Hello everyone, i recently got my pc back after 1 year (cause it was in another country with my sister)
when i first turned it on it had some white horizontal stripes everywhere,
and i said to myself let me restart maybe it'll be fixed byitself so it did, and i realised that it had too much to
download and update so it got really slow and i wanted to restart one more time and again
the white stripes kept coming again and stayed forever.
my graphics card is ASUS STRIX GTX 970 OC (and it didn't had any problem last year when i first bought it).
so now my question is, is the problem from the motherboard aka the PC or is it from the Graphics Card itself?
cause i tried uninstalling and downloading and updating windows updates and every driver there is plus the
graphics card is not being detected by the PC, it shows the model name but there's that exclemation mark and i
did try removing the graphics card and put the dvi cable from the motherboard and it was fine, but the problem
was from the Graphics Card.
So please let me know what you think and how to fix this, or do i have to buy a new gpu (graphics card) or does a
format help? even though i tried resetting the pc but it's all the same, let's hope that it's from the gpu and not
from pc so i can buy a new gpu (also does the gtx 1000 work on this motherboard or not?).
Thanks alot guys please let me know of what you know and think.
