Jul 23, 2020
hey people, does anyone is having trouble with this specific hardware? It a video card. Mine was bugging and not sending images to the screen after a few hours plying, but then i gave it back to maintenance and it worked just fine for endless hours. My pc fried my last video card so i'm waiting to get my radeon 560 back, but what should i do if it keeps bugging? Is my pc overheating or something? Can you guys help?

How, exactly, did your PC fry your last video card?
I have no idea, the it guy just said it was out of comission, and he was a long term friend of the familly. I didn't aksed thou. I recently put this question on facebook and someone sad about a malware the harvests bitcoins using my pc, does theses things actually happens? I download a lot of **** on my pc, pirate games and movies, so i wouldn't be surprised if i got a lot of dirty, but could that be a fact?
I don't want to format my pc, **** seens to drastic

There's a big difference between "my video card is out of commission" and "my PC fried my video card".

So we need to be clear about which it is, and if the IT guy did actually say your PC fried your video card, what did they mean by it?

Bitcoin mining viruses are a real thing and not unheard of.

There's probably not a whole lot of point giving troubleshooting advice on a system that may well be infested with malware and pirated software. And you can't troubleshoot your graphics card (e.g. check temps) because you don't have it currently.

Formatting the drives on your PC isn't "too drastic" though. 1) it's actually a fairly easy thing to do, as it setting Windows back up. 2) if it is a malware issue, you might need to to get rid of it (although some very nasty Malware will survive even that) 3) if it is bitcoin mining malware that's causing issues and is killing your graphics cards, pirating stuff seems like a false economy on top of every other reason it's a bad idea.

I think you should format the hard drives (erasing all partitions) and then perform a clean installation of Windows. Make your Windows install media on a different system (one without malware / loads of compromised software on it).

After that, run deep scans with things like free Malwarebytes as well as Windows Defender.

Then you might be in a position to investigate the GPU when it's back in your hands.
