Windows 7: Random Black Screen while playing SWTOR, Watching YouTube Etc

Windows 7 Professional

Just thought I'd update. I've played the last two nights after moving my DVI cables around. No TDR's yet.

OK, feeling pretty good about some testing I've been doing. I switched the DVI cables around as explained in my previous post and I've had positive results.

If I do one of the following I experience a TDR:
  1. Enable SLI
  2. Plug a monitor into #3 DVI port
This tells me there is something wrong with that secondary GPU. So I think ultimately there is something wrong with my card.
