Screen/GPU problem! Please help!

So me and my brother recently got a new rig for gaming after years of pleading and begging. With the help of my dad's friend we assembled a pretty good rig. However, nowadays, especially sometimes when my brother plays Minecraft, the screen sometimes flickers a few times, goes black and then we see the blue screen of death. It's not happened to any of the games I was playing, but the screen flickers sometimes. Its been three or four times its happened to my brother, though, so we're really starting to get worried. This cost quite a bit, and we don't want it to crash in less than a month. I would really appreciate it if you guys could help us find out what's the problem.

Specs:
Intel i7 4770k Processor
MSI Z87-GD65 Motherboard
Sapphire Radeon R9 280x (Dual-X) Graphics Card
BenQ XL2420T Monitor

Thanks in advance!!

  1. It could be the monitor or the PSU issue; could you post the error code from the BSOD(Blue Screen) and the crash dumps (if there were any) please? thanks!
  2. The next time it happens, ill try to tell you. How do I know which is the error code?
  3. It will say it on the blue screen :)
  4. OK, so i downloaded BlueScreenView from NirSoft, and they're saying it's caused by the driver atikmdag.sys
    Now what?
