So just an update!

I used the replacement CPU and it worked!

However there was an instance where I was just on Microsoft edge, and again I lost my display, but there was no VGA light on at all.
I rebooted my computer and everything was fine again. I touched my GPU to see if it was overheating or anything and it was barely warm.

Hopefully it was a one time thing

Has that ever happened to any of you?




Gratz on the CPU.

As for losing the display... could be the RAM or a RAM stick not seated well. I live in an old old house... sometimes just walking by the comp is enough to loosen a RAM stick enough to cause that.
Could also be a loose cable, etc.


/e You might also want to do that driver thing I mentioned way back. I don't think the driver is the cause, but I would do it anyhow, just to make sure you have a nice clean driver install. It was in post #10

the only time i lose visual is when i'm pushing overclocks on my gpu and running stress situations.

still could be an issue with your gpu/mobo/psu
if you've done all ghot asked about gpu, i'd more lean towards psu.

try keeping track of what, if anything, is stressed when this happens. unless it's a driver issue, i don't think using edge is stressing anything on gpu.

i also just thought that it might be worth doing a fresh windows install. then doing drivers after that.

if your cpu was bad, it could have corrupted a lot of system files while using them.

How would you suggest keeping track of "stress"

at this point, mostly just take mental note if you were doing anything gpu intensive.

What app do you guys use to check the temp of your CPU and GPU?
