MSI H81M-S03
Intel i7-4790
nvidia quadro fx4600
be quiet! System Power 7 600W
16 gigs o ram
seagate barracuda 1tb


recently, my Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 WindForce died, or at least i think so.


Following that, i installed a quadro fx4600 i had laying around, which worked fine for around 1 1/2 week, until, while writing a document, i was met with several graphics driver crashes followed by red swirly artifacting and lastly a bsod. Ever since then, the computer would bsodd whenever i tried to turn it on normally.


I then removed the card, ran on integrated and uninstalled the drivers. Re-inserting the card(i kept it in an anti-static bag for one day because i was quite busy), it worked on normal windows drivers, but now had these red lines running across the screen, as shown here(https://imgur.com/Q867qJK). These lines do not show up on screenshots, but also don't show up when running on integrated.


i'm not at a loss and frankly kinda worried that it's either my psu or motherboard killing gpus.


I've attached the minidumps of my 6 most recent, the oldest of which was still with the old gpu, if one of you magnificent lads maybe wants to have a look at that too.

I doubt anything is killing your gpus. Sounds like the fx6400 failed as well. To see if the PSU is a problem take a look at the voltages reported. Speedfan and AIDA64 do that I believe. If the voltages are out of line (i.e. 11 volts on the 12 volt rail) then your PSU is failing and needs to be replaced. I doubt that's the issue but its something to look into before you get a new GPU

A Speccy report will help us take a look at you voltages and other hardware features.

http://www.majorgeeks.com/mg/get/speccy,1.html. This will help us see what you have. When you run it, click on File/Publish Snapshot/ then it'll give you an URL to paste here.

Also the sysnative report asked for here is also helpful. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/
