my computer keeps freezing and then becoming non responsive, it happens when i play any video game or even if i take too long at the loading screen, the computer doesnt shut down but the monitor either freezes or just goes dark so i believe it to be a problem with the video card? any ideas? please help!!!
The first thing I check when I get a freezing/ crashing computer (and I get a lot of them) is to run a memory test. Try running memtest86 for at least three passes to test the memory. There are many other causes of freezing computers but I would try this first.
