Windows 7: Screen turns black when playing games

07 Mar 2010   #11

Windows 7

"Burn"?... I just mounted the image and rebooted. I don't have a CD-ROM burner on my pc.

Then the test cannot be run. Why would you have a 7 PC with no burner? Next reseat the CPU and apply fresh TIM, smear it in a thin layer all over the heatspreader. You'll have to clean the cpu and heatsink first. That being done, add another fan to the case and update all your drivers, especially the nvidia chipset.

Windows 7

It's a home built computer and at the time I didn't see any significance in having a burner because I had never needed to use one in the past. I'm not going to buy a new fan because I can't afford to upgrade anything. My boyfriend will be buying the new CPU and also my computer is always blowing cold air out the side so I don't think that has anything to do with why my game is crashing. Also, My drivers are already up to date.

I'm not going to reseat the current CPU simply because it's going to be replaced this week anyway. I still disagree that the CPU would be the cause to the problem because it wouldn't make sense, niether would overheating. If it were over heating then it would beep and shut down, but when my screens go black the PC is still on, it's just unresponsive.

I ran chkdsk the way you said and it took a very long time. I got tired of waiting so I watched tv for an embarassibg amount of time and when I came back into my room my pc was on desktop and there was no information for me to copy and paste here.
