Wierd Video issue?
« on: September 23, 2019, 03:34:06 AM »
A while back my computer video would occasionally turn off for a number of seconds then start back up. There was also some hard crashes in windows. I found a fix for the windows crash. About the same time as that I also had Avast update. After I fixed the crash the video shutdown and startup stopped. So I thought that was it.

Today I updated Avast, couple hours later my Video shut down then started back up.

Well thanks to posting here the day the last video problem opccured I know how long ago it was. Happened again last night. Rare but if it happens when gaming I have to reboot the computer. At least the one time it happened when I was gaming.

Happened today.

Doing this so I can keep track of time.

I did notice something. Couple seconds before it went black I was scrolling down through a forum when the page lagged. It's not the Browser. I recently changed from Chrome to Opera

Updated Video drivers today as well. This is the 3rd new update since this started.

Well got whammied again.


Edit: It happened right when loading a video on steam and I recall videos being involved before. So I updated Flash. Here's crossing my fingers.

Failed. Video crashed again. Video was playing but I had updated it. Only thing I know is it started happening on a major windows update. 18 I think, can't do 19 because of my cpu.

Well it seems to be the windows update, I think. I figured it must be something that builds up. So every weekend I shut down my pc, wait 10s, then start it back up. No video crash since December 1st.

I would suggest that instead of a shut down and start, you do a Restart.

Started doing that as of today, if nothing changes will make it easier on me by a lil bit.

Nope. The video went down and that was for using reboots instead of my shutdown, wait, startup method. It also fits in with the timeframe of when I had constant uptime on my pc.

Welp, since my last post I haven't had the wierd issue.

I did find a shortcut once I saw some info on a tech video on youtube. Since my pc doesn't use the max amount of watts my power supply can send a charge remains active in the board. So I shutdown and flip the power switch, since something builds up in the ram to cause the error I need to blank it that way.

Got a massive amount easier once I switched my OS drive from HD to SSD (Finally!)
