfusion interfering with each other?

Na aura sync and rgb fusions shouldn't cause problems try uninstalling them anyway, did you have a different motherboard, ram or GPU before this problem occurred?

I had an RX570 before the 2070. I used DDU to wipe the AMD drivers before I installed the Nvidia ones

Use DDU again in safe mode wipe nVidia and AMD drivers and uninstall geforce experience and then power off your computer in the start menu, restart and reinstall the 2070 driver from the manufacturers website but dont install geforce experience cause that updates the drivers and makes it buggy af sometimes.

500 watts is plenty, especially since that setup at max load will only consume 400 at most. The quality of the psu is a different story, it depends on which evga bronze psu he has.

Followed your instructions word for word. While that did make startup a little smoother, the main issue still persists. I'm stumped. Could be a bad motherboard?

Even if the PSU wasn't the problem, it was probably a good idea to change it. It was the cheapest, lowest rated 500w unit EVGA makes. An open box budget build special.
