Hi I'm wondering if some one has any ideas for me? I have these specs (not sure what all is required here so ask for more and ill try to find it)
OS: Win 7 64 bit
video card: ASUS HD 7750
web browser: Google chrome version 22
RAM: 4 GB
So here's what happens, I am just browsing the web (minecraft forums usually) and all is well, but it seems some pages just seem to kill my display, it seems its just random ones, or else some if I stay on them too long they seem to do this also, what happens is my screen goes black for about 2 seconds then comes back with a message saying that my display drivers stopped responding but recovered, at first I wondered if it was YouTube videos that were in the page, but some of the pages that crash it don't have YouTube videos in them, I re installed Google chrome because i heard that it may have corrupted, didn't fix anything, I ran CCleaner and cleaned up my temp folder and history etc, didn't help, I've restarted, this seems to keep it away for maybe the day, or maybe i'm just not hitting the right page, I have checked for updates from the catalyst control center and it found none, i tried looking on the AMD website ( since i think that's who makes ASUS?) couldn't find the right one. I did a memory diagnoses that's on windows already and it came up with nothing , I think this checks RAM right? first I thought it might be my RAM, but it doesn't happen on Minecraft, a game I play, I can play for hours and it doesn't do it, since it uses RAM I assumed this should also cause it right?
I've never had this problem before, I had a smaller desktop before this but it would keep on overheating thus killing my previous video card, so I had to upgrade to a bigger shell (which of course they took all of my components out of the smaller one to the bigger shell, and replaced the PSU since it wasn't big enough apparently, so it shouldn't be my PSU either.) and to a newer video card (by the way this card is only about 3 months old), which is the one I have now, this is where the issue started, it did it I think a few days after first owning the new video card, then kinda disappeared for a few months but now its happening quite often (maybe 5 times a week.) at first I thought that maybe it was just the "minecraft forums" but i was also on the bell.ca website changing the T.V package on its interactive selecting page, and it crashed then also, then every 3 mins that i kept going back to that page, then I restarted and it seemed to fix it.
I'm sorry for the choppy information, im trying to get as much info out there as I can remember.
thanks for any tips you may have.
