Radeon 7970 Black Edition XFX crashing

A few nights ago, after playing guild wars two i quit out of game, then i heard a really loud humming noise from the tower. I shut down computer, and while restarting it the screen checkered out and i had to reboot.

Now if i do anything but surf the net the whole computer will freeze out. No black screen just freeze out with what ever is on the screen.

I'm running 700 PSU which hsould be more then enough. I'm hoping the problem is not the graphics card and something else.

  1. What is the brand and model of PSU? (There are plenty of poor quality 700watt supplies out there that will struggle to support that GPU)

    If it's a Corsair, Antec, XFX, or Seasonic your gonna be fine...... @ 650watt or above
  2. I believe it is a corsair. I been running it for over a year, no problems at all. Just the other night was first time i had problem. Why I'm hoping it is not the graphics card.
