Then suddenly today I get a kind of shutter of the same error, but windows keeps going and does not require a restart. This was odd because I've never had such a big error and have the computer actually keep working.
It was similar to the crashes prior, only it seemed more like those fake hacking scenes in movies where the screen would pixelize certain parts and become fuzzy and the sort, and the sound would hang up. It would kinda go as waves for about 2 minutes then all was fine.
All drivers are up to date, and I made sure all hardware was fully plugged in and nothing was visually wrong. I'm thinking this is a hardware issue. With my computer being 3 years old and its on time has been at the very least 10 hours a day.
Another interesting side affect is when I have my music playing sometimes I will get a bit of lag on my monitor and my music will skip backward a random amount of seconds (spotify). It would happen for about 20 seconds where the song would freeze jump back and continue playing.
My uneducated guess would be that the motherboard is failing? Considering that both sound and graphics are dying and causing crashes. I have an Asus M5A99X EVO R2.0. I am using an AMD 8350 and two R9 270x GPUs.
I do not know much about troubleshooting on windows, in fact I know exactly nothing since I never end up finding a solution for my crashes and eventually they fade. But since my computer is getting older, it might be time to replace some hardware.
I do not know what is wrong, but I would like anyone here to take a crack at my problem. If anyone needs any extra info, feel free to ask.
I stress tested everything with OCCT.
Cpu was fine, psu was fine. Motherboard was fine.
Then I went to the gpu 3d.
Stress tested gpu and started experiencing the same problems anout 20 seconds in. By 45 seconds my first graphics card crashedTest continued to run on the second one for 5 seconds then froze.
Confirmed it's the gpu. Any one else have any comments?
Oh and now apparently I fried the card.
Computer boots but after bios there is just a black screen on my monitors. Second gpu is a gray screen.
Tried several restarts. Looks like I completely killed it
