Hi Everyone,

My computer keeps freezing and going black and then back to normal again. It gives me the message that the GFX driver didnt respond but is now restored again and if I try running a game or open FireFox, closing a window, it freezes and goes black and back again. :sweat: 

I just boght this system 14 days ago and it has worked just fine untill now.


My system (windows 7 64-bit):

Motherboard: GA-Z68AP-D3

CPU: i7-2006K

GPU: GeForce GTX570

PSU: RaidMax RX-700AC 80+ Bronze

HDD: Seagate SATA3 7200rpm 1000GB

Hi,

From the symptoms you gave us, it's clearly a GPU / GPU driver issue.

Do you have latest nvidia drivers installed, all windows update ?

You might have to send it back to be replaced .

I thought so too, so I tried installing all drivers from the 277,33 to the 285,62 and still the same problem.

Windows is up to date.

Maybe you'r right about sending it back.

Right now im running Skyrim, but just to be sure it wasn't a game issue, I tried opening WoW and the same **** happens.

You think I should replace the PSU? If so what would you recommend?

I would recommend a corsair TX650 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It seems like the psu is the issue, and that one is not a good one 2x 23 amp rails.
Whereas the tx650 is lower wattage and 53 amps...


Ok thanks, 384-bit.

Is there any idea in buying a PSU with higher wattage for future upgrades now that I have to grab my wallet anyway?

Maybe, but a GTX 570 should last you for a few years and newer graphics cards will be on smaller dies which should reduce power requirements. Unless you plan on SLi, a good 600-800 watt power supply is perfect for most gaming systems.

The psu i chose is a decent unit and has brilliant reviews.
You only need more juice if you are planning on a dual gpu setup.


OK so if I was to do something stupid like replacing my GTX 570 with the 580, it would manage?

I'm asking because I just spoke to the guy selling me the system an hour ago. He now wanted to sell me a SSD and if I took the offer, he said he would replace the 570 with a 580 free of charge.

I asked him about the PSU and he told me that I should consider a higher wattage PSU.

So I just thought that maybe a TX850 would do the job?

Thanks for your time btw much appreciated :)
