Video cuts out, never resumes. Help, if possible.

I have windows 7 64 bit, OEM, original. System is only 9 months old. Problems only started recently, has made playing any game for longer than 45 minutes virtually impossible. Drivers are up to date as of this post.

This is the only place that I could find posts for anything close to the problems I am experiencing, so that is why it is in the BSOD thread.

One problem you have is repeated problems due to Bonjour, an Apple service. Run through the steps in Removing and reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows Vista or Windows 7 to remove and re-install all Apple software.

Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors. Post back if it continues to show errors after the third run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations.

Have you at any time used an "optimization" program to clean the registry? These programs can cause problems such as what you are experiencing and are not recommended.

Still persisting

I did what was asked, I have not used an optimization program, and the problem is still happening. The SFC /SCANNOW said that nothing was wrong either.

This could be graphics card related since you said it was related to gaming. Follow the steps for Diagnosing basic problems with DirectX. To re-install your display card drivers as outlined in the DirectX link, use the following steps.
  1. Download the latest drivers for your display card(s)
  2. Click Start Menu
  3. Right Click My Computer/Computer
  4. Click Manage
  5. Click Device Manager from the list on the left
  6. Expand Display adapters
  7. Do the following for each adapter (in case you have multiple display cards)
    • Right click the adapter
    • Click Uninstall (do not click OK in the dialog box that pops up after hitting Uninstall)
    • Put a tick in Delete driver software for this device (if this option is available, otherwise just hit OK) and hit OK
  8. Restart your computer after uninstalling drivers for all display cards
  9. Install the latest driver for the display cards once Windows starts

Alternatively:
  1. Login as an adminstrative user
  2. Download the latest drivers for your display card(s)
  3. Click Start Menu
  4. Click Control Panel
  5. Click Hardware and Sound
  6. Click Device Manager (the last link under Devices and Printers)
  7. Expand Display adapters
  8. Do the following for each adapter (in case you have multiple display cards)
    • Right click the adapter
    • Click Uninstall (do not click OK in the dialog box that pops up after hitting Uninstall)
    • Put a tick in Delete driver software for this device (if this option is available, otherwise just hit OK) and hit OK
  9. Restart your computer after uninstalling drivers for all display cards
  10. Install the latest driver for the display cards once Windows starts

Also, although you are not getting the TDR crash, the steps in the first three posts of STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting are very good troubleshooting steps for graphics card related errors. usasma is one of the best we have on here with hardware issues, so follow the steps closely.



Any luck with the steps to troubleshoot the graphics card?

It seems to have worked for now. Hasn't happened in the last 2 weeks. Hoping it's fixed for good.

My computer freezes every few seconds then resumes.
After I start up my computer it seems to work fine but starts to freeze for 3-5 seconds the returns to work normally, this lasts for about 30 seconds before it freezes again. I'm pretty sure this isn't virus or internet connection related. I have been trying to pin point the problem for the last...

No crash, everything just freezes for about a minute, then resumes?
Been noticing this for a while: Whenever I'm off the computer during the day, I place it on sleep. At the end of the day, I completely shut down. Not sure if what I'm about to describe occurs shortly after waking up from sleep or shortly after boot up. Nonetheless, as I'm browsing, or in my...

Video cuts out during "Expanding Files"

Sleep constantly resumes
I keep hoping that my problem will be resolved in each build, but no. What happens is that when I put my PC to sleep, it happily does that. Everything switches off correctly. But, a few seconds later, it wakes up and goes into the login screen. Works perfectly OK in Vista. Anyone any ideas? ...
