When i attempt to sometimes which a tv show on my computer my screen goes black and my audio stays on for about 20 seconds afterwards then it starts repeating itself. I just replaced both my GPU and my motherboard. My GPU is a XFX R9 290, and my motherboard is a ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0. My Harddrive on startup and randomly while useing programs sky rockets to 100% use and lags the computer down quite a bit. but i don't think that is the cause of it. any advice would be helpful.

Sounds like a driver issue, remove all your old drivers from Control panel>uninstall programs and remove everything AMD, Also download a driver sweeper like gru3d and make sure all your drivers are definitely sweeped. Now reinstall the the drivers for your GPU from the website.

This did not fix the issue. it made it happen less frequent. Any more ideas?
