Couple problems I've been having lately out of the blue.

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Alright so. Recently started playing Starcraft 2 again and Ive been notice several problems lately that I cant even understand why its happening.

First problem occurred when I started my computer one day. I pressed the power button on my comp, and before I could press the power button on my monitor, the beep came for boot, then the comp turned off, and turned back on and loaded properly.

Next problem was when I was playing SC2 my screen would flicker a little, minimize, restore, and my GPU fans would turn to very low speed, but my overclocks were staying the same. Like 900/2050. Just my fans would reset. The game would then continue to run properly. It seemed like it crashed my overclock, but only the screen flickered a little then my fans turned down. The game never crashed and the drivers never stopped responding.

Third issue which i encountered today was my computer froze on the Welcome screen for windows 7 and when I restarted it, it froze again while it was on my desktop. I'm not sure why this is happening. I usually get BSOD, but I did a 12 hour stable run on prime 95 blend. I'm confused. I'm not currently running the comp, playing SC2 properly, no freezes or crashes or anything.

Seems like all my problems are very oddly timed and periodic. Random times, random places, weird. I'm not sure where these problems are stemming from. BTW, my video overclock settings are stable as well. Ran heaven for 45 mins, OCCT for 1 hour, many many many 3dmarks, BF3 for like 40 hours, and SC2 for many hours. Everything seems stable, just odd that some of these things are happening.

Please any knowledge that you can provide as to why this is all happening to me would be great.

HMMMMMM LAST THOUGHT... My power supply. Ive got the ****test PSU ever. the CM GX 750. Could this be the issue? Hmmmmm

EDIT: Had the comp for about a month or two now. Seems like it could be the motherboard or PSU.. Not sure. REALLY need some help please.

Ya but this happens randomly. Im sure I can run SC2 with stock settings, but ive ran MANY hours with overclocked settings. Like all day yesterday and today and nothing happened.

You've self-admitted to having "the ****test PSU ever"; picking up a solid, top-notch unit locally is really cheap insurance to ensure the rest of your system doesn't go boom...

Sounds like either a cold boot issue or boot loop, are you using sleep function with PLL overvoltage?

If it's only that game and no other then it could just be driver related and that particular game support, try reinstalling it or using different driver like the 266.58 which is the most stable driver out. By the way is that a reference 570?

Have you tried a memtest and check the HDD for error's?

Could be related to what I said above.

Not the best PSU in the world but still should be able to handle a single 570. Check with a multi meter.

By sleep fuction, do you mean putting my computer to sleep? If so, then no. I just shut down every night. I never put my computer in sleep and its either always on or off. Never sleeping or any power saving state. I have PLL overvoltage on though.

Hm, makes sense about the driver. Im using the BF3 beta driver so possible that is the issue. But would the driver do that weird things to my video card? Like turn off the fans but leave the settings and not crash the game?

Don't know what reference is. Does that mean stock? Its a EVGA 1280 stock HD 570. Bought it from new egg.

Don't know when Memtest is.

Hm. Now I'm not sure if this is relevant at all, but its been really confusing me lately. Alright so I keep hearing a small tick, tick, click, tick, like a sound you would hear if a wire is slightly touching a fan. But Ive triple checked if any wires are touching any fans and it really seems like everything is cleared away from the fans. This happens like at very randoms times, never a for sure thing. This may sound really stupid but is something like not plugged in properly or like something is like frying or like electricity is like sparking? it really sounds like a spark or some type of short circuit or something. I dunno that may be the dumbest thing ever. Im just wanting to blame it on the PSU because its a piece of ****.

EDIT: I had a little typo on my last post that may have confused you. I said that I was currently using the computer daily, and ive played SC2 for the past two days without any issues at all.

BF3 beta driver could be the issue, revert back to an older driver.

Could you link us to the 570 that you have, if it's the refernce PCB , then unfortunatly it's the one with the VRM issue's. The overclocking capability on the reference 570s are effected because of the weak VRM's. Could be that your card is dying, have you not read THIS thread. What voltage are you using for your GPU overclock?

Memtest is a program in dos that checks the RAM for error's.

The ticking noice could be coming from anywhere lol could you try and pin point it's location?

It could be the PSU fan that's rattling, I've heard that happening before.

How do I get the memtest program? Can you link me to a download please?

I cant seem to pin point the ticking sound. Hm, next time it happens I'll really try to focus on where its coming from and check the wires again.

Voltage on my card is 1100.


Reading that thread that you linked now.

Hm the PSU fan rattling could be it, never really checked the PSU for the ticking. ALways thought it was one of the case fans/CPU fan.
