Hi guys! I recently purchased a new video card & power supply to feed it. Ever since I bought the graphics card, my screen randomly freeze for 10~ seconds, go black and will either then go normal, or close my game... This happens VERY frequently(3-5 times minute). The video card I bought is an HD Radeon 7770, with a 700W PSU. I got a new power supply, so that's not the issue. I replaced my graphic card for another one(the same one, just to see if it was a defective card). I tried uninstalling and re-installing the drivers many times. I honestly have no idea what to do, and the only computer places around here are extremely retarded and have no idea how to help me. I really like this video card and would like to keep it.

System specs:
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600) (7600.win7_gdr.120503-2030)
System Manufacturer: HP-Pavilion
System Model: AY018AA-ABL p6310f
BIOS: BIOS Date: 11/12/09 14:45:05 Ver: 5.13
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 630 Processor (4 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
Memory: 6144MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 6144MB RAM
Page File: 2572MB used, 9711MB available
Windows Dir: C:\Windows

I've never done any overclocking or anything of that sort. The problem began as soon as I got it.

PS: It only does this while gaming.

Try Vsync settings on or off and see if it changes any.

Vertical sync has no effect. The new power supply I have is: Apevia 700W

Apeiva is known for other things than quality and should be avoided, it certainly should be big enough though.

The power source isn't the issue, I'm positive.

Did you uninstall the drivers from the old video card, and have you tried disabling integrated graphics through the BIOS (if available)?

I'm not sure how to do that.

I see there's a BIOS update for your system that addresses a similar problem available on the HP site here:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=...

Try updating the BIOS and any other drivers available. If the problem persists, you can disable integrated graphics by restarting and pressing the button to enter setup on the POST screen (should be F10 for HP machines). Look around for something like advanced chipset configuration, and disable integrated or on-board graphics accelerator.
