We need more information in order to be of help.


What is the make and model of this computer?  If this is a custom build post the make and model of the motherboard.


We need to know exactly what GPU you are using.


If possible, please do the following.


Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  Clicking on this link will automatically initiate the download.

When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.


Click on File which is outlined in red in the screen above, and then click on Publish Snapshot.


The following screen will appear, click on Yes.


The following screen will appear, click on Copy to Clipboard.

In your next post right click inside the Reply to Topic box, then click on Paste.  This will load a link to the Speccy log.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
