    Is my gpu bad?


    It crashed during a game. Wasn't overclocked but i bought it used less than a month ago from ebay. Luckily it has a warranty. It looks fine in the driverless 800x600 resolution but when i change to 1080p i get artifacts all over the place. No audio anymore either. I used driver sweeper and reinstalled to still have the same visual issues.

    Is the fan free of dust and spinning freely? What temperatures are reported when it is running and giving artefacts/screen tearing?

    The fans are spinning, there's no dust in there, and I can't view the GPU temps as for some reason the driver's won't completely install. I can not get my other 2 monitors to detect. PrecisionX1 displays the logo across the screen but never opens.

    The screen effects also happen during the boot process. I left the tower off all night so it would have a cold boot and I still have the same display issue.

    I install the latest drivers, restart, and then when I open up GeForce Experience it says No Drivers Found. I have no idea what could be the cause for that.

    Look like you may need update firmware for your Gigabyte RTX 2080ti !!
    Have a look below for firmware here > GeForce RTX™ 2080 Ti GAMING OC 11G

    Use GPU-Z to determine if the graphics card is actually what you thought you bought. The message about non matching BIOS is concerning.
    Try re-seating the card.
    Normally artefacts on boot up are from a faulty GPU or VRAM .

    Well it IS a 2080ti 11g but no mention that it's a Gigabyte Gaming OC version

    Sure have.

    I really don't think it's a software thing. But to be sure I'm reinstalling windows from scratch on a blank hard drive to be sure.

    The artifacts aren't showing up beyond the display. When I print screen they are not there in the saved image.
    It seems that no matter what I do the Geforce drivers will not take. They install, claim to be successful but I still have no access to the Nvidia display settings. Geforce Experience STILL says there are no drivers found. Everything is up-to-date software wise.
