Windows 10: Screen goes black at random times. Sometimes when idle.

  1.    11 May 2016 #1

    Screen goes black at random times. Sometimes when idle.


    PC works for a while after screen goes black and then it reboots on its own.

    I tried reinstalling GPU drivers but that didn't work (used that software that completely wipes them first). I suspect the GPU or PSU might be the culpit here. PSU is 730W Thermaltake Smart SE SPS-730M Modular 87%ef (has good reviews, brand name in EU) and the GPU is 7950 Sapphire.

    I posted the dump files as attachment using the DM Log Collector tool provided by site admins. If you need any other info please ask me. I'm a new user and this is my first post here

    I have so much stuff, not sure which one is genuine which one isn't. Is there a list somewhere?

    It is much better that you go through your programs and remove all illegal activated programs than that I try to provide a list, I can easily make mistakes.
