Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've had a black screen issue for about 4 months now. It is consistent in that it happens more frequently when im playing games,but it is not only when i play games. The game will drasticly drop framerate as if cpu load was maxed 10-15fps then will freese with picture durring this time I will still be able to hear sound including discord, then finally black scrren no sound monitors on but black with computer still running and will continue to run until hard reset. Sometimes willnot black screen will just freese with audio.

All temps seem consistently normal and i have plenty of airflow over motherboard.
