Is my GPU dead?

Sooo, I have news.

 

SHORT VERSION: Windows might have deleted some files ???

 

I got another gpu from a friend and after replacing it the red lines disappeared, BUT the Windows was still looping around diagnostic. After searching on the internet it turned out that some of my system files were corrupted. I have NO idea how that happen, I was just browsing when my screen turned black. So what I did was I re-installed windows without formatting my SSD so now i still have access to my data. After re-installing I returned my old gpu and after windows installed the drivers my old gpu started working fine again. This problem was really strange, never happen to me before and never heard of something like this. I still dont know what was the cause?!? Did a stress test and everything seems to be ok. Thank you everyone for taking the time and trying to help!

Hello,

While i was reading something on the internet my screen became black so i restarted my pc and now it is looping to the diagnosis and restarting. There are 2 big vertical red lines on my screen as you can see on the picture. Is there something i can do about it? Never had this issue before and i cant find anyone with the same error.

if you can get some sort of shitty gpu just with any output try it then maybe look at driver issues? your card may have automatically updated. you could also try wiping your drives and getting a fresh install of windows.

Ill ask a friend for a gpu to try, but I dont think that it is a driver issue. The diagnostic tool doesnt know whats the problem and also i tried to run safe mode and recovery. Safe mode disnt start up and recovery did nothing.

What were you using originally? Also, is the GPU still under warranty?

The gpu is really old amd r9 270x sapphire that i bought when it came out, this means 2013~2014 something like that. I use analog vga to dvi conector because my monitor is actually a tv and isnt meant to use hdmi for computer
