Is it the PSU or the GPU?

Hello,

I recently built a new computer and am having problem playing games on FULL mode. When i try to play games on FULL mode the screen freezes 3-5 minutes afterwards, only windowed mode works. I tried loading different drivers and that hasn't helped. Please help!

-My setup-

CPU:
AMD Phenom II x6 1090T
GPU:
Sapphire Radeon HD 5970 2GB OC Edition
MoBo:
ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AM3 AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX
Ram:
6 Gig 1600 G.Skill
PSU:
-EDIT- XFX 850w

Thanks!

Hi Joshua1187, and Welcome to BleepingComputer.

What operating system are you using, and is it a 64-bit or 32-bit system?

Did you use the CD that came with the Sapphire Radeon to load the drivers?

The following is an excerpt from an article regarding full screen mode at this website.

"Flash is a plugin for an application. Application generally do not have permissions to stop (or crash) the operating system. Only the kernel and drivers that run in what is called "ring 0" can stop or crash a system. The sensible conclusion is that you have a bug in operating system, hardware drivers or the hardware itself. Even though the Flash Player is the application that triggers the bug, it is still not something that is the Flash Players fault or something Adobe can fix."

So we can forget about the flash player being the culprit.

What are the temperatures of the CPU and graphics card looking like?

Hey Arachi,

Thanks for the response! I'm running Windows 7 64-bit. I did use the disk that came with card (which also crashed) but there was a new version on the ATI sight so I uninstalled v.10.8 and threw on 10.9 (I also tried v10.3 of which im currently on). It looks like my CPU saw about 51c yesterday as well as my GPU saw 71c (this is at the time of playing FFXIV in windowed mode).

Try disabling the Hardware Acceleration option in the flash player and see if that resolves this.

Im not exactly sure where to even find that.

-EDIT-

Isnt flashplayer a internet browser based program that wouldnt effect things like L4D2 and FFXIV?

-EDIT-

I just read my first message and noticed i didnt let you know what i was playing. Games like L4D2 and FFXIV in fullmode are what crashes.

No. Flash player is Adobe, and in this case it the full mode.

Look here.

You will need to open the Adobe flash player full mode. Look in the All Programs for it.
