|Recently my computer has been crashing randomly at any given moment to a black screen with no error message. The computer stays on, but there's no monitor display, and the sound goes screwy.|
Started happening when I launched SC2 after a long break, got to the login screen and the issue happened. It's been occurring on random instances when I attempt to play a game, and sometimes when I try to load youtube videos. It forces me to hard reboot, and sometimes it doesn't make it to the login screen of my computer without going black again.
Most times I'm able to browse the internet, use skype, and do all that without issue. It's a lot less prevalent in safe mode, but it has happened once or twice in there too. It doesn't seem to have a specific trigger, it just crashes whenever.
I've checked my comp temps and nothing seems to go above 40C, so I don't think it's an overheating issue.
I got a new video card and power supply a few months ago, and nothing was wrong up until just now. I'm using an ASUS Nvidia GeForce 550 TI overclocked, an AMD Phenom 9600 Quad Core, in a Gateway GT5676 computer with a Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500w Power Supply.
Considering I'm not getting any sort of error message, I'm not quite sure whether its a hardware or software problem, so I'm just going to put this in the Software subcategory. Sorry.
