Graphic Card Randomly Shuts off and Stops Being Detected, Then No Input, Then Beeps from MOBO. GTX 780 Classified

Hello, I just bought a 780 Classified, and initially i was having trouble installing it in my case, as I was getting no input, and got bios sounds as One Long Beep with Three Short beeps. Then the beeping changed when I fixed the Ram to One long beep and two short beeps repeatedly. I reseated the card three times, then it went away. I finally was enjoying some BF4, and getting 100 fps, and after playing for like3 hours, was just surfing the net, the input was suddenly lost and my mobo started beeping again, the long beep with the two short beeps. What could this be? Is it my psU? should I replace it? or something else?

  1. What PSU do you have? What are your temps like?
  2. The temps are fine, 50 max for cpu (oc'd fx 8350), and PSU was a 700 watt APEVIA i bought a while back.
    the gfx card probably like max 70
  3. Looks like a faulty or underpowered PSU.

    could this be a reason? I mean I was playing for 3 hours w/ 0 problems...
  5. is your PSU 80+ certified?

    no, its a crappy generic one I put in 2 years ago when I was a noob builder. Im going to be getting a corsair 750m soon. but no its not certified.
  7. Then it could be a PSU problem.
    You need at least a 700 watt quality PSU.
    You can choose any of the PSUs given below which fit in your budget :
    1) Corsair HX 750 (non modular) (80+ silver)
    2) Seasonic X-series 750 watt PSU (80+gold) (modular)
    3) XFX 750 watt. (80+bronze) (non modular)
    My personal choice - Seasonic

    (try fixing the RAM or use another one if you have to test if there's a RAM problem or not. If RAM's OK its certainly your PSU,change it)

    it can be that the GPU becomes unseated right? bc of the weight? otherwise yeah I'm looking into the PSU.
  9. Yeah, that might be another issue. Maybe PCI-E pins are loose or GPU might not be properly seated. If you're changing the PSU anyway,then its fine. Try seating GPU by putting pressure on one end of the slot, then on the other end. Fiddle the GPU and see if it works.

    so are you saying that the PCIE slot may be damaged. Would it matter much if I put the GPU into another PCIE slot, would it affect performance?
  11. You could try doing that, but I doubt the slot is damaged. A new PSU could be the solution though.

    the weird thing was that it was working in the 3rd slot, with no problems. i switched it to the 1st slot, as ppl said it gives better performance, and then it started doing it...

    Yeah, that sounds like a power supply issue. Wasn't getting enough power in the third to run well, but enough that it wouldn't overload the PSU and still run.

    that makes sense. Does the third pcie slot run slower and w/ less energy than 1st?
  15. I believe so, yes.

    ok i think I'm going to get the corsair cx 750. hopefully it'll solve it. DO you think it'll make my fps go up? and a nagging question I'm having is why was I able to run the GPU for like 3 hours w/ no probe?
  17. That is a powerful card, there is a good chance it didn't even hit full load, and wasn't drawing enough power to shut it off. I don't think your FPS will go up, what is your CPU?

    I don't think PSU if of any issue now. If you said that your GPU was running fine on 3rd slot(v2.0), then problem is solved.
    Don't worry for performance as it would be equivalent for both slots, but 3rd slot may have slightly lower memory bandwith which should not be a problem if you're not using a triple monitor setup or going higher than 1080p.
  19. Sometimes the third slot does not allow as much power to the card, slowing it down.

    Hi.
    I just bought an Antec HCG 900 a 900 watt psu. I'm installing later so I'll let you guys know what happens

    thanks so much. I switched the PSU to the Antec HCG 900, and its running perfect now. :D
  22. Great!
