Windows 7: Using OCCT to verify if GPU Is bad, not sure about results

Using OCCT to verify if GPU Is bad, not sure about results

I downloaded the GPU test tool as noted on this thread,and while running it, I noticed that eventually it brings up a FULL sized windows, where it does more testing (fps I think),and that's great, but now long does this take ? ( Im asking because it doesn't say anything as it runs, about its running time, though after 10 or so minutes here are zero errors ).

AS an extra note, I wanted to add that I frequently get errors with IE 10 here in windows 864bit (meant to offer that originally anyway) , where it forces restart of itself and while it recovers, its always a mess having to go back to website that are now not found. IE is the only browser doing this , ironically enough, and yes I ran /scannow and it came back fine.

Also to note,I almost never have these display error issues IN gaming,its always outside of gaming which I find very odd indeed.

If its just IE doing it, and all is OK everywhere else including gaming ..... I would guess its safe top say your GPU is OK.

A bad GPU would show symptoms everywhere, most notably under stress and gaming in specific.

You may try setting IE10 back to all defaults, disabling all plugins and see if that helps. There may be something installed thats causing it issues.
Click the little gearbox in the top right of IE, go to Internet Options then the the the Advanced TAB.

Click the reset button.

This should reset everything back to default and disable Add-Ons. If its a setting or add On causing your issue, it should all be OK now. You'll then just need to try and isolate which one.
