Computer crases games, everything else works. - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Swapped out everything but still same exact symptom. Black screens while gaming. All stress testing passing.

Did the system come pre-built from a vendor?

Also, you did not mention your OS or your hard drive. Did you reformat and fresh install the OS?

Not having standoffs wouldn't cause it to not game. It would cause problems much sooner than the point where you realize you're game isn't working.

OP says he tried a different PSU.


If you have formatted it's not software. Unless you have some program conflicting but I've not heard of any that are biased against games.

What is you're monitor setup? 1, 2, 3, 34? The problem doesn't seem hardware. When you figure it out you're going to slap yourself I bet.. It's probably something stupid that no one will think of.

I always forgot to tell you all what caused this, but it was the only item I hadn't replaced, the CD-Rom. Sony nec. Replaced it, hasn't failed so far. Thank all for the help.
