Games freezing.

Hello.

I had problems with my computer lately, games keep freezing and sometimes I get BSOD.

My system is:

Motherboard : MSI K9A2 NEO
GPU : R6870 HAWK
PSU : ALTIS A-550DX
CPU : AMD PHENOM II 940 X4
HDD : WESTERN DIGITAL CAVIAR BLUE 500GB ( 2 days old HDD )
RAM : A-DATA 2x 2GB DDR2 800MHZ
OS : Windows 7 Professional Edition

I've done memtest86 with no errors, flashed BIOS, reassembled my computer and checked every cable. I've re installed Windows couple times, done CHKDSK, but I still have this problem.

I replaced my HDD, because I thought it was about that. However I still keep getting the same BSOD I got before the HDD replace.

BSOD :

I've ran WD diagnostics tool and it didn't find any errors. Hardware seems to run fine and so does Windows. My computer freezes or crashes whenever I am playing games, and my HDD makes strange scratching noise ( similar to the sound when some wire is touching a fan). It starts happening immediately I start a game ( menus work fine).

I am running out of options here.

  1. Sometimes I also get KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR bluescreen, but that was before I got this new HDD.
  2. Best answer
    It seems like a faulty psu. Does your motherboard have integrated graphics?, if do take out the 6870 and see if these problems persist.

    Try to update the driver of your WD HDD in deivce manager and see what happens.
  4. Yeah, it seems to be PSU that is failing. HDD shuts down when I play games and that is most likely caused by PSU since the HDD is brand new.

    It was indeed about the PSU. I got myself an XFX 550W Core Edition PSU and everything seems to work fine so far.
