Just now, my Nvidia driver just crashed, and noticed that my GPU temperature gradually started going higher and higher and also started squealing a little bit. I'm not sure if it's the actual card itself, maybe the fault lies in the driver, since I remember having this problem with my old Nvidia Geforce 8800 gt (except it never squealed). Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

How long have you had the card?

 

I'd update the drive and see if the issue continues.

 

You might want to also check and see if the fans on the card are free of dust.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that this is a fairly new build. I've had it for a couple of weeks along with all the other parts except for the power supply, which is about a year old. All nvidia drivers are up to date. Fans are also free of dust, the squealing occured only after the nvidia drivers crashed and continued on while they were still down.

Yes, it's 60hz. In the nvidia control panel, I have v-sync set up to "Use the 3D application setting". Also, when I play games such as Far cry 3, I tend to put v-sync on as it tends to help with screen tearing. The monitor is a SyncMaster 2032GW, fairly old monitor. I think it's starting to show its age, sometimes I could be just scrolling down a web page, and I'd notice a bit of screen tearing. I had the same problem with my old build, in which I used the same monitor. I could be playing really graphically simplistic games such as Binding of Isaac and notice screen tearing, on both old and the new build. Could the issue be monitor related? Thanks!

monitors do get worn on occasion, they can suffer from heat-related wear.

 

is there a newer monitor avalable you could try out as a test?

Unfortunately no...But I do have a old laptop in which I can maybe use the screen as a monitor, will check it out soon enough.

 

Thank you so much for your input! Will let you know if anything comes up.
