PSU: Corsair TX650 W
GPU: MSI R9 270X
CPU: AMD Phenom II x6 1055T ( OC was removed)
RAM: 4GB 1600 MHZ DDR3 TeamGroup ELite
MotherBoard: Asus M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 ( IGPU AMD ATI 4290)
Storage: WD blue 1TB 7200 rpm SSD Evo 840 120 GB
Description of problem:
To clarify, computer crashes/freezes at random times. Just simply browsing the web or playing a game the computer crashes.
The crashes are represented by a fixed image( freezed image of what I was doing before ) and some weird noises( not looping or continuous sound) that sound like what an old 56k modem would do.
When this issue began:
About a month ago. Didn't change anything in terms of hardware.
Cause/Steps to recreate the issue:
I found a way to replicate the crashes that almost always occurs.
A Firefox tab and a Chrome tab are open at the same time, playing 1080p Youtube videos side by side.
After some time it will eventually crash.
What I've tried so far to resolve the issue:
So I made various test that helped me realize maybe the GPU was faulty:
Fresh Windows 10 / newest AMD drivers / HDD SSD = crash
Fresh Windows 10 / old AMD drivers / HDD SDD = crash
Fresh Windows 10 / newest AMD drivers / only SSD = crash
Fresh Windows 10 / newest AMD drivers / only HDD = crash
Fresh Windows 7 / newest AMD drivers / only SSD = crash
Linux distro ( manjaro) / proprietary drivers /only SSD = crash
Linux distro ( manjaro) / IGPU -ATI AMD 4290 /SSD HDD = OK
OCCT and AIDA64 stablity test during 1h both = OK
Memtest86= 0 errors so RAM is OK.
HDD and SDD= 0 errors using crystaldisckinfo and Windows tools.
SDD firmware was updated to the last.
Temperatures are OK using HWMonitor.
Fresh Windows 10 / IGPU -ATI AMD 4290 /SSD HDD = for about 1h and crash as not occurred.
Did not tested PSU, but the computer didn't crash during stress tests.
Is there anything else I can test/do to make sure it's a GPU problem?
