  1. I haven't switched power supplies but im gonna out the gpu in the other system for a few minuets with the sketchy power supply and see what happens. This is also my only video card i have at the moment so i cant test another and my ryzen cpu does not have integrated graphics.
  2. Hello everybody, i have had a mix of problems slowly getting worse with my pc and i think it could be down to either a bad motherboard or GPU. The problems first started during gaming where the computer would randomly freeze and throw up colored vertical lines on the screen (see pictures below) after leaving the pc like this for a couple of minuets both my screens would go black and start flickering between a black screen and the monitors having no input signal. Occasionally my desktop would flash on screen for a few seconds but i didn't have enough time to see if it was usable. A hard reset would get the pc back to normal and i could sit editing, producing music or just on the desktop for as long as i wanted. I haven't managed to reproduce these crashes on my secondary monitor which at first made me think it was a problem with my display. I have also managed to reproduce these crashes while in the BIOS but every time this happens the lines come up on my secondary display instead of the primary one it does normally. I've already checked event viewer and most logs say "Warning - Display - Display driver amdkmdap has stopped responding and successfully recovered." A little while after this i started noticing problems with booting my pc. At first the pc would have all fins spinning, lights working and keyboard and mouse on, the pc would post and then show the windows boot animation and then freeze on a black screen after that. Sometimes the keyboard and mouse would stay lit up and others they would go off before the windows boot animation like normal but stay off when frozen. It would normally take me 2 or 3 attempts to boot to windows. Now i have the problem where sometimes the pc wont post, all fans spin, all lights light up inside the pc and there are no beep post codes. The connected monitor(s) would just get an input signal of a black screen. The keyboard and mouse dont light up in this situation normally. Sometimes the pc will post and then blackscreen directly after the post screen. Once again everything inside the pc works correctly and sometimes the keyboard and mouse will light up and other times not. Not sure weather this could be a bad gpu, cpu or mobo. THINGS I HAVE TRIED: Clean installing gpu drivers Cleaning out my system Reseating the gpu Using a different power connecter (but on same cable) for my gpu Trying different HDMI cables Checking event viewer logs Lines pictures: Lines after in-game crash: Lines in BIOS: SYSTEM SPECS: CPU: Ryzen 5 2600 (No OC) GPU: MSI Radeon R7 370 GAMING 4G (No OC) MOTHERBOARD: ASUS TUF B450 GAMING PLUS RAM: (2x8GB) G.SKILL RIPJAWS V 2133MHz PSU: EVGA 750 GQ DISPLAYS: 2x 1080P IPS panels 1x 24" ASUS VC239 & 1x HP 27w 27" display I do have another AMD A6 based pc that i can carry out tests on but it does have a sketchy psu as well and no hard drive as im using it for storage in this machine so all tests will have to be carried out in a live environment.
  3. Ok so another problem has come up which I feel could help towards this. When I boot my pc up now with the "bad" display plugged in, the pc will post and after the post screen the screen will go black and sit there. Haven't tested it for long to see if it stays like that. Any ideas?
  4. Right ive disconnected my main monitor and ran the game on just the second one and i noticed that my frame rate was significantly higher that what it was when playing on my main. I played on the secondary display for around an hour and a half and nothing happened and no lockups. I plugged in my main one again to compare frame rates and i was getting around 50 compared to the 70 on the secondary screen. I am gonna plug my main back in and try to crash the game again as i now feel this could be a problem with the monitior.
  5. Ive just taken the card out the system and reinstalled it with a different power cable and i have now also disconnect my 2nd display, although the lines have output on both before. Any tests you can suggest? im gonna fire up sgw3 and try and crash it as now its starting to happen more often.
  6. I have not had the GPU out for a while, however ive re installed it a few times over its life and its all firmly connected. It is an old gpu tho so would not be surprised it its gonna die. Ill reinstall and reconnect it now and see what happens. The problem is slowly becoming easier to reproduce and is happing more often so ill update you soon.
