Could my Force GT be causing this?

Hey all thanks in advance for the help.

 

First off have had my Force GT 120GB in raid 0 for a few months now with seemingly no problems and amazing speed!

 

That being said, there is a specific problem with my computer that I am pretty sure is due to a faulty graphics card, however I wanted to make sure it is not related to the SSDs (it started happening around the same time I got them), before I go off and spend $500 on a new GPU.

 

During gaming many times either

 

a. the computer will crash to a black screen, blank monitor while the sound still runs, but computer must be manually shut down.

 

b. the computer crashes to a black screen with a sound loop, or the game freezes with sound loop;... both require manual shut down.

 

Is there anyway this could be related to firmware (im using 1.3.2, or the SSDs at all? I have tested the psu, sound card, memory, etc etc... I believe it is the graphics card I would just like to make sure it could not be the Solid States.)

 

Thank you!

The problems seem like it is a driver/ Overclock problem. I've experienced these problems on BFBC2.

 

-Update all your drivers.

-If you have an oced CPU and GPU. Save your settings and revert to default stock settings.

 

Then check if the problem still appears.

 

If the issues still appear try a secure erase and reinstall of Windows.

Best way to rule out the disks as the source of error is to borrow a regular HDD to use for OS drive and see if the problem still occurs. Or borrow another graphics card.

 

It can be hard reaching a conclusion based on what you describe, but honestly I don't think it's an SSD problem. Do they get detected by the BIOS if you use the reset button after a crash?
