Problem: Computer going into blackout and rebooting.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Couple weeks ago, I had my video card driver dropping and coming back, then started javing bsod over and over. then I updated driver and it seemed fine. Until now, my computer just go into a pitch black screen, freeze and then reboot. I can play fine for hours or it can happen 5time 3minute.

I have removed the video card from the computer and so far, no black out. I am on the integrated graphic of the MB atm.

Also something new in the problem, my computer is taking age to load windows, over 3 easy minute, my screen goes into "sleep mode" or black for a short time until windows start loading again.

I'm about to reformate the computer, maybe it'll help and fix the problem, hopefully. but then, by precaution, i sent email to asus about the video card for warranty info and help as well.


So my set up is:

Asrock Z77 extreme4
Asus GTX 670 4gb
Intel i7-3770k
Corsair AX850
Gskill sniper series 12gb ram ( was 16 but a 4gb bar failed on me)

So hopefully you guy gonna have some idea on what to do.

If taking the video card out fixed it, I'd say it's one of two things: either your video card is defective (my vote) or your power supply is failing (I doubt it).

Rather than completely reformat, just try running a live OS from a flash drive or something and see if you can get the problem there. In my experience, if I have stability problems in my system they manifest themselves sooner in linux than in windows (read it how you will), which may give you a clue if it's OS related or not.

I'm due to a cleanup anyway. I think i messed up alot fo registry by runner ccleaner a month ago. So fixing registry and cleanign all the trash ive accumulated will be good. Anyway, if that doesn't fix it, I have a 3year warranty on the card ... so let see what happen.