  7. I have tried different HDMI cables and this has not made a difference. Do you still think this is a mobo issue as i dont wanna RMA my board and be without one for ages as Ebuyer has some bad RMA reviews in the uk
  8. When this happened i had a different cable inserted into the GPU. My cpu does not have any integrated graphics so i cant use the onboard port. My gpu only has one hdmi port and i dont have any display port cables.
  9. I have an ASUS TUF B450 GAMING PLUS board which has recently had a number of issues and is unusable. Its still under warranty and i cant find a single phone number or form to fill in online for the uk. Every form ive been directed to is for the US. Every number i phoned either does not exist or is for different departments that wont help me.
  10. Ive been playing the game again and managed to reproduce and get a picture of the lines: At first i thought it was a driver but then i went into the bios to flash an update to see if that would fix it and after clicking around in a few menus the system froze again and output these lines on my second display:
  11. Will do. I did choose the clean install option when i updated my amd drivers but ddu might do a better job. I also looked into the event viewer and around the time of the issue and a lot of system log warnings were present at the time saying my graphics drivers stopped working and "recovered" I also ran cinebench to stress the cpu and no issues and a great score on all and single core performance. Heres the event viewer screen grab if u can make anything out of it. In the system logs section: In the application logs section:
  12. Only in game. Never experienced it in any other games except this one but then again i haven't played any other games while playing this. The only other issue was the random cs BSOD. The Pc can sit on the desktop for as long as you like.
  13. I have never overclocked any of the parts in my system. they are all still running at stock speeds. Any tests i can do to test to see if its the cpu or mobo? Im hoping its not cpu or mobo because im upgrading the gpu soon.
  14. The game itself crashes i think because sometimes audio continues in the background for a little and sometimes it just stops, whenever my screen flashes to my desktop the game is not open so id imagine the game crashes and closes itself when this happens The monitor the game outputs to is less than 2 months old as well
  15. Hello everybody, I have been playing a lot of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 recently and have been experiencing some issues that i think are GPU related and need help with asap. I will be playing through the game normally and randomly and suddenly my screen will output a series of vertical lines that are of similar color of the last visible frame on screen. The background also goes blank but is normally is a slightly darker shade of the color that the vertical lines are. After this my screen will go black after a while and both my connected monitors will keep flashing from a blank black screen and then loose video signal and then go back to black. Sometimes my desktop and the Windows UI does flash on screen sometimes but im not sure if windows is usable. Although i haven't been able to capture the lines on video and if you want i can get a photo when it next happens, i have got the stage afterwards when the monitors start flashing on camera. (VIDEO HERE AND AT BOTTOM OF POST) A hard reset will get me out of the locked up state and back into windows. I have not noticed this in any other games as i haven't really played any during the time of this but when playing csgo a day before this i did get my first BSOD with the stop code saying something to do with watchdog but i feel this BSOD is unrelated to this issue as windows itself does not crash. EDIT: i reproduced and got a picture of the lines after the game crashes. This happened in 2 different situations: Lines after game crash: I also went into the BIOS to flash an update to see if it would fix the issue. After clicking a couple of times in the menus i got these set of lines and the system froze SOLUTIONS I HAVE TRIED: Cleaning out my system of dust. Doing a clean install of the graphics drivers. SYSTEM SPECS: GPU: MSI AMD Radeon R7 370 GAMING 4G CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 RAM: (2x4GB) G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4 2133MHz MOBO: ASUS TUF B450-PLUS GAMING DISPLAYS: 2 1080p 60Hz Panels. One Asus 23 inch and one HP 27 inch ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The game is installed on an old hard drive which is a bad drive as it used to be my main boot drive but the system would randomly restart. This issue was fixed ages ago by swapping my boot drive. However, i dont think an issue like this would occur because of a bad drive. VIdeo link:
