Hey guys I just wanted to share this in case some of you are running into stability issues in game(s) and you suspect it to be your video card.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
 
I ran across this application after searching for an something to test the VRAM on my video card and I have got to say that it found exactly what I thought was wrong with my card.

Here is the URL for the download(s): https://folding.stanford.edu/home/download-utilities/

In particular I have an AMD card which means I run OpenCL, so on the website I downloaded MemtestCL 1.0 for Windows. If you have an NVidia card then you run OpenGL/CUDA so you will download the MemtestG80 1.1 for Windows.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
 


-- Once the download is done extract the contents of the zipped file.

-- Open the folder you created from extracting and right click "memtestCL.exe" or "memtestG80.exe" and select "Run as administrator".

-- Follow the prompts to run it. In my case I input "1" because I have an "AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing" unit, which is a long term for an AMD Graphics Card.

-- I input "0" because my card is a Hawaii based architecture graphics card, which includes all R9 280/290 series cards. Always select the opposite of the on board graphics unit.

-- I then input "n" because I did not want to share my results.

-- It will then run its tests and output the results. It should come out clean. If you find errors then you have VRAM that is malfunctioning.


_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
I found that my video card has bad RAM.

::UPDATE::There appears to be issues with the Hawaii based architecture with this tool. There appears to be no newer version to accurately test the full function. Nvidia cards are fine to use this.

So Sticky, do you have a problem or not? Or do you still not know for sure?

And yes I meant with your video card, that would have been too easy for me to leave open.
