So I had this incident the other day while playing Star Wars the old republic. During gameplay everything froze (audio included) and my screen went black, my monitor displaying there was no signal. I had to forcibly hard power it down. Event viewer logs showed no error at the time aside from the sudden power loss when I shut it off. Since then games and programs in general have been very laggy for me or freeze. Firefox takes forever to switch between tabs, and flash has crashed a few times now. My most recent hardware changes were a new Hard drive and GPU a few months ago.

My first suspect would be the graphics card. Have you gone into our settings and switched from the graphics card to the default VGA chip on the motherboard?

How do things work in safe mode?
