  1. Is my gpu bad?


    It crashed during a game. Wasn't overclocked but i bought it used less than a month ago from ebay. Luckily it has a warranty. It looks fine in the driverless 800x600 resolution but when i change to 1080p i get artifacts all over the place. No audio anymore either. I used driver sweeper and reinstalled to still have the same visual issues.

    B(lack)SOD after closing GPU demanding applications and games

    I would like to suggest 2 more things if you don't mind,
    1. Seat the GPU in another slot, if possible, and see if that helps anything
    2. Use the GPU in another system, if possible, this is a step to determine that it is really the GPU and not multiple defective slots or something else from the system.

    Hi Michael

    Open Device Manager (accessible by right clicking your Start Button)

    Expand the Display Adapters section

    You should see your GPU listed, along with possibly an integrated graphics option

    If that is no listed there:

    Boot into BIOS (start your system, then on the manufacturers screen, repeatedly press the appropriate key (usually F2) to enter BIOS

    Under System Information, you should find your GPU listed

    If you still cannot find the GPU listing, what is the Make and exact Model No. of your PC - that will be printed on a sticker on the bottom casing . ..

    Is my gpu bad?

    Is there a way to force a program to use a secondary GPU?

    I have 2 GPU's (Nvidia GTX 970 and 1080) and I want to force a program to use the 1080 for certain programs/games. Going to Settings>System>Display>Graphics Settings should give me the option to switch GPU's. Unfortunately it does not list both of my GPU's
    nor does it allow me to change to another one, only the default GPU is chosen (the 970). This is a desktop computer and I have tried the Nvidia control panel and UEFI settings without much luck. If I tried selecting a program to run on my 1080 (through the
    Nvidia control panel), it would still run it on the 970. I have tried switching the GPU's around with not much luck there either. If I can suggest to Microsoft the option in the Graphics Settings to list both GPU's for selection, that would be great. Otherwise
    I don't know what to do. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you for your time.
