Windows 7: Flickering screen at startup - then black screen when I enter password

Flickering screen at startup - then black screen when I enter password

Hi there,

I developed a problem with my desktop pc yesterday. I was gaming and the screen began to flicker then the game crashed - citing "rendering device lost". I tried to re-load this again and the same thing happened again, this time with a BSOD. I tried a different game and the same thing occured, took slightly longer though. Given it was late I went to bed.

Today on loading up the sign in screen was flickering lots, I entered my password and was met by a black screen. The computer continued to make fan noises as if it was working, but nothing on my screen. This happened again. On restaring my computer the crash report read

"Blue Screen.
6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3
locale ID 2057
BCcode 1a
BCP1 0000000000005001
BCP2 FFFFF7009080000
BCP3 00000000000009ED
BCP4 B00000000

I've looked at the bug dump, but I was silly and did a system restore before this, so there's no bug dump.


The computer starts and runs fine in safe mode and without the graphics card in.

Since I've done a system restore
Cleaned everything again ( was pretty dust free to start)
Uninstalled and re-installed the graphics card drivers
Re-seated RAM and GPU
Done a memory diagnostic on my RAM
None of these have worked.
I've taken the graphics card out and it runs fine with the onboard GPU.

Some specs:
Intel I5 3570K
GPU - AMD Radeon HD 7870
Corsair Vengeance 8GB RAM
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77M pro
PSU -OCZ Core steam 500W

The pc has worked perfectly for 3-4 years with no issues with games previously. Real Temp GT clocks the GPU temp at 50-60 under load, similiar for CPU.

Do you need any more info to help diagnostically?

Is this all down to my GPU? Does anyone have any suggestions for a fix?

Here's the dxdiag file from the BDO collector

Edit - added all the other files - does the system restore I did affect these files?

I've taken out the graphics card so the issues have ceased, but would like to know if it's definitely due to the card
