GTA glitch or GPU broken/memory leak?

Question

rhinotteros

Ok so I purchased GTA 5 not 5 days ago, installed it slowly but surely (Disc, not steam), ran the game and no problems to start.

Then I got close to the end of the first mission and and started seeing purple, yellow, blue, all the colours of the rainbow boxes flashing all over my screen every second. Before i new it i was driving away in the chase scene and my game crashes, black screen flashing for about 2 minutes looping until finally GTA 5 stopped responding.

 

I updated drivers to beta, ran Benchmarks, watched the heat, fan speeds, usage and everything, nothing was iffy apart from the dedicated memory.

It was slowly moving up and up till around 3.6gb then fluctuating a bit before the game crashed.

I am not to sure how the dedicated memory works but could this be a memory leak or something? I have no problems with ANY other game, so my first thought was GTA itself.

 

It also happens mostly in cut scenes and when playing the screen flashes white with everything outlined black occasionally, mostly at night.

Sorry i have no images or footage, if you need some just tell me i can record while playing till it happens.

 

PC Specs:

AMD FX 8150 3.60 GHz (almost 3 years old)

16GB (4x4) Corsair Vengeance LP Ram (almost 3 years old)

AMD Radeon R9 290 4GB (Less than a year old)

60GB SSD (Windows) (almost 3 years old)

2TB HDD (GTA) (almost 3 years old)

Windows 7 Pro SP1 x64 (1 failed update, "WindowsUpdate_000013EC" "WindowsUpdate_dt000")

 

I would greatly Appreciate any feedback I could get.

P.S. I am using GPU-Z to monitor my Card,\

P.S.S Any information i have missed out on that you need just tell me

 

Cheers,

Ryno

What do you mean what beta drivers, im using the 15.4 beta drivers, i just checked and there is a 15.5 driver but it says for witcher and project cars. that must have come out within the last 24 hours cause 15.4 was the latest as of yesterday

Update to the witcher beta drivers (15.5 beta) and give it a shot.

So I tested it tonight for a few hours, no crash but still having the flashes of white and colourful boxes popping up, stayed around 3500mb dedicated. Not sure how to fix but hopefully it stays not crashing.

Try using DX10 and DX9 instead of DX11 and see if that fixes anything.

Tried DX10 and 10.1 all i have to chose from, is it as simple as installing DX9 cause i allready use it for farcry but it doesnt show up in gta. Also no results from 10 n 10.1, same issue.

They flash for just one frame and I can sometimes get them 30-40 times a cutscene, the other lighting glitch where everything goes white bar silhouettes I didn't get any of.

I had an issue where the game will stop working during the first Franklin mission. I reinstalled it and it worked. Reinstall it and see if it works.

What is the most efficient way to un-install the game and do I have to do that huge update again afterwards or will it keep that? But tis not a bad idea

I'd personally put that down as a GPU problem, even if it's fairly new. Make sure it's not overheating, and maybe take it out and use compressed air to remove dust, especially if there's any in the slot. I guess reinstalling the game may be a good idea - there's no efficient way of uninstalling it, and you'd have to do that update again.

The /update folder can be backed up and then replaced after a re-install.
