My screen will go black then when it comes back either my background wallpaper will be gone or the resolution has been changed.  If I leave the PC and come back a few hours later a lot of the time the resolution will be set very very low. When I watch the resource monitor window I'll notice my Disk graph going out of control with spikes.  I don't know if I have something installed on my computer that's causing all of this.

 

 

Things I've tried:

updated everything on windows ran Malware B which found 100 different issues.  
updated all important updates on Win 7
Nvidia control panel 3d settings changed Set PhysX config to GPU instead of auto-select

Also I cannot change my wallpaper image

GPU:GeForce GTX 460  Driver 353.62

CPU: Intel® Core™2 Quad CPU Q6700 @2.66GHz

Memory 4.00 GB RAM (3/50 GB usable)
OS: Windows 7 Pro 32bit

Running a dual monitor setup

 

If someone could help me out with this.

I think your GPU may be getting unstable. Try adding more voltage in MSI Afterburner or downclocking it.

Ok I set it to 1k volt.  It says 405 MHz/1900Mhz on the left  and in the middle where I can adjust it says Core Clock 763Mhz 1900Mhz Memory Clock.  I haven't changed any of that yet.

I would simply have uninstalled the display drivers...then reinstalled same.  Graphics drivers could be damaged.

 

I've seen  this message before and don't believe it indicative of a major problem and would not fool with the motherboard settings.

If the driver was uninstalled and another was installed after restarting the computer the driver would be a native Windows driver.  I would suggest going to the GeForce website and downloading the driver from there.

 

If the problems persist boot into Safe Mode with networking (this will allow you to go online) and see if the problem persists there.  If it doesn't, then your problem is with the driver.

Yes I uninstalled the GeForce Driver and windows auto installed an older version Release date 2/10/2015 Version 347.52 GeForce Game Ready Driver.  Everything seems to be running ok at the moment.  I'm afraid to install the latest driver with everything going smoothly at the moment.  Should I even install the latest driver?

This message normally happens when a GPU is not stable or clocked too high. It can be drivers, but I would have thought he would have done that first. Also, MSI Afterburner is not BIOS settings.

PercyControl posted that they reinstalled the older driver and that the computer is now operating properly.  Obviously this is not related to the GPU itself, but its driver.

In answer to your question... if it ain't broke, don't fix it. :grinner:

Welp it just happened again.  I had a few things running and i went to check the date in the task bar.  Black screen and resolution went small again. So I guess I'll install the latest driver and put the voltage to 1k.  It was running smoothly for awhile then poof. Also I still wasn't able to change my wallpaper just a black screen.

Edit: Just noticed that only 1 screens resolution went smaller and the other 1 is fine.  Would it hurt to try different outputs on my GPU?  I think i have 2 DVI and 1 mini HDMI.

I know what I know. Being an almost professional bencher/overclocker, I know instability and stability. 

 

And yeah Percy, sounds good.

Let's try something suggested earlier.

 

Boot into Safe Mode with Networking to see if the problem persists there.

 

Safe Mode uses a limited number of applications and drivers.  The graphics driver used there is a native Windows graphics driver, not the graphics driver from GeForce.  The resolution will be poor, but if this problem is driver related it should work.  If the problem doesn't persist in Safe Mode your problem is with the driver.
