Hello, I need anyone that can help me with my brand new build.
Yesterday, I assembled a new computer and installed Windows 7 on it. The installation went well and everything looked fine. I started to instal some light programs ( like Firefox) by begining slowly with this new system. 2 hours later, I decided that it was time to instal a game and I installed Diablo 3. I was able to play about 30 minutes until a very strange/weird glitch happened. Half of the screen was kinda flickering and grey lines began to apear. I was surprised and I stopped to play. When I reached the desktop, the screen went black and came back and I saw the message saying that my graphical drivers failed and recovered successfully but the screen was always flickering and with random grey lines appering and disapearing. I decided it was time for a reboot. I rebooted and the problem was always here, but even more emplified. 15 minutes later, I got a blue screen, the error message was ***STOP: 0x00000116. Surprised, I turned off the computer and waited for 5 minutes. When I tried to come back to the desktop, the result was either a black screen, a blue screen (not BSOD), or a BSOD. This morning, I decided to do a fresh instalation of Windows 7. The whole thing went well but when I rebooted my computer, the whole screen was covered with blue dots all over the screen! I still couldn't access the OS without crashing/freezing or BSODing. The strange thing is that the computer wasn't affected until windows kicks in. When I was lucky, I could access the desktop for about 1 or 2 minutes before it crashed, but the colors were all weird. Even the safe mode was affected by this! Later, the whole computer was affected by this strange thing like a cancer. The begining text was all disorted, Asus start up image was completly gone, the BIOS was only a group of white points and dark blue rectangles. This whole thing is kinda spreading, it was simply flickering and some random grey lines and it became a real mess. BUT when I removed the graphic card and use the motherboard VGA plug, the computer was working like a charm! So what is this thing that ruined my day? I suspect it's a problem with the graphic card. But what? A bad graphic card? Corrupted drivers? A unicorn stuck in the GPU? I tried with 2 different monitors, and a TV, the same thing keep happening.
So my computer build is :
-Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3
-Asus Radeon HD 7850 2GB DDR5
-2X Corsair 4GB VENGEANCE DDR3 1866
-Intel Core i7 3770K Ivy Bridge
-Western Digital 2 TB Caviar Green
-Corsair TX750 V2 750W
-And LG BR/DVD/CD thing...
And I'm using a LCD monitor. And I almost forgot, those parts are new (I received them 1 week ago), so if something is wrong with them, I can exchange them for working materials, right?
Please, I need your help, I'm out of ideas.
Thank you for reading and sorry for the big text and for the mistakes.
