I switched the asmedia drivers to the stock intel drivers and right after boot my screens went black and I had to reset. I thought that was maybe a fluke but it happened again about 6 hours later. So it is not the asmedia drivers.

My last two options are the PSU and the RAM and it looks like it is going to be awhile before I can get a decent PSU.

My Support Ticket from Corsair mentions trying a different cable from power supply to GPU as well as different connection into the PSU

No random lockups since changed GPU cable - so far so good

No random lockups in like 3 or 4 days, a whole day after I changed the Asmedia drivers....
I may just go ahead and change the GPU cable also just in case.

Update: I had a random lockup just a few minutes ago. It made it all week without freezing which is not really new. I have made it a week and a half before without a random freeze instantly followed by the black screens.

Today's mail should have an IO board in it. It is for this Asus zenbook I got for $30 because it didn't work. I took it apart and cleaned it and got it working, but the IO cable is bad causing it to shut everything off every so often plus some things connected to the IO board don't work properly. If this fixes the laptop enough so it corrects most of the other issues I will go ahead and do the RMA for my PSU.

Good news, that's a needle in the haystack right there.. hope that's really it.

Would I be correct in saying that you used to get "Black screens" AND "random lockups"?

Would I also be correct in saying that you no longer get the "Black screens" and now only the random lockups?

It could be possible that there are two independent issues here and wondering if you may have addressed one of them already...



This may NOT be related BUT: IMO it seems to have something to do with static electricity issues. I get lockups also occasionally when it "seems" my O/C isn't stable... even when the settings are "known stable". The strange thing is that the O/C could be stable for days/weeks and then all of a sudden for whatever reason it isn't anymore.. Shutting down/rebooting doesn't always help as it will start to lock up when loading the desktop. I learned that there is a "trick" to "fixing" it when this happens, I discovered sort of by accident... If I just reboot/reset or even shut down the system it doesn't always help however if I literally shut down then UNPLUG the power supply from the wall, press the power button on the PC (to in theory discharge any capacitors but could be placebo) plug it back in and start up the PC, I get a "overclock has failed message", I ignore it and then just reboot the system where it re-loads my O/C settings and then it is fine again for weeks. If I do this when I lock up, 100% of the time the next boot works just fine with the exact same O/C settings.

This time of year the static is everywhere being so dry and I have a habit of touching the case (mine is metal) to discharge any static before I touch any of the components inside. I get the "zap" when I touch the case... or sometimes when plugging in a USB drive... and if the PC was running that "zap" will usually lead to instability/locks.. it may take a few minutes or be instant but I find that in almost all cases I need to shut down, unplug from the wall, discharge and start over to return things to normal. I can't explain why unplugging/plugging clear this static issue (maybe someone else can) but this has happened to me so many times now it isn't a fluke and the "fix" is consistent for me. This only started this winter when it became super dry here.

Damn it - Random lockup after changing GPU cable so thats not it !

Going to go through the painfull process of swapping PSU with another one I have in another PC.

If problem still exists then i am starting to feel its something on the board ? another thing i have noticed that plugging in USB devices into back of M/B locks the PC up sometimes ????

I'm still getting the lock up followed by the black screens. The black screens happen because the system locks up. The interesting thing is that event viewer still records the nvidia error if I am not there when it locks up and sits for awhile. The error is an "nvidia driver has stopped responding and has restarted", and it shows in event viewer like ever few seconds so if it sits for a few hours there are hundreds of those errors. So the system is running but everything is frozen.
Note that if I am at my computer when it happens first things start acting weird then everything on the screens freeze including anything video wise, the program showing fan speeds and temps, and the mouse. The backlighting on the keyboard also stops responding. I reset the system and boot it back up, but there is nothing in event viewer except for the alert that the system was restarted without completely shutting down first.

Also it is not static. I thought the same exact thing like 2 years ago when it first started happening. But it has been happening for about 2 years going through all the seasons from the cold and static laden weather to the higher humidity non static laden weather.

I once though I was also getting the lockups whenever I would jar my desk enough for things on top to rattle because it seemed to happen twice, but those times must've been by chance because I am unable to reproduce the effect.
If you get these lockups when you jar your system or some other means and you can recreate the lockups when you do those things then you have a different problem than I do. But I have also thought it is an issue on the board.

The other Power Supply makes no difference - same issue. PC locks up - screen goes black. I have tried pretty much everything and start to think something on the board is causing the issue now.

Sometimes i get random video drops - I get the gsync notification that keeps popping up

What is the event viewer you referring too - does that show what causes crash ?
