Thread: New Pc ?

    Thumbs up New Pc ?

    so i have built a decent ammount of pc's and i just got done building one for my gf. It works beautifully except for 1 thing every now and then when shes on the net or playing minecraft or something her screen will go black and we will have to restart the pc. Now this happens for about 3-4 times before it stops and does not happen again. Can anyone give me some insight. I'm thinking that the gpu may be bad but thats all i can come up with.

    I had black screen issues with my Sapphire HD 7970 OC. I had to return the card twice, the third one I got finally works.

    I'm inclined to think the video card is to blame as well. Check it's temps in Catalyst Control Center, under load and while idle. Let us know where they are sitting. This may be anecdotal seeing as how a faulty card doesn't necessarily have heat problems, but it may show us that it isn't operating within general working temperatures.

    What makes you know keys aren't registering? Is the monitor flickering on and off, without actually shutting down?

    Your motherboard supports onboard video, so remove the video card and see what happens while playing games. *Edit, nvm. Looks like you bought a processor without integrated video. Disregard*.

    Try a different card in it, see if the problem persists.
