Is My GPU Dying

Ahmed Al Obaidy
 Share

hi everyone 

I hope that I find new ideas here cause I almost giving up 

My PC 

9900 K 

Asus 2080 Ti 

ROG Maximus XI Code 

32 GB Hyperx running at XMP 3200 CL 16

CPU and GPU running on custom loop (360 Rad) 

 

this issue started almost 6 months ago when I was playing the division 2 but it only happened once on twice, but lately i'm unable to play any game specially red dead redemption 2 

after a few minutes my monitor losses signal completely and the only way to get it back is by hard reset my PC. after restarting I get a notification that Geforce driver couldn't be started and windows default driver were loaded although i'm running the latest driver. 

 

below are some of the troubleshooting that I did already but with no luck 

1. Clean Windows Install (and I even removed all the partitions and started from scratch) 

2. changing monitors (from 1440 to 1080 cause I have both also connected the PC to my TV) 

3. switching from HDMI to DP

4. removed GPU tweak II ( I had it configured for maximum power and Temp target only)

5. defaulting Nvidia 3D settings ( power management was set to prefer maximum performance and texture filtering quality set to high performance)

 

things I'm planning to do for more troubleshooting

1. replacing both HDMI and DP cables for a new ones 

2. reducing RAM to 16 instead of 32 cause I added 2 more matching sticks recently although I don't it's related to the issue 

3. installing GPU directly (iam using cooler master vertical holder although I checked the GPU is running at 16x using GPUZ

 

and last sorry for the long post hope to hear from ya soon 

 

Regards

I would definitely start with plugging the GPU in directly to the mobo. That is the most likely issue of all those you have listed.

just to update you

my issue was solved 

it was as you guys suggested the vertical mount 

once I plugged the GPU directly problem was solved and I was able to game normally without any issues 

 

thanks for all who replied to my topic
