PC hangs at high gpu load

Hey guys,

My PC hangs after I load my gpu for a while. For example, if I'm gaming or running a blend torture test with prime 95 my entire pc freezes and there's no input (mouse/keyboard doesn't work) or output (sound). The only fix is a hard reset. I've attached two administrative event logs and a pic of my device manager. All my drivers are up to date

Here are my specs

Hope you guys can help, without being able to game buying this pc was counter productive Silly

The latest bios and drivers from the maker's site......mobo and gpu.

Next is to block msft from feeding you with drivers they think are better.....use google.

Test.....if it still fails.....test with the side panel off.

It's not temp

Hey, thanks for the reply. It's not a temp thing as the temperatures remain under 75, checked with HW monitor, and I've tried all the different drivers for my gpu. Don't know how to flash bios

75C is only what the sensors read.

In reply to: It's not temp

What if some component that has no sensor is complaining? As to the flash BIOS, follow the maker's instructions. That's what I do and never lost a board.

Did you complete the cover off test?

Yes to both and Still failed

Flashed the new bios and it stills hangs, also still hangs with the cover off

I only know what you tell.

The parts list looks newish. Time to call the supplier and start asking what goes back.

Unless told I think this is new and has always failed.
