GTX 580 issue

Hello everyone, I have got a problem with my GTX 580 RoG Matrix. I was playing WoW and the display drivers crashed, another guild member had the same thing at the same part of the fight so I assumed it was some weird happening with the game. It came back up and worked again for a bit then it happened again, this time when it started displaying things again windows had no text and every open program was just a black box so I had to reboot. When I rebooted there were glitchy looking lines on the screen (will upload a picture when this laptop wants to behave), these lines were there from before loading windows.

I can get everything looking normal if I output through one of the motherboard display ports and it doesn't show the graphics card in device manager. I have tried DVI and HDMI outputs from the graphics card and both have the same glitchy lines. I have also tried different PCI-E ports on the motherboard which doesn't change a thing. The fans spin on the card and it lights up like usual (I at least think it lights up the usual colours).

If there are any more details I am missing that can help me solve what is going on and hopefully fix the issue then I would be happy to supply them. Thanks for reading this and hopefully we can get it working again.

some other HDDs I can read if needed

Sounds like its at its EOL.

But try to remove the card, clean out the dust. Reseat the card firmly. That card runs hot, so if theres a build up of dust in the heatsink it might be a little too much for the card.

I'd say to a full clean install of the drivers but if it shows anomolies at bootup then not much point there.

Could try running a graphics bench to see if stressing it crashes the drivers out. If it does, the card is most likely faulty in some way.

When my 780 started having driver failures it eventually died. I normally play SWTOR and drivers all of sudden started crashing and eventually freezing. Downclocked it and it gave it a little longer life (I also had turn down the graphics to make it playable) eventually it just died and had to RMA it.
