Display shuts down and crashes while gaming MSI GTX 750 ti OC

Hello guys

I have bought a MSI GTX 750 ti OC edition graphics card used one


My Specs (Old build and is due for an upgrade)

Intel Pentium g620
4GB Corsair vengeance
Gigabyte H61 DS2 motherboard
Corsair CX 600 PSU
Seagate HDD
MSI GTX 750ti OC edition (Previously Sapphire HD 6770 1gb ddr5)
Windows 10 64bit


My system was rock steady and stable when i was using HD 6770 and had no problems with it(so i dont think its a psu problem) However after swapping it with gtx 750 ti im having this issue of display completely shutting down while gaming with no signal showing on the monitor and i need to full power off the system to make the display comeback again

This has been happening with witcher 3 and skyrim (I have tested with only two games)
skyrim on ultra settings it will crash in just 5 minutes into the game
I tried looking into the case to see if the graphic card just stops functioning
but the fan still seems to function even after crash so the graphic card doesn't completely die

I have the latest Nvidia drivers installed and the graphic card is at stock settings(factory overclocked)
I have also tried stress testing with MSI Kombustor and FutureMark for like 20 mins and there was no problem
I have also reset windows 10 and updated my BIOS
but nothing worked


What are my options
1) seller has agreed to test it in his system and take it back if the crash happens in his pc as well
2) if it doesn't i may have to find the fault in my system

Please help me out guys

  1. make sure the psu pins are properly connected to the gpu... if not then its probably your unit thats making a problem, better ask for a change

    Gtx 750 ti doesnt have any pins it works with the power from pci express slot

    My old HD 6770 had a 6 pin connector but it never crashed
    so im assuming psu isnt the problem
  3. I suspect that the card has a problem!

    If you put the 6770 back in and it runs fine... then put the 750 back in and the problem comes back.. that tells me only one thing.

    Of course, there could be a problem with power delivery from your pcie slot, but it is more likely to be just a problem with that particular card.

    Can you test the 750 in another system to see if the fault repeats itself?

    i was using 6770 till then on same setup and there never was a problem
    the only thing that has changed is the card and Drivers(AMD to nVidia)

    I have not tried it with other system will try to find one and test it out

    Yeah, i think that's the best bet.. if it repeats on another system.. then my spidey senses would be tingling!

    Another question though... did you clean off the old drivers from the system first before installing the nvidia ones?

    If not, i'd do that too. Just google for AMD driver remover. There is a nvidia one as well.. you should probably remove all (amd + nvidia gpu) drivers from the system and then just install the latest ones from nvidia.

    If it still repeats itself.. then a test in another system will tell you for sure.
