No error, no BSOD, just blank screen...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Has this happened to anyone else - I'm testing with Linx and I come home to a black screen, nothing more. No BSOD, Windows doesn't say it recovered from an error when I restart, nothing. I just turn the monitor on and get... nothing, power light orange.

Going by the logs, Linx stopped recording suddenly (doesn't say stopped on error or completed) after 73 runs (about 4 1/2 hours in). This is another odd catch, because when there's a BSOD, Linx isn't able to right a log file before the system crashes. Yet, today it shows a log file.

Does this type of thing point to something in particular that needs to be tweaked? Past experience (which is minimal with this type of issue), seems to relate it to QPI speed. However, my QPI speed is lower than its previously proven stable speed by about 240mhz and on the same voltage.

This happend to me once during OCCT using the linpack tester.
When i rebooted and everything, my video card seemed like it reset it self to stock settings. Bsods usually but all i could think of was gpu error... and it couldnt recover.

everytime its happened to me(happened mutliple times folding) It was generally a cpu instability, not an easy fix either. its beyond blue screen. It happened at 4.6ghz for me trying to run x22 multi and too low of volts.

^That's what I'm afraid of. As I mentioned to you in PM, the only other time I've repeatedly gotten this type of thing is when my QPI was higher than it wanted to be and no amount of voltage would stabilize it, I simply had to lower it. Either that or the board just didn't like that QPI multiplier. Come to think of it, maybe it doesn't like this one either. I'll have to give the 40x (which I know it likes) a try if I can't get anything else to work.

That's odd because my video card fails to apply the OC settings on reboot as well. However, I really don't think it's a GPU issue because the GPU runs perfectly fine at my previously stable settings. I think it's more of a driver issue that has to do with the system crashing. If I turn things off completely and turn it back on, the GPU overclock applies just fine.

Eh everything works fine
its only happened once during testing and never again.
I'm not worrying about it because there isn't a log or anything that i can look
to see what happened.
(although i do remember it bringing up the OS screen saying it was improperly shut down because i had to hard boot it)

This is what it was last time. I'm hoping that's all it is this time.

To anyone else that may be having this issue, just set "disable the display" to "never". It's nothing more than a hard lock. The reason the screen is black is because the display has been disabled and the computer is locked so you can't revive it. If you don't let it disable, you'll be able to see exactly where and when it locked up.

For the record, I bumped VTT another notch and failed at the same 4 1/2 hour mark. I'm now trying another notch up. If this doesn't improve things, I'll start looking at the RAM.
