old GTX770 faulty?

Comp Web
 Share

I have an old GTX 770 nvidea graphics card, and recently at completely random times, my monitors will switch off as if the graphics card has shut down. Iat first i updated the drivers then i made sure windows was updated, i have even installed a different OS and it happened. 

 

After reading online, i read it could be either the power supply or the graphics card. 

 

What's your view on this or is there a way I can test to see what's happening. I'm now currently using Ubuntu and I have an i7 -3960X CPU @ 3.30GHz x 12 with 32gb ram.

So the card is shutting off or the screens are just going blank and coming back on? Or  the system needs to be rebooted?

Hows the card idling, temp and usage wise?

the actual screens turn off as if there is no signal. But the computer is still on. when I checked hardware monitor the max temp was 49.c and the idol was around 38 to 41.c I can still hear youtube running in the background so it's not going to sleep. I have to restart my pc to get them to come back on.

 

Its happens around 3 to 4 times a day and it's on for 10 or more hours.

Have you tried cycling the monitor input or turning it off and on again?

Which card specifically? How long have you owned it?

So you bought it used? Which card is it?

 

Ive ran 3 monitors with one of my cards, I know that gives them issues with not being able to down clock and running pretty hot. The core itself isn't doing much the memory does. Could use some new time from the sounds of it.

 

Do you have a program installed to control the card?

Do you have a pic of the card?

 

Download precisionx from evga. Or afterburner if youre into that kinda thing. Then get the usage details from there. May be able to turn the fan(s) up and see if that could help. Atleast test it to see, not a permanent thing.

did it says display driver stop working? if so its (probably) a ram issue and probably cant be fixed. i used to have a inno3d gtx770 behaves just like yours, got rid of it before it puffs.

why everybody post the spec of their rig here? i dont! cuz its made of mashed potatoes!

Hi Folks, so i thought i best update this post, my computer finally died the next day. it wouldn't post at all. so i took the graphics card out to boot just to check it would go to boot to confirm it was the graphics card. It still wouldnt work, so i started to strip the power supply out when i noticed that the person who had fitted the power supply had left a dust filter underneath it. this meant dust was trapped between the power supply and the case. I cleaned it out and we are back working as normal..
