  10. @martin-w That sure is great advice but by now I'm pretty sure it's graphics card causing the issue. There's no way I'm buying a new one though. At least right now. @Jethro Thank you for your input. Unfortunately I don't have another monitor I can test the card with. Since my PSU is modular I did try different (never used) PCI-E cables connected to a different port on the PSU. I'll try a different PCIeX16 on the motherboard next (Asus P8Z68 V-PRO). @MDFlier Thank you for your help. I also think this is just an heat issue caused by a faulty fan. I may just do what you suggest regarding a new fan. I don't think that it will be that hard to do.
  11. Thank you for your input, gents. I appreciate it. @dmarques69 Yes, I tried different driver version and even removed Geforce Experience from my system because I had some problems with it in the past. I also tried different ports and a brand new HDMI cable. I'll try MSI afterburner and check if it happens at a certain temperature or not. Obrigado! Um abraço e boas entradas! :-) @martin-w Thank you for your suggestion but it didn't help in this case. I always discharge the capacitors before opening my PC case and even do it on a regular basis. Unfortunately it didn't help. I sent EVGA customer support an email and just got an answer. They confirm that it is most likely a graphics card issue and that they usualy do an RMA and replace the card but since mine is 4 years old I'm out of luck and on my own! It seems I have to get a new card when I can...
  12. Hi, I really could use some help figuring out what's wrong with my PC. Lately, mostly but not only when gaming, my monitor goes black and after a few seconds I get a "No signal" message. My PC keeps working and it seems the only problem is the loss of image. I can still hear the sound from the game I'm playing but sometimes there's some "screeching" with the other sounds in the background. Pushing reset (I also learned that doing ctrl+alt+delete+3 times tab+enter shuts down the PC even if I can't see what I'm doing :-D) solves the problem until the next time. I have a four year old EVGA GeForce GTX 770 with the EVGA ACX Cooler. I noticed the cooler on the card has been a bit more "noisy" lately so thinking it was probably dust, I opened the case and when I was removing the card from the case, one of the fans fell from the cooler. I was able to put the fan back and it holds in place but I'm not sure it's doing it's job properly. The idle temperature is around 25ºC. I really could use an upgrade but I can't afford one so I have to do with what I have. Is it the graphics card (probably the cooler) causing this issue? What are my options? Aftermarket coolers must be hard to find for such a "legacy" card, right? Any input greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.
  13. Very nice indeed, Ed. Thank you for sharing!
  14. WOW! A true work of art indeed and your screenshots do it justice.
