I recently purchased a new graphics card (Nvidia 1060 non-gaming) to replace my old one (nvidia 620), which was experiencing random graphics failures, and wanted to upgrade. (I figured out the problem, it was it was overheating, the fan was going way too slow). But now with my new graphics card, I have been just been experiencing random 3-5 second black screens constantly in about a 10 second interval. I can still do things like type, but just it is black but the background actions are still going on. I have reseated multiple times, and when I put back in the previous graphics card the computer works fine, just with the problems of black screen due to the graphics card overheating. In addition, the screen seems to have a slight hint of yellow through the screen. Any way to fix my problem?
I have: 16 gigs of RAM
1/2 terrabyte of space left
More than enough power
Everything else seems to be fine.
Possible causes: Using a DVI-D to VGA converter into my monitor.
The card itself.
I would love a reply, and any insight would be very much appreciated.
