Solved My screen blacks out and I need to restart pc after few min

May 25, 2015 at 05:42:55
Specs: Windows xp service pack 3, amd athlon 2x 255
Title pretty much says everything, I recently downloaded "TERA" which looked very interesting. After some minutes of game play screen turns black, PC is still running but I can't do anything, the only option is just to restart PC. Has anyone experienced something like this? I run amd athlon 2x 255 and pretty much a new GT 730 2gb GDDR5. 4gb ram 1066ghz. This is really frustrating, please help.

If you are still talking about the video card, look at these:

If you are talking about system overclocking and you have an off the shelf machine, you are out of luck, they are designed so you cannot do this except by using overclocking software which is very limited.

Minimum requirements are shown here: http://www.systemrequirementslab.co...

Looks like your GT 730 is the weak link. GT 7600 is absolute minimum required.

I hope that your joking because my graphics card is an absolute beast, I can play tera on max settings with 60fps. Please read, I got the gt 730 gddr5 version which is able to run things like Assassins creed black flag, crysis 3 and when overclocked witcher 3 without laggs. http://www.game-debate.com/hardware...
Meanwhile 7600gt is so far behind it http://www.game-debate.com/hardware...

"my graphics card is an absolute beast"

No, it's not. It's an entry level gaming card. However, I think phil22 is confusing the GT 730 with the much older 7300 GT. The GT 730 should have no problem handling that game. Do you have problems with other games too or just this one?

I find a graphics card for 70eur which can run witcher 3 a pretty beastly one. No I have no problems with others games, black ops 2, dark souls 2, crysis 2 and pretty much games like these are running on ultra without any laggs. Gpu reaches maximum of 55C heat during an ultra graphics gameplay.

I guess everyone's definition of Beastly are quite different. I run a GTX750Ti OC that runs all I need without blinking which I cannot say for all previous graphics cards I had. It should be a major step over yours but I would not call either one of them Beastly (even a small 'b'). I would personally reserve that term for a few of those graphics cards that are so expensive I would never consider spending that much.
I did find that a prior graphics card had hesitation issues on a rather simple game (LBreakout which is an exploding brick game) that should not tax graphics cards too heavily. A simple game when a lot of similar individual actions happening at the same time can stress a graphics card more than you realize. The end was overclocking that card by maybe 15% or so and it kept up much better.
In your case, even though it has GDDR5 memory it only has 64GB of it and similarly it has significantly less resources than a mid-range gaming graphics card, any of which can be overwhelmed at some point and the card has a minor epileptic fit. Updating the driver might help, as well as careful overclocking might help, but it is no substitute for a better card for your purposes.

I had never overclocked before, could I get a mini instruction? I had always through about overclocking but have no idea how much I can or should I go.
