Used mining GPU making games crash?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently upgraded systems, but kept my current graphics card. I wanted to put another card into my old system so I could give it to someone else. I found a 980 ti on craigslist that was used for mining. The card works well most of the time but freezes up or crashes to a solid color after a few seconds in a couple games I tried. I updated drivers, temps are solid, and fans are working fine. Is this a known issue for mining cards?

For those interested, the games that crashed were Sekiro, and Doom 2016, which worked fine after putting my other card back in.

Sorry to say but lesson learned, mining cards are run 24/7 and an old card like a 980ti was probably run for years non stop. It's a hurting unit.

Is the crashing an indicator of a hurting unit? Just making sure that is indeed the problem here

I would try to reset the bios of the card. it might be a mining bios.
