Windows 7: Random Black Screen on New PC

Random Black Screen on New PC

I've just built my new PC. I was having some problems with Win7 installation because it kept black screening, but somehow got past it. But it now seems it moved onto my PC. It just randomly happens. I attempt to turn on my PC, but knowing I only have limited time (5-15 minutes until my monitor black screens, PC still running, so I have to restart my whole PC just to get it started again). Please help! I just built the PC yesterday, and installed Win7 yesterday also. But I tried it out today, and this happened.

Give us some more details on the issue and what you have tried to resolve it.

I would start with checking temps of the machine from boot until issues to see if you can rule that out
You could run furmark or similar to stress test the gfx and/or uninstall-reinstall gfx drivers or roll back to an older driver although if the machine was black screening during installation ie outside of windows environment then it wont be drivers and is more likely to be a hardware issue

Check event viewer/windows logs for any repeat errors or entries leading up to problem
May be worth manually getting a msinfo32 file from your machine and uploading to us to have a look we may be able to get some info from this
Start>msinfo32>enter then save and upload

Would I be able to RMA if this is a hardware issue?

If this was a hardware issue, what part do you expect has a hardware issue?

I would hazard a guess the machine is overheating or there is an issue with the gfx card but that's pure speculation until you do some testing
Check temps and gfx as per post #2 and report back what you find it could simply be an error in construction like the gfx card not seated properly

I don't think it was overheating. CPU: 41 degrees Celsius, GPU: 33 degrees Celsius

Should I do a reinstall of windows 7? Or will it only make matters worse? Because last time, it would just black screen randomly while trying to download.

Windows screen flashes, random grey screen & random black screen
This is driving me crazy. Right after I boot my laptop, the screen flashes randomly. Also something is stealing focus from what I am working on to something else. Then it likes to suddenly go to a grey screen. I have to manually reboot. If that is not enough, it like to just reboot.
