After about a year of use of my pc I started getting a video tdr error which I figured was a software issue so I re-installed windows and that fixed it for about 2 months. After about 2 month the problem returned and instead of restarting like it normally does it would begin to turn off and on when I hit the power button. The only way to get it to start up was to take out the lithium battery on the motherboard and then put it back in. At this point not even removing that battery works anymore and I cannot start up the pc.


I have re-installed windows again however this time my date got set to 2004 for some odd reason which I believe has something to do with the battery or cmos. I checked the voltages on my psu and everything seems normal and my bios reads normal reading for my psu.

Can't run memtest as the computer won't even start up.


As for the TDR I have tried changing Nvidia drivers and to previous ones but to no avail. My gpu temp hovers aroung 52-54c When playing games with max graphics. Any help would be much appreciated. If there is anything I may have missed  let me know and I will try it out. I was thinking on maybe replacing the lithium battery on my motherboard.
