    Playing Game (HoN) Screens go Black, needs hard reset. Only gaming

    Hi People,

    I built my own PC and its been running great for 2 years.

    Using an SSD for OS and boot, and 1TB black drive for games and programs.

    I recently installed "Heroes of Newerth" for some giggles. I dont believe it is a highly intensive game on the GPU but i get some crazy crashes on my pc.

    Pretty much Ill be running HoN and Skype and both screens just go black, no sound or beeps, no error, nothing.

    My keyboard nad mouse lights are still on.

    My keyboard has multiple user levels, (4) each have different colour lights, but none of the user levels work, which makes me think the driver is not running on that, so maybe the pc has 'mostly' crashed.??

    Ive done a SMART test and all good
    Done a memory test (windows) and 100%, no errors found.

    Aside from this i dont know what the next step is.

    Usually i solve these on my own, but since there is no error I can't even google tog et something more sepcific!

    ideas anyone?

    Thanks for any advice or suggestions,

    Hi Archie, thanks for the response.

    There are a few errors but i dont know what ids important.

    Event Log 6008
    DistributedCOM 10016
    AppModel-Runtime 69

    Kernel-Power 41 Task (63)

    The distributed Com one was before it ccrashed this morning when i was not home!
    The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID {D63B10C5-BB46-4990-A94F-E40B9D520160}
    and APPID
    to the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container Unavailable SID (Unavailable). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.
    This occured when comp was doing nothing, just had firefox open, but no gaming. i was out of the house and i found it "black screened" when i got home after work!
