I was using my computer the other day when randomly the screen flashed and froze black with dull vertical lines. I left the PC for 15 mins and nothing happened so I decided to restart it.
After the windows logo I get a permanent black screen.
Intel i7-5820k @ 3.30 GHz
Sapphire HD 7850 2GB
Asrock Extreme3 X99 (socket 2011)
Thermal take Litepower 750W
Kingston 8GB - 1600
Samsung EVO 250 + 512 SSD
The problem started on windows 10, I have since tried a clean install of 10 & 7, no change except the computer force restarts after 10 seconds of black screen on windows 7 (after the logo still)
Installing the driver software causes the problem to start again from a fresh install, along with the automatic driver updates on windows 10.
I have tried multiple older version for my GPU driver and it's still the same.
I get small visual distortions all around the monitor without the GPU driver installed, coloured lines going up and down I can post an image if that would help.
Hoping this isn't a faulty GPU as I'm a poor uni student and the GPU is more than 2 years old.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
