Computer Troubles.... (likely Graphics related)

Post by -Kro » Sun Oct 22, 2017 7:31 pm

Once again I've stumbled into PC troubles!

Been running the "new" system for a good month or so, no issues! installed the SSD and GTX950 generously gifted from Spawnsy. However as usual the PC gods are not happy with me.

I've only been playing PUBG so will have to test on another game. Seemingly at random my monitor will go into standby claiming "no signal from PC" forcing me to do a restart....Strangely the game sound only lingers for a number of seconds before vanishing. yet I can still hear music on spotify and talk to people on discord. I have checked the cables...(they are bolted in anyway) and I did a clean uninstall and gfx driver update but the issue persists..... Been working fine for a month or so but yesterday and today.... no such luck.

Are using Display Port, DVI, HDMI or VGA?

Does your monitor and/or GPU support Display Port?

I have had this also in the past, I solved it by removing the card and reseating, and then removing the drivers in safe mode using the d3d removal tool then reinstalling,

give it a go

I dont quite understand what you mean over'. It's plugged into the GFX card if that's what you mean?

I had trouble where it defaults to the DP (I use HDMI). It might be worth trying if you can.

When does the signal intermittency occur? During gaming, during startup, or randomly?

To add to the list of ideas above, wherever there are intermittent graphics issues, I would check the cable / contacts (on both the cable and the card's port). A little bit of dust or grease in the wrong place can ruin anyone's day. If you suspect an issue, blow out the port or socket with contact cleaner and compressed air (but unplug the machine for five minutes first!).

But from what you've said, it might also be an issue with the power supply to the graphics card, either a loose connection to your PSU or what's known as a 'brownout' which occurs when your PSU isn't powerful enough to cope with your system during peak loads (as in gaming).

It's only occurring whilst playing pubg. I will investigate what you've said

Have you connected extra power lead to the card via the 6 pin socket?
