Thread: Signs of a damaged GPU?

    What are the signs of a damaged GPU? A while ago, I decided to try overclocking my Geforce4 4600 with Powerstrip. I just have OEM cooling on the card, but I have a PCI slot fan right under the card and I've got quite a few case fans, so my mobo usually stays around 20 C or so. I tried ocing to 333mhz and 699mhz for the memory. Normally, it runs at 300/648, so I didn't think I would have any problems. After I did that, I got a message saying it was unable to initialize the video card, so I went back to default settings. However, ever since then, I've seen decreased performance in 3dmark and other games. Would that be a sign that I somehow damaged the GPU, or is it just my imagination?

    Powerstrip will do this sometimes and uninstalling it and ya video drivers then reloading the drivers should fix ya problem.
