Power Outtage - now my games stutter

Recommended Posts

Alright guys so yesterday I was playing Skyrim on ultra graphics. No problems whatsoever. My power went out and it came back on and when it did so did my computer. But it was only for a second or so and then it went back off for a minute. Well when I went to play after that my games stutter. No matter what I play and no matter the graphics settings. A friend told me it's either my power supply or my graphics card that got shorted or are now bad. I have a GTX 570. When I run 3DMark Vantage it doesn't seem to have any issues at all though.

 

What could be wrong?

Could be some HD file corruption, a reinstall of the drivers or the game may help. Also do a test of the RAM and get Crystal Disk Infoand see if the HD has any issues. These are just some base places to start there are quite a few little things to check.

I took my computer to my friends house. Ran intelburntest and furmark at the same time. Didnt' seem to be the PSU. I checked out my bios and some settings were off. My graphics card was running at x8 native. I switched it to a different slot and it went back to 16 and then switched it to the normal slot and it fixed itself to x16 there also. I adjusted a few other things and it seems to be back to normal thankfully!
