Hi all.. So let's get to the point. I was on my computer this evening just like every other evening.. Ive got Windows 7 on one HD and 10 on another HD. I usually use Windows 7.
So, I click on a game, it loaded to the main screen, and then as soon as the game started loading up, both screens went black and a had a very rapid sound loop for about 30 or so seconds..
When the computer tried to boot back up, it blue screened and I'm pretty sure it mentioned graphics driver issue.
So I tried again and same thing.. So I tried my Windows 10 install and while the initial load screen loaded up, after that, both of my screens were black.
So I yanked out the graphics card, a gtx 570 and replace it with a nVidia 7800. The 7800 works like a charm.
So then I unplugged the power supply for the 7800 and used the other one (since the 570 takes 2 plugs I wanted to be sure it wasn't a power issue). The 7800 still worked like a charm on both 7 and 10.
So I pulled out the 7800 and reinstalled the 570, and again, blue screens and/or only the VGA adapter is recognized.
So, unless I've missed something, I think my 570 is dead.. Is there anything I missed? And if someone tells me to update the drivers I might scream.. Lol.
Oh, also, when the 570 is in, and while the 2 initial very quick load screens go by, there are 2 lines of text at the top of the screen. With the 570 installed, there are all of a sudden small lines within the text.. I have no idea if this means something, but I thought I'd add it if it does.
