GT 1030 Crashes

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey all,

So in August of 2018, I purchased a GT 1030 as it was the only decent half-height low-profile card that would fit in my dell optiplex 790 (i5 2400, 8gb DDR3, 240gb SSD)

Now I never intended to heavily game on that card, and never had any issues with it (played CS:GO & Minecraft, Vsync on)

 

This card served me quite well up until recently where I bought a brand new system and actually pushed it beyond 50% usage.

(Ryzen 5 2600, 8gb HyperX Fury DDR4 2666Mhz RAM, ASUS PRIME B450M-A, 450w Cooler Master PSU, Used old SSD & GPU)

 

So anytime I put it under more than ~60% load, my display first crashes "no signal" then my whole system reboots.
At first I thought it may be a power issue, but the GT 1030 supposedly only takes 30w when under full-load, and PCIe can provide up to 75w.
Next I thought it was temperature issues, but nope, this happened while my card still sat at around 45c.

Now I can guarantee that this is a GPU issue, as when I put my old GTX 560 Ti in, I could push it to 100% usage.

 

I'm just wondering, did I get a crap card? Am I eligible for warranty? How could I troubleshoot further?

Do you know what temps the video card reaches when this crash happens ?  Try a different PCIe slot on your mobo.  Also try DDU "Display Driver Uninstaller" in safe mode and do a clean and restart back into normal mode and install latest nVidia WHQL drivers and let us know what happens.

Temps do not pass 45c
Only have 1 PCIe 16x slot 


I just tried DDU, had 3 graphics drivers installed (Intel HD Graphics 2000, GT 1030 & GTX 560, unistalled all and did a fresh install of GTX 560 and am yet to have any crashes (2 hours in) Will keep you updated!

16/4/2019 Still happening with both the GT 1030 & GTX 560Ti after uninstalling display drivers... must be a faulty PCIe? sadly I don't have the money to chuck into a new MoBo and my MoBo only has 1 PCIe slot, this only happens under GPU load, as I can render videos in premiere when not using the GPU accelerated rendering
