Windows 10: RED DOT CRASH After 5-10 minuets of gameplay - have to hard reset
Have you tried re-seating the graphics card and checking all your cables are good with firm connections? What size is your power supply? Does it have enough power to supply motherboard and graphics card and all attached drives and any USB devices?
I have re-seated my Graphics card 7 times already,
My PSU : Pulse switching power supply, model :PPS-750BR
I know where to find the voltage stuff in bios, but what do I change?
If you see my first post you can see voltage yourself via image(s)
Unfortunately the crash dose not produce a crash dump or BSOD, I have to hard reset
Although a bizarre phenomena has occurred, when I open dishounerd and play it for 2 minuets approx, I start to get flashing black screen/ flash or red dots, but now the game did not crash it kept on playing, this happen a further tow times each within a minuet interval of each other.
Its almost like the system was "fighting" to play the game and at the same to crash it.
I uploaded some footage of this, this seems to have become the norm now, somthing must be forcing drivers to crash but what...
Are you still there, you kind of went dark on me.
- Currently I have reseated the mother board fan with new thermal paste, after cleaning old one off with correct alcohol liquid.
These are the temps before playing
While playing - well what I could get from the first red dot flash
I still get the red dot crash,
I've added latest crash dumps.
I've been unavailable and only have limited time I can devote to this forum at the moment.
I've caught up with your posts now and thanks for sharing the videos. I've never seen anything like that before.
The only thing I spotted was a low 12V during play - I would have expected the voltage to keep closer to 12V. I wonder if your power supply is not as stable as it should be? Can you borrow one or do you have a spare one you can try out?
your PSU remark is intriguing,
At this point am adamant the graphics card its on its last dying breaths, so I ordered a new one, its gonna come next week between mon ~ wends
I'll try out the new card and if it works, problem solved. if not then its most likely the PSU, then I will replace that
Hopefully its the graphics card, I'd be meaning to upgrade anyway so its two robot birds with one stone.
Thank you for keeping up with me this long, I appreciate it.
1. Okay so I got my new graphics card, but Ii turns out my Psu only has a 1 6pin PCi-e
The graphics card MSI 770 OC Twin Frozr needs an 2x 8pin connections, the card comes with 2x 6pin to 8 pin adapters, So I have ordered a 6pin splitter for the adapters.
2. As Vic 40 has mentioned before I have yet to test the motherboard without my current graphics card attached, since the new cards here anyway, I decided to hold off on it
3. I have discovered a bizarre make shift solution to my problem, you see, when I put my PC sideways, and then boot it up and played smite, (I did this when i reapplied thermal paste) I noticed that my PC would not crash, not even once.
To further test this I played batman arkham asylum with no problems, I further played smite for 3 - 4 hours no problem, this was between last Friday to today. I did not believe it at first, and thought I just got lucky, No i was wrong my PC works in this position.
To further test this I put my PC up right and played smite agian, within 5mins I got a red dot flash and PC crashed.
This... is truly bizarre, I don't know wither to put this as a solution or not,
The splitter should come this week by firday at the latest and I find the real reason,
by process of elimination it has to be the PSU or Graphics card.
My Windows randomly keeps freezing up on me. I have read multiple threads on this forum but none of the solutions helped me. I've tried switching HDD's, reinstalling Windows 10. Tested my ram with Memtest for 8 hours, no issues. Tested...
Purchased refurbished Dell Optiplex 755 SFF came with Win7.
Performed update to Win10.
I only use this machine for watching tv in a spare room, so no important data.
No extra software / bloatware / antivirus / etc is installed on it.
I've been experiencing the same crash repeatedly now, while playing any game(it's happened so far in Rainbow Six Siege, Fallout 4 and Just Cause 3) my screen will randomly lock up and there's always a loud EEEEEEEEEEEEE sound until I shut...
Lately I have been getting hard lock ups on my desktop. I had no real software or hardware changes but I did notice the crashing was only happening during GTA 5. The locks up would never have an actual BSOD or error message just a hard freeze...
I'm new to the forums so thank you in advance to anyone who is willing to help me try and resolve my issues.
I recently built the PC I am currently experiencing this issue on. I have built several gaming PC's in the past, but never...
