- Haven't done any major changes lately

- Comp will freeze randomly. Has frozen in-game as well as out-of-game

- Went into BIOS and selected Default settings along with doing a Memory test. Passed.

- Used a can of air to spray out any dust.

- I've reseated mostly everything in the comp

- I don't have any external ports plugged in (EHDD, etc)

- The screen will go fuzzy and freeze or I'll get a BSOD saying Windows did a Physical Memory Dump I think


What's going on and how do I fix this?

First rule of asking a question like this is to list your specs.

Also check out Event Viewer and look at the Error/Warning sections. See if there's anything in there that might give you a hint. When I had massive freezing issues before, I was getting tons and tons of ATAPI errors. For me I just needed to change the HDD's SATA cable. Maybe it'll be something simple like that for you as well.

8GB RAM
i5-2500K
R9 270x


I may have figured out the culprit. I used Driver Sweeper and it detected that I still had drivers for my old card (6870) still installed so that may be why I was getting these freezes/BSODs/Phys Mem Dumps. I just don't know why its happening now and now back then when I swapped cards.

Currently reinstalling a fresh Catalyst. Will post again if I crash again.

Then you mostly get, "OMG, you need to upgrade. Your $600 PC can barely run notepad! You need this $2000 system minimum!"

Nope. Just got a BSOD telling me PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGE_AREA

Edit:
I should also add that ever since this problem started, I often have troubles getting the comp to boot. After a freeze, ai'll do a hard reset and 3 things can happen
- comp reboots successfully
- comp fan turns on but nothing happens. No beeps, nothing on monitor. Its like the fan is on and the comp is "idle" and never fully turns on
- comp turn on and turn off in a few seconds looping

Do you have integrated graphics or a different GPU to try? I would run memtest overnight just to rule out ram but I'm guessing the GPU is faulty.
