I don't think so yet, it boots and runs, be patient, you still have some files that need work.

HI

I was using photoshop and got black screen, after I open my PC again and open photoshop, I got the attached error.
Is this saying my GPU is going bad?

No, it's saying it had a problem with the graphics driver.

A problem with the graphics driver can be caused by a failing video card or chip. But most often it is caused because of incompatibility, a conflict with another driver or service, or a corruption in the driver files.

Question: did the graphics on this system ever work properly? If yes, can you think of the time this problem started? Can you think of any change you made, hardware or software, at the time the problem started?

Yes, I am using this GPU from last 2.5 years and never face this type of difficulty in starting.
Right now I am using latest Nvidia drivers. which is 337.88 and tested by WHQL.

I know I was facing the same thing 7-8 months before and I tried cleaning my PC and reinstalling new drivers solved the issue at that time.

But now I have tested all the things, this problem is not going.
I am still getting the black screen when using prime95 but not by using FurMark.

And the thing is I got this first time while using ps. I have seen this error message first time and I am using ps from last 5 years.

Many time the newest driver is not the best. Try rolling back to an older version and try.

Then use NVIDIA DRIVERS 314.22WHQL only, at least on a test basis. Because it is the only driver version lately released by nvidia which does not fail at itself.

Follow NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems while installing it.

BTW, have you experienced any BSODs (not blackouts or abnormal shutdowns) lately?
