Question

Posted

Hello there.

 

I'm having this weird video issue and I cannot figure out what exactly is causing the issue. Basically what happens is the computer will lockup and there will be these weird pixellation issues on the screen. The only way to get out of it is to forcefully reboot.

 

Troubleshooting steps: Clean Formats, Latest Drivers for Video, Memory Tests, Hard Drive tests (chkdsk)

 

It almost seems like a heat issue, which it may be, but I put a little desktop fan right on the side intake (side panel has fan) and the issue persists.

 

I'm kind of at a loss. The hardware will be 6yrs old minus the Video card in February. Any ideas on what the issue could be? I'm also attaching a picture of what the display looks like after it happens.

 

Here is my setup.

 

WIndows 8 OS, Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L, Nvidia 560 GTX TI, Power Supply is a PC Power & Cooling 600Watt.

 

Let me know if you need any more info.

The GTX560Ti is fully supported by the latest drivers. If you're forced to run an old one then something's wrong with the card. Have you attempted to take the card out, dust it and reseat it? Try it in a different PCI-E slot as well.

 

I did do that a few months ago. I did it to find the serial number printed on the back. I may go back in there and re-seat it. My motherboard only has 1 PCI Express 16x slot so I can't try another one.

 

I double checked the model of the card it's not a TI just a straight GTX 560 1GB. Here is a link to it: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133397

 

EDIT: Linked to Wrong Card

The GTX560 is also supported (all GTX500 series and several older series than that are). 

 

That said if the older driver works well, you could stick with that; there likely aren't many important updates for your graphics card in the newer drivers, which mainly target newer cards and SLI setups.

Well, that was short lived. I just turned on my computer after getting home from work and the video went all psycho again. This time though I could actually read the message on the screen and I got a Windows 8 message that said the nvlddmkm.sys caused a problem and it did a memory dump.

 

I guess the card is kaput, gonna send it off I guess, unless anyone else disagrees.

Thanks for info Zlip. I'll try that beta driver and see what happens.

Just an update. The link that Zlip792 gave that goes to that special driver Nvidia made seems to be working well. I installed it shortly after Zlip posted and have not had the pixellation issue. For good measure I upgrade to Windows 8.1 this afternoon and have not had issues.

 

I'm going to give it a few more days, but will mark this question answered with that suggestion as long as nothing goes wrong. If you are having a similar issue, give that driver a shot and see.

I went ahead and marked this as solved, I have not had issues since installing that driver. Thank you all for the assistance and thanks Zlip for finding the solution  :)
