Possible gpu problem, graphics glitches

  Lee Kidd 13:39 13 Nov 2019

Recently I’ve started getting glitches on some games on steam and it’s making them crash, it’s the same thing on each game and I’m wondering if it’s a problem with my gpu or another issue it’s a similar looking glitch to this

Just a possibility: If this is only a recent occurrence, there may have been a build up of dust on the fins of your GPU's heat-exchanger

I’ve given it a clean and reinstalled the drivers

But, assuming your GPU's Heat Exchanger has a cover. Have you taken that cover off, to clean underneath it?

I’ll try this when I get home, it only seems to affect 3 games though and only on steam, could it be a problem with steam?

I would agree that this may not be that answer, but it has been several times and it is cost free. Just a little time and TLC

Thanks for the help, I’ll give it a go
