My computer is freezing randomly. The image on the screen won't move and I have to restart. My temperature doesn't go above 50 celsius. My computer is newer, I run Spybot and keep the system unclogged.
AMD Phenom II x4 955
Asus M4A78T-D AMD 790GX
500GB Sata-2 WD5000ks
30" Dell monitor.
The problem is happening randomly. I had one online video going and opened up Windows control panel and it froze. Sometimes when I'm multitabling online poker. Any thoughts please?
CPU? Motherboard? Vid Card? Power supply? Any way to test?
might be worth mentioning exactly what ram you have as well as its timings,
Im not clever enough to know myself, but I pick up that a lot of freezes/bsods can be ram issues, post more details and maybe someone brainier can rule out the ram.
Alright, my ram is:[core i7-DDR3] 2GB DDR3 - 1600 GAMING SINGLE, two of them. Can changing that cool and quiet setting affect anything negatively? Any more thoughts? Not a techie, so any advice on bios settings?
For the record, my computer is set to High Performance in the Power Options. Had advice from someone to run the 64x Prime95 blended. I had Task Manager/Resource Monitor Open and Temp Monitor. My temp went up to 58celcius. My CPU usage was 100%, my Memory was about 80%. After 1 minute of running it my computer restarted. When I was logged back in, it shutdown and restarted again. Apparently it can bare no load.
Is this a CPU issue then? I wouldn't think heat as it should handle more before it quits.
yes, the videocard is your gpu,
your ram timings should be listed under memory in bios and look similar to:
trp12, a whole list of numbers like that
just list first five sequence, 6-6-6-14-22 or similar layout,
another way to find yours out is download something called cpu-z, its a handy tool and spells out your ram timings under the memory tab for you without having to trawl through your bios.
Your timings look high and your frequency as well, but as i say Im not good at timings myself, so hoping someone clever comes along
but having posted those details will help them help you more easily.
You and I have had the same problem I believe.
Google "Black Screen of Death"
This is a rather common problem. I thought this had been solved with the 4XXX series, but perhaps the ugly beast shows its head again with the 5XXX?
Cures found on solutions for the "Black Screen" helped me, they might you too.
Look for an actual fix though, not just a walkaround.
Well I guess I'll bump this to see if anyone can have a look at my timings/settings?
Though I'm pretty ignorant here, it seems the problem is more likely to occur if I'm watching an online video. Though it crashed in that PRIME95 Blended test. Thoughts?
