Just built a new computer, and it was going pretty well for a few days. But now it's freezing and showing a crazy static screen a few minutes after booting. Usually when this happens the keyboard loses all functionality, but I can just press the power button on the case to shut down (i.e., don't have to hold it or unplug machine).
Think this is a bad graphics card? Or could it be something else?
I ran memtest and HDD diagnostics with no problems showing up. Have the latest drivers, and am starting to think I should try an older driver version for the gpu. I have the OS on a SSD drive so reformatting isn't a problem.
I might try just reformatting and re-installing windows. I think the problem started when I tried to get fancy and install drivers beyond what windows 7 wanted to do.
