Ok, so i just finished building a new PC consisting of...
Sapphire Vapor-x 5870
4gigs gskill 1600
HAF 932 case
Its been running for about 4 days or so now, no problems while gaming in BF Bad Company 2 and Torchlight to test it out. Today however about 3 hours into a Torchlight session I encountered an odd error ive never seen before...
While playing I went through a dungeon zone and a few seconds after the next floor loaded my entire screen turned a dark greyish green color with thin black lines running vertically through it. The internet radio station i had been listening to continued to play for 10-15 seconds and then stopped. Shortly after that it flashed again to a black/darker green screen. At this point i hit ctrl/alt/del to hopefully pull out of the crash and 5ish seconds later the task manager blue screen popped up. Upon closing the task manager my Torchlight game was no longer open.
There was no error message whatsoever, my GPU was running at about 45 degrees at the time as well.
Ive been browsing various forums trying to figure out what the cause of this issue is but i cant seem to find a solid answer so im hoping someone here will know whats going on
Is this just one of those random crashes that i should ignore? Or is this a serious hardware/software issue?
