Ok, so i have had a handy old radeon r9 280 Duel-x for almost 3 years now and all of a sudden it starts to freeze and display beige and white lines.

I am a big time gamer, i spend most of my time playing games like csgo, arma 3, h1z1 and rust.


So, i started my computer and started to play rust for a while but i am interrupted my my computer freezing and displaying beige and white lines.

this was the first time i had ever seen this happen and i hopped straight onto chrome and researched about it,

the only things i could find where things about vertical lines WHILE playing games since i'm not good at specifying problems.


I think my graphics card is dead but i don't want to jump to the conclusion that it is

since i'm young and don't have a ton of money to spend fixing my computer.


If anyone could help me it would mean a lot and i will provide a picture and my PC specs below.




CPU: AMD FX-8150 
GPU: Radeon R9 280 Duel-X 
SSD: Sandisk S128G 126GB 
HDD: WD Blue 1TB (2012) 
MBD: Asus M5A99X EVO

There is a ton of things that can cause this... Drivers,, Motherboard power problems, PSU problems, video card dying or overheating, shorts in the system, to much of a power draw on one line, hard drive failure. The list can go on and on.
