  1. PC stops functioning when full screened


    I built this PC earlier this year and it has been running beautifully up until this past weekend. Occasionally when full screened (occurred on Twitch, and Spectrum live tv) my PC stops responding to almost everything. The video freezes and I can minimize windows but cant bring them back to front. I can close programs, but the icon on the taskbar is still highlighted. I cant right click on the task bar. None of the buttons on the task bar work. Clicking on reset or shutdown "closes" all programs, and nothing more, among other issues.

    Any idea what can be causing it? Any help would be greatly appreciated PC stops functioning when full screened :)

  2. PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds

    Blue screen and stop code

    Hi
    Jeferis,

    There are a lot of factors for this matter to occur. To isolate the issue, we have some questions for you:


    • What activity have you done to
      trigger the NTFS and FAT FILE SYS loop?

    • were there any error messages?

    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    It is possible that the
    Boot
    Sequence were corrupted by the previous activity which
    triggered the Blue Screen Error and the loop. We recommend that you perform these
    suggested troubleshooting
    and see if there are any changes:

    Startup Repair.


    To access the
    Startup Repair Screen, turn off the
    PC 3-4 times(force shutdown),
    while on the Blue screen Error. This will route you to the
    Startup repair screen:

    Advanced Boot Options > click Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Command Prompt

    and run the following command:

    Run SFC Scan:  

    SFC
    will
    scan
    and
    run
    an
    automatic repair
    to any
    corrupted system files
    that it will detect. We suggest that you perform it twice. To run an
    SFC scan, follow these steps:  


    • Run
      Command Prompt as Administrator.  

    • Type
      sfc /scannow
      and hit
      Enter.   

    Boot Record:

    This will fix the corruptions on
    boot records or boot
    sequence. To run this command, follow these steps:


    • Run
      Command Prompt as Administrator.

    • Type the following command:  

      • Bootrec /fixMBR  

      • Bootrec /fixBoot

      • Bootrec /rebuildBCD

    Update us on how it goes.

    Regards.
