VGA Card Issue
« on: May 07, 2017, 07:25:00 am »
I'm having this issue since last night. I was playing a game (Paladins) and suddenly my display has gone yellow and white strips (Vertical). i had nothing else to do but to force restart the PC, Ones is restates Win 10 Logo shows, then ones it blink to show the welcome screen, (the usual black screen that comes before the welcome screen) the welcome screen never comes. the monitor stays black.

so i have removed the PC in to parts and gave it a clean. still the same.

Then I format the PC and freshly installed the Win 10. and yes when it installing the Win 10 everything was fine. then I started installing the drivers and hear the problem again.. while i install the VGA driver when the display blinks (As usual) it never comes back. even if I force restart the  PC same issue, only the win logo shows and then screen goes black.

My PC is i3 4th Gen
gigabyte  gigabyte b85m d3h
8GB Gskill
r9 270
hydance 500w PSU

and yes i hv tried to install older versions of display drivers as well.

any ideas what i should try next?

could be a hardware problem too.. try removing the card and checking for any blown capacitors. Saw it online while searching for something else :D

Even my R7 370 died two days back. The bad days for Radeon cards? :D anyway remove the heatsink and see if any visible damage.

tried installing a older driver ?

dose your mobo has a vga out? if so set the bios setting to use it (if such setting is there) and boot the system without putting in the VGA card to the VGA slot. once in your system install the necessary drivers for the VGA (it should be in the mobo CD) and then first play a HD movie if everything is ok then play a old game like CS. slowly move towards a game that needs DX11. in all tests cases if the display is getting properly displayed then the conclusion is your VGA card is having h/w problems.
