First of all, thank you for taking the time to read and respond (if you do!). Also, thanks for all the info I've gotten off of these forums in the past.
So, I'm getting a random blue screen. Lighter blue than I remember the Blue Screen of Death, and there is no text. I just built the computer recently after hunting for Black Friday deals... and I've already gotten a random blue screen twice. Seems the only thing I'm able to do is power cycle the box when this happens.
Neither time occurred during any intensive activity. The first time was a few minutes after I had installed steam, I believe. The second time I was on the net using Firefox.
Possibly related: I've been playing a bit of Warlock: Master of the Arcane, and I notice some flickering on parts of the screen sometimes. It's as if I'm looking "under" part of the hex map for a split second. I think this may be an issue with the game itself, however. I've played a small amount of Torchlight 2 and noticed no graphics issues there.
My next thought was trying to use the on board graphics of the motherboard for a while and see if it occurred again, to possibly narrow it down to just the graphics card itself... but I'm trying to get to the root of the issue as quickly as possible, because I think I may have to send the graphics card back. I'd rather get that done as quickly as possible so that it doesn't become a nightmare trying to return a product I've had for more than 30 days.
So a quicker method of troubleshooting, or any other advice, would be greatly appreciated.
