Windows 7: Black Screen When Running FurMark and Certain Games

Black Screen When Running FurMark and Certain Games

Hey guys, I'm having black screen problem when I'm running certain games and FurMark @ 1080 FHD Preset. I'm using the MSI GTX 970 and I've been using it for about 6 months now. The black screen problem is always followed by an error message sound and I figured out the error messages. Sound and my application are still running perfectly fine so it should be the graphic card issue

For Furmark I got "Error Code 7, A TDR has been detected. The Application must close".
For my games, the first one is quite weird, it shows a warning "The 'NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970' device is not removeable and cannot be ejected or unplugged".
The other error is "Error Code 3, Unable to recover from a kernel exception. The Application must close."

I've tried clean re-install and update drivers but none of them worked.
Any information would be greatly appreciated guys

Cheers!

Check your GPU fans and temps, and make sure your GPU fans are running fast enough. It might be a heat issue, and that can mimic a lot of errors.

I have a similar problem with my GPU and have to run the fans around 60% manually to do any gaming. The automatic fan speed mechanism doesn't seem to work. I get weird error messages when it cuts out.

when running on battery, screen goes black,but laptop is still running

Once I unplug it and run it on the battery, once it gets down to about 87-88% or so, the screen just goes black, but doesn't shutdown and I'm unable to do anything except remove the battery and...

Black Screen When Running FurMark and Almost All Games
Hey guys. So, my first post here. I got a custom build about 1.5 months ago. It has got a GTX 950. The mistake I made was not testing some games on the damn thing sooner. Approx. 20 days ago, I installed Dying Light and on starting it, it played out the intro, got to the checkpoint screen and...

Many games crashing, no BSOD, Speccy+FurMark attached
Seems this is rather popular topic here. I cannot really remember when it started, but it will be more than 2 months now. Crash happens quite soon after game starts, usually not even like 10 minutes. It doesn't end up with BSOD, but sometimes whole system gets frozen and it's not even reacting to...
