Did you reapply thermal paste after you pulled out your fan and apu?

No I did not apply any after... I didn't see much on there to begin with. Looked like dust to me.

I'm guessing I should find some and see if it will work. Do you think it's likely the issue?

It was acting up just the same before I opened it up

And I accidently deleted my original post. 

I'll try that and be back.

You need to clean the fan surface where it sits on the APU with alcohol (80%) using a non-static cloth. I use coffee filters they work best. Be sure to remove all of the dust and old paste from the fan. You need to be careful and do the same for the APU. Place a pea size glob of thermal paste in the middle of the apu. Place your fan back in place.

After you have done this download Core Temp so you can monitor the CPU temperature. It will take a couple of days for the paste to cure.

Don't try anything crazy like a gaming binge that last for days for a couple of days. I leave Core Temp up and running on my system. For sure during the summer.

Thanks for the advice and instructions. I will do just that. I'll leave it off for now until I buy some paste.

Thanks again

So I did the thermal paste thing and left it alone for a little bit. 

Tried using it and it's still happening. Screen flickers for a couple of seconds and then turns off - then I have to turn the monitor off and on to get the screen back. Stays on for about two seconds. 

I can try it again tomorrow after leaving the paste to sit a little bit. 

 

Here's my original message for anyone just seeing this (accidently deleted it as the screen was turning off).

Specs:

Gigabyte GA-F2A75M-D3H

AMD A8-5600K

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

not sure of the on board graphics on it right at this moment but I just installed a new Radeon HD 6450 thinking it might fix the problem, so far it's the same.

 

Issue: One day I turned it on and as soon as I was browsing the screen froze for a moment then went black. There was an error message about display driver failing (forget exactly. It hasn't come up again).

Now it keeps turning off. Flickers for a second then switches off. Monitor stays on but the screen is black. 

I re-installed windows and it worked fine for a whole day and evening, no problems but it's back again.

Ok, well if your system is up long enough a couple of things to ask would be

1) What version of .net farmework s/b 4.5

2) What version of ccc are you trying to use. I would try 13.1

 

If either is not true then unistall ccc via control panel. Install 4.5 .net. Reboot and then install 13.1.

I hope it is not your APU and please download Core Temp to get a good idea what temperature the APU is running at.

Just a thought. You said turnning your monitor off and back on fixed the problem? Have you tried a different monitor? I ask because turnning your monitor off and on shouldn't affect your O.S. or drivers.
