I've been having issues with a computer I've built recently. Whenever I play games like WoW, Killing Floor, and now Diablo 3... I'll be able to play for awhile, but maybe after 30min to an Hour my computer will just crash. Black Screen on monitors, sounds coming from speakers (no music continues normally. It's more like the last sound going "ErerrrrrrRGghhhhh" lol). No blue screens or anything.
Now... I originally thought it could be a GPU issue. But i've already RMA'ed one card, and gotten a new one. This one has run pretty well so far. But I don't know. I'd feel awkward RMAing another card.
I've performed Stress tests on both my CPU and RAM for at least 4hours on each with no errors coming up for either.
SO I am kind of stumped. I was reading "BSOD while playing games"
and thought my issue was a bit similar.
I went through the steps that writhziden had posted in that thread. Disk Check - I had no errors on any of my drives. SFC - I had ran that before a few times. And finally the Verifier, which caused my system to crash in regular start-up. But it was fine in safe mode.
SO yea... I'm looking for any help that might help me resolve my issue with black screening while playing games.
