I had recently bought a new GPU, and and motherboard..... i had a gtx 650 and everything worked fine no problem at all..... after the GPU upgrade i get a Bsod once a day, specially when its idle, or very light browsing.....
Today i got my monitor from Qnix, and from the morning i m getting Bsod once every 15-20 minutes... its a 1440p 60hz not overclocked.
What could be the problem? are te 13.12 drivers bad?
yes its the latest driver, and i havent overclocked anything..... i get Bsod once a day before, i got the 1440p korean monitor in the morning, and i get constant Bsod.... it doesnt seem to happen if any video is playing..... but on idle, or if i minimize the screen for a second, Bsod attack
My main question can a new monitor cause Bsod?? since its simply an output peripharal, i thought it shouldn't... i presume.... and i had Bsod's once or twice a day before this new monitor..... but after this new monitor, it happens every 15 minutes, specially when idle, or light browsing........ and before my 270x, i had my friend's gtx 760, for 2 months with absolutely no problem and everything smooth.....
Have you tried downgrading to a earlier version? To see if that helps
will do it soon, after i get back home... could you tell what would be the best downgrade version(i read somewhere 13.11 beta 9.4 correct me if i am wrong).. and how to uninstall properly with no traces at all.....
Cuz first we have to make sure that it's not a software error. Chances are slim that it's a hardware error though.
I had the same problem with an R9 290 card. I thought the card was defective, tried my older GPU, the error was the same.
I've updated every driver and bios to the latest version, i didnt help me though.
It turned out the PSU was defective (funny thing is my PSU was a Corsair too and it died after ~3 weeks, my friend has the same PSU model like you, his died after 6 months).
I've sent back the PSU bought a Seasonic one, and the black screens are gone. Everything running smoothly.
Also when I've used the integrated graphics of the processor (i7 4770k, so same integrated HD4000 series like you have), I've never encountered black screens at all. But as soon as there was a GPU hooked on to the machine, blackscreens after 15 minutes or less, even when idle.
