When i get the computer it was a beast.
But when i keep using it. The problem keep poping up.
First the screen will shark in Game Loading Screen
Then it can't multi-task like mumble or vent will freeze in Loading Screen
Further more game start crashing in launching process ,during gameplay or change map or server...
Now the basic software like chorme, in web flash player will crash
and the video driver will stop working too

I did test on my ram and my SMART test on my hard driver..and they pass
and i reformat my pc like 4 time and still doesn't fix it
i have no idea what is the problem is

amd phenom ii x4 945
XFX Radeon HD 5850 Black Edition 1GB
Asus M4A78T-E AMD® 790GX / SB750 Chipset
G-skull 4Gb 1600

What power supply are you using? How are your temps when the system is operating under load? What, if anything, are you overclocking?

The temp don't go over 50

What anti-virus software are you using? Also, when did you last scan your system for malware? If not already using it, I highly recommend you download, install, update, and perform a full scan with malwarebytes (free version from malwarebytes.org). A full scan will take a while, but is worth the effort. Delete EVERYTHING it finds and scan again until the system is clean. See if that helps stabilize the system.

Where you recording/monitoring the temps of just the CPU? Have you tried using the on-board VGA instead of 5850?

Though the temps of the GPU are within tolerance, there still may be something wrong with the GPU. Have you tried a different GPU?

Did you scan with Malwarebytes?

Ensure you memory timings/voltage is set to that recommended by MB/mem manufacturers....

you could try relaxing your RAM freq/timings and/or try running with a single stick in required slot to see if problem is possibly RAM related.

The OP indicated no OCing. If that is the case, then his RAM is running stock and not the rated 1600 level. Unless the RAM itself is defective (running memtest will verify one way or the other) this is not likely a RAM issue.

I run the memtest and i the RAM pass it

Dropping to a single stick of RAM on an alternating basis and retesting the system is free....

Swapping PSU, GPU, or MB.... is not.


If your crashes are intermittent, passing memtest for 2 minutes or even an hour does not tell you much, except that your memory is not 'blatantly' bad *while you are running the test*.

The Asus website shows 1.9V DDR3 voltage (vice the semi-normal 1.6=1.65V) for at least one of the G-skill 4 gb kits, and recommended/tested timings for 1333MHz....

I'd be double checking BIOS settings/timings/voltages very carefully.
