Screen buzzes, computer freezes, then display shuts off...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Before I actually explain this problem, I'd like to say that I am not sure at all whether this problem is caused by my Graphics. So if you think that my problem could be due to any other reason, please feel free to offer your advice.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay, just 2 days ago, I installed Ubuntu on my desktop. It has been working fine...until yesterday.

Now, I'm experiencing the same problem over and over again whenever I try to boot up my computer.

It would go something like this:

1. Boots up computer, computer powers on, but no display. Monitor remains black.
2. Restarts computer, there is an error stating that "Overclocking has failed. Press F1 to run Setup, F2 to go back to default settings and boot up".
3. I press F1 and go to BIOS.
4. Halfway, I get this:



Screen completely fuzzes up, and freezes at that too. Have to reboot.

5. Works normally for the rest of the time...

OR

6. Screen fuzzes up while I'm web browsing or something, then I reboot for the third time and it works fine.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I checked the cables numerous of times, they should be fine.

I THINK I downloaded the latest ATI driver, but I'm not too certain because I'm practically a newb with Linux. :/

Reverted back to default settings. Problem is still recurring.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, any suggestions?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oh, while I'm at it, I might as well ask a completely unrelated question so I don't need to make another thread.

1. Does running a 64bit OS with only 2GB of RAM actually cause a noticeable performance drop? I want to get the 64bit version of Win 7 HP, because I know I will be upgrading to 4GB of RAM in the future, I just don't know when though.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks in advance!!!

So when you turn your computer off do you turn off the PSU as well?

I noticed that I would get the same 'overclocking error' whenever I did the above. Also do you still get the error at stock?


It could also be bad onboard, might want to try another GPU if possible.

I'd get out an old PC out and see if it does the same thing, if it doesn't its your graphics or something is whack with your Mobo.

Clearing CMOS couldn't hurt either.

Clear cmos, try another PSU, then when that's failed, replace the onboard with a GPU, or RMA the board, cause that GPU needs a trip to the incinerator!!
sorry... I meant it would be due a roasting in the oven if it were a seperate card... (370f for 8-10mins) that artifacting is a sure sign of a blown GPU or board failure (and since it's on the mobo, that's a dead mobo)

As of now, no I do not do so. I just press the reset button, or force shut down my computer.

Don't think it's a bad onboard, as I've been using this onboard for the past couple months. Been working fine all along. This problem only started occuring yesterday. :/

It could be the motherboard...but thing is that the rig was working fine two days ago. In fact, it's working fine now provided I reboot 2-3 times. Strange...

I'll try clearing CMOS, and see how it goes.

Bleh, don't have a spare GPU to play around with (hence me using the onboard )




Thanks for the help and suggestions guys. +Rep to all.

Anyone else can offer advice?
