A couple of months ago, I had one of my graphics card 'die'/Code 43 on me (you can see the thread about it here: Could my graphics card have died?
), and now my second graphics card has done the same thing - except I haven't had the same 'monitor not displaying' problems that I had with the first one.
I was playing Just Cause 2 at the time (it's not that
power-hungry at all really), and it wasn't that long into the game when the graphics went funny and crashed/froze my computer.
[Force] restarting my computer, I was greeted with these lines (sorry for the slightly blurry image - the RAM was still counting up at the time of this picture btw):
I still had the Code 28 [under "3D Video Controller"] even after I installed the latest graphics driver
[80% sure of it], and I still have it now.
However one thing has changed since the previous problem: I installed a 64-bit Windows 7 [Home Premium still] back in January (2011) - so perhaps that's why I didn't get a BSOD this time.
ps. I have never overclocked my cards, and I don't think I ever want to (too risky for my liking).
