I have this strange problem that at random times, independent of what I am doing at the moment the display on the screen will freeze and the computer will keep on working (Like a few minutes ago i was watching youtube and i could stil hear the audio but the screen froze) for few minutes until it too crashes.
Now, I had windows 7 ultimate 64 bit where the crashes were so frequent that it crashed several minutes after booted So i upgraded to windwos 10 64 bit education edition (Which i recieve for free my university) and for a while the problems appeared to stop. Now it has returned again, althought not so frequently but it still occures at least once in a day or two.
Also, worth noting that after it crashes and I force shut it down after the pc is booted again it still doesn't display anything on the screen. Only if I shut it down for at least a minute will the display return and this happend on both operating systems (7 ulti and 10)
I've checked temperatures of both GPU and CPU and they are all in the normal range. Also upgraded all drivers in the case that there is a rogue software that is causing the crashes.
I suspect that the problem is the GPU though currently have no idea how to confirm it.
mb : gigabyte h61m d2 b3
intel i3 3.3Ghz
AMD Radeon HD 6770
8 GB of ram
I am aware that the specs are quite old but it was working fine quite recently
