Ok so I’ve been having problems with all the games that I play occasionally freezing then going to a black screen for about 5 – 10 seconds then they come back onto the game, this happens on all the games that I play, but some such as Skyrim, FarCry3 will not go back to the game after the black screen but rather crash to the desktop.
Because of this I know it’s not the games, Counter Strike GO will freeze when I have 120ish FPS and FarCry3 when I have about 40ish etc.
(when it freezes i can hear the sound looping if that helps)
This problem has persisted through multiple driver updates and beta drivers, I was thinking it could be something is the catalyst settings that is messing with the games, but I have no idea where to start because I’ve never used it.
Or dust on the card perhaps I haven’t opened my computer in ages lol.
