Yesterday I started experiencing video driver crashes while playing games. Now today, I can't boot into the bios randomly. Sometimes it let's me into the OS, but it'll freeze up later, or the disply will turn off and monitor gives the "no cable found" pop up. When I was in the OS after the crashes started happening, I ran a chkdsk /f on c:, which is the SSD and the drive my OS is installed on. There's no OS on the HDD. The chkdsk failed to complete due to the display crash again. Booting to CD worked, but it crashed mid install. I unplugged the SSD and was able to get into the bios, but it crashed when it started loading the windows cd. I also reseated all 3 memory sticks.

 

 

Not sure what else I can do anymore and help is greatly appreciated.

 

 

Thanks,

-Andrick

Thank you for your reply hamluis,

 

I was not able to stay (or sometimes even boot) in my OS long enough to download the utilities you suggested before experiencing another crash.

I'd remove the hardware piece by piece then restarting until it stops.... starting with the video card.

 

I suspect the drivers have corrupted or it has blown partially.

Are you overclocking the system?

 

Check the system for possible overheating?

 

Check the PSU by trying it in another system?

 

Run the extended diagnostic on the hard drive (not the SSD)?

 

Test the RAM modules individually and collectively, using Memtest 86+?

 

Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool - http://www.memtest.org/#downiso

 

Memtest86+ Guide-How To's - Overclockers Forums - http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=409152

 

Any number of items can result in system problems...I try to eliminate the most obvious before jumping to conclusions.

I would recommend doing the same exact thing.
