Fairly recently I've started to get issues with this comp. I've had it get about 5 gray screens today occurring within 2 hours of each other. I haven't updated any drivers recently and I've gotten 2-3 of these before, but spanning across about a month. Only today have these gotten bad.
These gray screens will happen when I'm doing anything, not just gaming or doing intensive things.
Sometimes the lower 4 inches or so of my screen will glitch out(around my task bar) and horizontal lines will appear(I'm not sure about this, the lines or whatever they are, are not there long enough for me to properly identify them.)
I have no idea what the potential causes could be for this.
Here are my specs:
Core i5 3570k OC'd @ 4 GHz (stable 30 idle, 50 under load)
Radeon 7850 Core OC'd @ 1020, Mem OC'd @ 1260. (This is stable as well, before I started getting these gray screens I never got any crashes whatsoever that would indicate it was the overclocks for this, I even set them to stock and it still crashed)
ASRock z77 Pro4-M
620w PSU, I don't quite remember the specifics but I recall it was a decent quality brand, ratings were good on the site I bought it.
8gb 1600MHz RAM, G.Skill X Jaws Series
Thanks in advance, hope I can get this sorted out. I'm not very good at troubleshooting and I just bought this computer recently (a month 1/2 ago).
Umm, what you can do is a System Restore. If you have created any system restore points before any of the issues started occurring you will be able to go back to the previous state of the computer. It won't affect files but only windows related files.
But, it is always a golden rule to backup anything before doing any system restore. Perhaps a usb stick and backup your most important files.
