    Random freezes ( black screens ).


    Hello everyone! I'm having problems with my newly built computer, i build this badboy 3 days ago but it has lots and lots of problems :/. Whenever i play a video game it crashes after around 10 minutes of gameplay, i can hear the speakers buzzing when it crashes and it won't throw me any error ( nor am i getting a BSOD ). I checked the event logs but my knowledge has failed me! Could somebody please, please help me out here?! Kindly appreciated!

    Please see the attachment for the LOG files.

    Thank you!

    Also! : System specs :

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!
    Also, with the debut of Win10, we are extremely busy with it.

    Do your still need help with this problem?
    I will be notified if you reply to this topic and will respond within 48 hours.

    Even though you're not reporting BSOD's, Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum): Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions Please use Option 1 as it provides Event Viewer logs.

    I downgraded to windows 7 and i found out that my Wireless adapter caused these crashes. Now i can play video games WITH my wireless adapter for some reason. It just stopped, somehow. I'll be upgrading back to Windows 8.1 soon because i can't stand the boot time of windows 7. Thank you for wanting to help me, i appreciate it.
