Default Bad GPU??

So since i did my summer slowdown of folding, I'm getting BSOD, lockups and random reboots.

My 2nd screen will go bright Pink or purple and then the system freezes usually with a nv driver issue.
Also the temp on the main screen gpu will skyrocket, yet no load is shown on it.

I'm getting reboots and no error reports, and I've even got a system lockup with no info bor reboot.

I'm stumped, as I'm not oc'd, System temps are 42C idle 63C load, Amb is 27Cish..

I'm leaning towards my oldest 260, but what gets me is screen 2 goes technicolor and gpu 1 goes crazy.

Ahhhhhhhhhh.

btw it happens while using Excel!

So have you tried one at a time yet? Tried different drivers than what you're using now? Checked the Event Viewer to see if there's any clues in there either?

Event view shows nothing. Havent tried just 1 at a time.

Not that easy for me.

Was going to roll back the driver, but i'm thinking it mighta happened with the older one i had, a 268 or such, the 270s lag while folding.

I would try the cards one at a time, and while you have each card removed I would clean them up.

Yha, that I did the other month when I swapped things over to the 650D.

Its only started after I stopped folding 24/7 on them 3 or 4 weeks ago.
