Hey all,

 

Recently, My computer will turn on, I'll log in and then it will load up to my desktop. After a minute or two of loading everything up, the screen will turn black with a spinning cursor wheel signifying i's loading something. This will continue for about a minute then it will go back to the desktop and work like normal. My video card drivers are at the latest update so it's hopefully not that. The computer is relatively new (2 - 3 months). It started doing this a couple of weeks ago but I don't have a clue as to what may of triggered it.

 

Current System:
 

CPU: AMD FX-6350

GPU GTX 750 Ti

RAM: 8GB

 

 

Any ideas?

 

#EDIT: To add to the list of problems, my computer now restarts randomly (tried to stream a movie through UltraViolet but it loaded then restarted)

Random restarts are normally heat or power related.

 

What is your power supply?

My PSU is rated at 500W but I'm not sure about temperature. I have overclocked my GPU a little bit (core clock = +160 memory clock = +260) but the temperature only goes up when I'm playing games. The computer just restarted through streaming a film I redeemed from UltraViolet. I've also run a Windows Memory Diagnostic in case my RAM might be an issue but it's OK according to it.

If you over clocked and have issues the first step would be to restore to factory settings and see if the problem goes away.

 

The power supply is more than the recommended 300w, so it probably isn't your issue.
