This issue appeared approximately one month now with this issue. I can run my computer for several hours with no issue. I can video chat, stream HD video, and do both at the same time. Whenever a game starts however, I get loss of video and have to restart my computer to get my display back. When I say "start a game," I can make it through launch, title screens, and loading screens. When the game actually begins to the "playing" portion is when the crash happens. It happens every time without fail. The three games it has happened on are League of Legends, Depth, and Witcher 3. I have run Kombustor through MSI Afterburner and this Graphics test runs without any issue. I have let it go for 20+ minutes. The Voltage reading from MSI Afterburner reads 867mV and when running Kombustor it jumps to ~1.1mV. While idling the CPU is running at 35 degrees C and GPU is at 28 degrees C. While running Kombustor, CPU goes up to ~73 degrees C and GPU ~62 degrees C after four minutes.
Things I have tried thus far:
Re-seating the Graphics Card
Re-seating the RAM
Swapping ports for both GPU and RAM
Wiping and reinstalling Graphics Drivers
RMA the GPU and received a new one
Raising fan speeds through MSI Afterburner
Swapping between DVI, VGA, and HDMI cables
System Specs:
OS: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz (8 CPUs), ~4.0GHz
Memory: 8192MB RAM (2: 4G HyperX)
Available OS Memory: 8140MB RAM
Page File: 4025MB used, 10259MB available
PSU: Corsair 750x
My PC is just about over a year old and this is my first custom build. I am at a loss as to where to go next. Any assistance with this would be most appreciated.
