Recently I have completely upgraded my pc, and installed a new motherboard, ram and PSU, and used my prior GPU and case.
Everything has been running smoothly, except for when I am playing certain games my computer makes this restarting sound and then proceeds to a black screen where I can still heard sound but my keyboard and mouse are non-responsive.
For example I have been playing dead space 2 and when I get near a certain point in a level, my screen will go blank, my computer makes a "restarting" sound and then continues to play the games ambient music while nothing responds. And even stranger, when I hit my power button the sound cuts out and then (of course) I have to hold it for a complete shutdown.
This has happened everytime I play dead space, this has also happened in Crysis 2 twice.
After looking at other forums around the internet I have found others with similar problems but not like this...
I am avoiding bringing my pc to a repair place because of $$ concerns, any help would be great thanks!
My specs are:
Windows 7 64-bit
Intel i5 Core i5-3350P LGA 1155 @ 3.1Ghz
AMD Radeon 7770 1gb
Corsair Builder Series 600w PSU
ASUS P8Z77-M Motherboard
Standard microATX Case
2 WD Harddrives @ 7200rpm
