Computer keeps crashing - Help

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Ok well basically my computer keeps crashing pretty much every time I try and play a game, hardly ever happens when I'm just using it normally. I thought this may of been a graphics card issue seeing as sometimes lines come down the screen like in a striped pattern, but I have recently pretty much upgraded all of my parts. I upgraded motherboard, PSU, new cpu fan, case. After upgrading my computer kept on crashing when playing some games. So I brought a new graphics card, this didn't help computer still crashes. The old parts in my computer are the CPU and Hard drive, so I am thinking it may be on of these that may be causing the crash? I have checked event logs nothing in there suggesting any crashes. Also which when I boot back up there isn't a crash error message appearing which I find odd seeing as on my setup there was one, which suggested it was the graphics card.

PC Specs:

Case: Antec 11 hundred
PSU: Corsair TX650 v2
Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth 990fx
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 945 - OC'd 3.6GHz
GPU:Gigabyte HD 7850 OC Windforce X2
RAM: Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz Vengeance Memory
HDD: Hitachi Hitachi HDS721010CLA332
Sound Card: ASUS Xonar DS Audio Device
OS: Windows 7 64bit - Home edition

I was wondering if there was some sort of test that I can do on all of the parts in my computer. I have ran a memory test and that passed it fine, but testing the cpu, gpu and hdd would help me out any suggestions would be helpful smile.gif

If any other information is needed please say.

Can someone at least give me some advice on this please smile.gif

When you upgraded did you do a fresh install of drivers? Removing all old drivers before installing the new ones? This is the first step that I would take.

I didn't, I would have but my internet is extremely slow and would take at least a month to get everything back again (games etc). I am tempted to though but that was a last resort sort of thing, just wondering if I should do anything before I do that.

Can you confirm if this crashes happens in all games or just specific games? Also, are you using the latest AMD drivers for your GPU?

Well it has crashed in CoD4, BF3 and League of Legends. It seems to happen the most in LoL though. Also I have just noticed the computer doesn't actually turn off, the computer carries on running and I can hear some sound coming through but then the sound will go computer remains turned on but has no display.

Have you tried changing your CPU & GPU back to stock settings to make sure it doesn't have anything to do with your OC?

Ok just changed the CPU back to the stock setting and I never overclocked the GPU. The thing is it doesn't do it at a certain point in the game, I could play about 3 games for about 2 hours and it won't crash then suddenly it will just crash :/

I have seen random crashes before in games and a lot of times it has to do with overheating of CPU or GPU due to either overclock or poor cooling. Have you tried gaming yet since you went back to stock settings?

well I have set it back to stock and have played a couple games since then and it hasn't crashed the computer yet.

Good to hear - maybe your OC wasn't 100% stable.
