Is there a way to set up tests/analysis of your graphics card for faults?
My issue, is that when playing games (intensive pc usage), the screen and sound freezes. The only way to over come this is via hard reset. I have used
speccy to monitor temperatures, and nothing seems to overheat. (monitoring in real time vs logs is difficult due to having to reset.)
- I have checked the system log for errors etc, but nothing occurs in the logs.
- Ran memory checks on RAM
- Ran chkdsk on harddrives
The game also becomes laggy, not long before crashing. which is Extremely unusual. It may not be the newest graphics card (GTX 460) but I've never had issues playing Dota 2 in full graphics. When i restart, and run the game, it occurs in a quicker time period. Which is why i thought it might be heat related.. But speccy says otherwise. (70c max)
If I have to go and buy a new graphics card, I would prefer to be certain its the issue first.
