Hi guys, I've had my gaming rig for a little over a year and am having many issues with my graphics card or what i believe to be is causing the issue.
I don't want to write an essay although I could quite easily so I'm just going to list the problems I have encountered below.
Computer doesn't read my GTX 550TI card and says (Intel HD graphics family) in dxdaig, used to say GTX 550TI.
Can't access NVIDIA control panel. It says 'You are not currently using a display attached to an NVIDIA GPU'
Every now and then my screen will completely freeze or will have millions of multicoloured lines and the sound goes strange which makes me think its not the graphics card? This can happen even if I'm just browsing.
'Error: Display driver stopped responding and has recovered'
Error: DirectXfunction "GetDeviceRemovedReason" failed with DXGIERRORDEVICE_HUNG:
Device hung due to badly formed commands.. GPU: "NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti" , Driver 31422
It sucks because I can't play any games, BF3 won't start or will crash, SWTOR starts but is soo laggy its unplayable. I can play BF2 but that isn't graphically intensive.
I have been told by friends that its eithier my graphics card or power supply, time to ask the experts!
Thanks to anyone who replies! I will really appreciate any help!
