Re: WTH video card dead after an hour of low-level overclocking?!?!
*Sorry for the topic ressurection*
ARGH I am so aaannngggraaayyyy!!!
The stupid piece of crap stopped working again after being stable for 2 weeks...
I turn Lineage 2 on, play a little, game guard crashes and I have to exit the game(the game is kind of buggy), so I do the usual, I press ctrl+alt+del and...the screen flippin' turns off. All the processes are working the PC turns on and off(with the usual vista sounds and everything), but I see no picture! As I researched this odd behaviour I noticed that if you unplug the card's power the pc doesnt go to the vista stage(sounds and stuff) but instead it just blows air(so the mobo see's the video card as normal and halts the system loading), but when you plug it back in, it works. Might this be bios(mobo or video card) related?
PS The pc is pretty stable, worked perfectly after the last time the VC came back from the grave...It is in a cold room(brrr, stupid hole in the wall), it has worked 24/7(maybe 20/6) for a week with no sign's of anything. It is not overclocked(after the first joyride I said no), I played MUCH more power-hungry games(GTA4, Mirrors edge, you name it), so it is definitely not due to something temp. related.
PSS HELP MEIII!!!! Please, for the love of boxxy!(or hate, whatever you're in to)
