I just completed a brand new build and then installed Windows 8 64 bit on the brand new PC. It installed without problems and boots up ok. But while in windows, I am experiencing odd problesm that just should not be happening on a clean system. The screen will go black for a few moments on occasion, then the no video input message comes up, then after a few moments the screen will come back. Happens randomly. Also, the system will freeze - either for a few moments and then come back, or it will feeeze completely and i have to force power down with power switch. Also, I was online and trying to download and the system was stuttering - I could literally hear the hard drive make a stuttering noise. And my progress bar on screen would pause for split seconds at a time. Very strange.
I have not yet installed any software, but the Nivida software automaticaly installed when windows was setting up. Could it possibly be the Nvidia crap causing the issue or do you think maybe something else? COuld it be hardware related? Here are the specs of my new build:
Asus P8Z77-V Mobo
Intel i5 3570K unlocked CPU
Xigmatek Durin D982 heatsink/fan for CPU
Asus video card - GeForce GT 640 (2GB DDR3)
16 GB RAM, Crucial Ballistix, DDR3 1600 (2x8GB)
CoolerMaster Silent Pro M 850w PSU
Toshiba 500 GB HDD 7200RPM SATA 6.0 gb/s
Asus DVD optical drive, SATA
2 case fans
Any ideas would be appreciated!!
