Well to start off I would just like to point out when it comes to locating an internal problem with a computer I'm 100% clueless. Now that that's out of the way the problem I have is when I'm playing any demanding game (I shouldn't really say any because I've only had it happen with like 3-4 games) my computer will up and freeze. Now I've seen problems similar to this on other sites where their computer would freeze and repeat sounds and then unfreeze after a little bit. But mine doesn't even do that. The screen freezes 100% you can't alt+tab out you can't ctrl+alt+del out, nothing. Along with this the sound also stops. There is no repeating sound or anything it's just silent (this includes if I'm listening to music from outside the game in the background).
The first time it happened I just kind of sat there seeing if it would unfreeze or something but it didn't. Then the next time I just kind of restarted it right away (due to the fact I was playing Battlefield 4 with friends and I wanted to get back on asap) so I didn't really wait to see if anything would happen. However the next time I waited... and waited... and waited. For a total of about 10-15 minutes to see if it would finally unfreeze or just blue screen crash. Nothing happened at all. So I decided to check some things out myself as well as look into the problem online which is where I saw people having similar problems but not really the same.
I did run the memory diagnostic thing that Windows has and I didn't get any errors with it. I have ran CCleaner as well to clear up registry's and stuff. And the more I think about it there can't really be too many options for where the problem lies otherwise I would think the computer would blue screen crash. One thing I can say for sure though is that this only started happening after the Omega drivers from AMD came out. About 3 days after. However I did do a repair on those and it is still happening. I would also like to point out that like I said before it's only on games that seem to be fairly demanding or aren't optimized too well (I guess). The only 4 that it has happened on is Battlefield 4, GTA IV, Triad Wars Beta (Sleeping Dogs mmo basically), and The Forest (An early access steam game, however this one is a bit different it has happened twice in this game but ONLY when I open up the menu in game (esc) and then click 'Exit to desktop' and not every time either; the others have all happened randomly during gameplay). I can play other games such as World Of Tanks, League of Legends, Mount & Blade: Warband, Red Orchestra 2 and various others with absolutely no issues though.
My computer Specs:
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3
Processor: AMD FX-6100 Six Core @ 3.3GHz
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7950
Ram: 16 Gigabytes (I'm not sure of the make)
Hard drive: 1 TB (Again not sure of the make however under local disk properties it says: WDC WD10EZEX-00RKKA0 ATA Device if that means anything)
So basically I'm wondering if there are tests I can run or if somebody has seen this issue before and already knows what the problem is and how to fix it. Also I'm attaching my DxDiag in the files just in case I missed something or that tells you more about the Ram/Hard drive. Thanks! DxDiag.txt 27.31KB 2 downloads
