    Windows 10 keeps crashing with VGA GTX970

    Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 crashing computer. What could the issue be? - Windows 10 Forums

    Dear Experts

    My son desktop ASUS Motherboard Z97-K has VGA GTX 970 for gaming and it was working fine for 3 years so far,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,then all of sudden computer crashed, I suspected it was hardware issue.

    First thing I did removed VGA

    Installed a fresh copy of windows 10 then installed VGA card and computer crashed.

    Did the second installation and installed the VGA GTX 970 again and computer crashed again.

    If I use built in VGA computer wonít crash so far.

    How can I verify of its VGA GTX 970 problem or something else?

    Yes, I can try installing the VGA on different desktop but I donít want to risk crashing another computer if we have
    alternative way of troubleshooting

    A gamer using an overclocked GTX 970 for 3 years is likely to damage the Card and/or have fan problems.
    The obvious thing to do is check on the GTX 970 temperatures, and use stock speeds, check fans and see what happens. If that improves things then you know what the cause is.

    The fact the PC runs on the iGPU is a good indicator of where the problem is.
