something isnt right. possible GPU issue?
Hey all new to these forums but im in need of some information, when it comes to pc's my knowledge only goes so far I wouldn't say I was capable to say build a pc, but I do enjoy playing games etc on my pc and that fact that's its been playing up for a week is starting to get me down, started off with my screen losing the image, no power was lost on the monitor and the PC was still running, I was unable to do anything other than reset the system, this seemed to happen quiet often for periods then I would get a whole evening of no issues.
later last week I started getting the "Driver display has stopped responding and then recovered" where the screen would blink off and then back on, this was when I started doing some research into fixing a problem watching videos on youtube and installing Ccleaner which was supposed to help, along with this ive made sure my Graphics card driver is up to date ( NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570) which it is.
after installing and using the Ccleaner I thought id cracked it as I had no issues all over the weekend but then yesterday morning it happened again.
Im not sure if I have a software issues or maybe my GPU is on the way out?? im willing to try any suggestions or answer any questions that's my help with the issue.
thanks in advance matt.
PS if it comes to it upgrading my GPU wouldn't be the end of the world because when I brought this pc off computerplanet 3 years ago the plan was to always upgrade it any way
