Hi all,


i'm having some issues with my computer. There's no pattern, but if I try to transfer a large amount of data or try to convert a video file to another format the computer freezes. There are no entrys in event viewer logs. Only that the computer was not shutdown correctly. Attached you can see a pic from the screen. I tried to figure this out, but no success.


Do you guys have any idea?




My configuration


Asus P8H67-V

Intel i5-3450 @ 3.10GHz

Onboard VGA Intel HD Graphics driver (Latest driver version)

Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

FYI - If we're looking for Event ID 41 errors (unexplained shutdowns), there's more info on that here:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2028504

While waiting for a reply, please monitor your temps with this free utility:  http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
This is critical, as it seems to me that it might be your video card overheating.

If the GPU doesn't show up in the temps, then we look at the other temps and try to see if there's cause for concern.


You can also open up the case and place a house fan (on high) close by - then test with transfering a large amount of data or try to convert a video file to another format
If it's heat, the screen problem may go away - or it just may take longer before the problems start.  But either way that'd be a sign that there's an overheating problem.
