Computer freezing (occurs after booting up for 3-5minutes) again!!!

I think it's my video card heating up however, I had some people say the temperatures for both my gfx and cpu are fine when under load (Look at this for specs as well http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2215851/computer-freezing-occurs-booting-5minutes.html). I think it made be weird but, the past week, I did some cleaning using compressed air. Booted up my computer, played some Counter Strike Global Offensive. Usually my computer would start to act up as the temperature as the day goes on goes up, so, I did some testing. I realize that my computer starts to act up with 2+ hours of gaming. Note that I had this computer freezing/audio stuttering problem from the start of using this computer, which is very annoying but I find it tolerable that it limits the amount of game time I do but now, I cannot even boot my computer normally and have it stay for 10 minutes before it begins to stutter/freeze and eventually I have a black screen which makes me force to restart my computer. Currently I am in safe mode typing this and now I need help again!

I was thinking that it has to be a graphic card problem since when I put in my old gtx 9800, games are working fine. Also did some Malware Bytes scans but no viruses to be found.

Something to note as well, when I plugged back in the gtx 760, some text popped up and said that my system had been reset or something and told me to go to bios set up or continue normally. (could be that?)

  1. check when it tell you the bios set up to see if the gtx 760 is detect as it should .

    Bios detected my gtx 760, I let my computer rest for about 5 hours and now I can reboot normally, however, problem occurs when gaming for about 10 minutes :(.
  3. then use this on the sensor page for temp and other specs http://www.hwinfo.com/download.php also i would give a close look at the motherboard with a magnifier if you dont see any bubled capacitor or abnormal thing if the temp are good you could post the result back.

    Didn't check for anything abnormal yet but here are my temperatures under the conditions of gaming, http://imgur.com/40JAMjQ,j9ZItiJ,PiRxu12,KzAM1Ql funny because after taking these pictures, 5 seconds, my computer black screens showing "no signal" and the problem of booting computer up normally is back (currently in safe mode). The problem seems to be very consistent now. I'll post any pictures on anything abnormal tomarrow.
  5. why your gpu start at 37 c the rise at 69 c where you idle or doing something else .

    In my nvidia control panel, I set my power management mode to maximum performance because I cannot play games in the adaptive setting (the problem happens faster in adaptive mode I do not know why). So, when I boot up my computer, it would idle for 54C constantly. I realize some stains on my gfx which I found to be not suppose to be there? Quality for some of them is bad, but you do see the black stains that are on the gfx. I think in one of the pictures, some of the components are fried? Could it be that? http://imgur.com/QzulqLB,fOfyT5n,iOayYrk#0
    I have not yet found any anomalies on my mobo. I will also try to get better quality pictures if required, most likely I will though anyways.
  7. i would rma this gpu from the picture i seen .
  8. Should I ask for the same gfx or should I ask for something similiar? Since I already had RMA the same one and the problem still consisted.
  9. ask for a replacement include the picture in that you post also take in note all the number from the tag that are on the gpu board to see it they would not send you back this one again the other thing the fan speed freely and is connect to her on this gpu .

    Ok, just recieved my RMA gfx and the problem still consist. Is the problem now the psu?
  11. what hwinfo report for the voltage on the sensor part at idle and under some stress .
  12. Best answer
    The PSU could be struggling to send power to the GPU when it's actually working on soemthing, something being your game.
    Replace the PSU with a better quality.
    Just borrow a good one from a store, test, and if that fixes it, keep it, or return it to the store and get a cheaper but still effective PSU.
