Need Advice on Computer Problem with GFX Card

#1Necrohaul670Posted 9/2/2013 6:58:36 PM
Hello. I have a GTX 670 EVGA and I was wondering if this is a sign of whether or not my card is dying: Screen turns black and it says "A problem with your video hardware caused Windows to stop working correctly." on the taskbar. Then it says the drivers have recovered. The games work fine but the screen goes black and then theres a steep fps drop that stays until I exit the game. This happens a lot and rather frequently. I used a air canister to remove any dust but I'm confused. If anyone could shed some light or help me out I'd really appreciate it. Specs are in sig. I also have a Action Center Description that I can copy and paste if anyone is familiar ( it says BCCode 117 is indicative of a failed driver installation attempt)

A problem with your video hardware caused Windows to stop working correctly.

sounds like a driver issue. do a clean reinstall of your current drivers (or update to the latest drivers if you havent). If you are on the latest drivers and still get the issue, try the next newest driver and see if that still causes issues.
Religion is like circumcision. If you wait until someone is 21 to tell them about it, they probably won't be interested.
