I recently installed Crysis on my vista 64bit. However, after playing for a few minutes, the screen goes completely black with a box on the top left switching between analog/digital and it soon goes into standby mode. If i restart the computer immediately, it will only produce a blank screen during bootup. I have to wait a few minutes before turning it on to get a display on my monitor again.
My computer can handle most games (if not all games) on the max settings. This has also happened with my copy of Trine, which is not the most graphically demanding game out there, so my graphics card should'nt be the problem.
I've looked around at other forums but i cant seem to find a solid solution.
i've had this computer for about two years and have not really opened it in a long time other than when i sent it to the shop to replace my motherboard. That was only a few months ago. My motherboards have a bad habit of getting fried and i have replaced it two times already.
I apologise but i do not know my power supply right now. I'm not sure I want to open the computer up just yet without someone else around.
CPU-Z says i have a clocks multiplier of x12.0, not sure if that would help.
I dont monitor the temperatures as im using a master cooler case so i've always thought things were, um, cool.
