You will have to either wait for next driver release and hope this will resolve the issue if not you will need to purchase new graphic card. Go to the full post »

I recently inherited this computer from my dad it has a few issues. When it works it works well so I'd like to get it working with your help. I'm not very technical so please be as clear as possible thank you.

 

The problem.

Now and again the computer loses signal between the GPU and monitor.

Some days the computer works for a whole day without any issue's and other days it happens every 5 min's.

 

Specs.

Nividia geforce gt 610

Windows 10 64 bit

Technika monitor

4gb ram

Intel core 2 quad 2.40ghz

 

What I have tried.

I have tried a clean install of the GPU driver.

Different drivers.

Changed to a HDMI lead and the problem persisted.

Hi Eli,

 

If you can connect computer to different monitor or to your television set to find out monitor is not malfunctioning.

Where have you downloaded graphic card driver from?

Use SpeedFan to monitor computer temperatures.

It is the only monitor I have but I will see if I can borrow one from someone. This may take me a day or 2 to get hold of one is that OK?

 

I got the driver's from Nividia's driver site. I tried 2 of the latest drivers including the Beta which was worse than the previous version which I am currently using.

 

The GPU idle is at 39 when I game it's at 40 to 58

I've tried all the solutions listed in the link and none have worked I gave it a few days for each one to see if it had any effect and the problem remains the same random GPU to Monitor cut offs.

 

All updates have also been applied I always do these every day on boot up anyway.

 

Checked for dust it's very clean not a drop to be seen.

 

Sorry for the delayed reply but I wanted to test each solution one at a time to see the result not just apply them all in one go encase something went wrong.

 

Thanks FreeBooter

See if there is a firmware upgrade for your graphic card.

I have just switched to the first in the list high performance and the setting off I will see how that does today and check back.

 

I have tried different GPU drivers from the site and am on the one that has the least effect from this issue.

 

I will try each one and see if any work I do hope so.

Is firm ware different to a driver?

 

yesterday I did the first thing on the list from the link and had bad problems it made things 100 times worse the pc only works for 10 mins till the problem arises now I tried a rollback and to turn every thing back the way it was but it just wont work. The rollback says a file is stopping the rollback from working but it does not say what it is.

Video adapters include a BIOS that is separate from the main system BIOS. Video BIOS upgrades are sometimes referred to as firmware upgrades.

Have you use System Restore tool to rollback changes you have made.

System restore didn't work I tried  quite a few times on a number of different points every time it would say a file is stopping me from rolling back and it didn't work.

 

So the GPU has a bios like the bios on the main board? 

 

I did have a look for the nividia bios but was only able to find a driver on the main site no bios. Is it called something other than bios?

 

I seemed to have made the system a little more stable by uninstalling the nividia driver and just using windows 10 default it still goes dark but not so many times in a few min's.

Yes graphic cards have BIOS its called video BIOS or VBIOS.

If you computer is not custom made install the graphic card driver from your computer manufacturer website.

A quick double check and extra question as this is way beyond anything I have ever done on a PC it worries me a bit.

Here is the card I have

https://www.scan.co....ile-hdmi-dvi-i-

 

Is this the right bios please and how do I tell what bios is already installed?

https://www.techpowe...610-1024-130107

 

 

update I found the version from this article https://www.computer...es/ch001309.htm

 

It is version 75.19.55.0.1e so to upgrade to 

VBIOS Version: 75.19.55.00.02

 

is OK? Sorry I'm very nervous doing this.

Use Speccy to compare specs of the VBIOS upgrade.
