  1. Hello to all!

    I have lately suffered a lot of crashes during a days worth of operation on my machine. But unlike the usual process theese dont seem to generate any error as the machine simply freezes. No real BSOD.

    Example:
    I sit and do my thing then both my 24" monitors loose signal at the same time and there is no way to get it back and even pressing power button will do nothing (unless held down for 4 secs ie shut down by force)

    What I have done so far:
    I have tested 2 identical graphic cards, same problem, I have run Memory diagnostics, come out clean, ive run Chkdsk and integrity, nothing. Full kaspersky 2010 scan as well as spydoctor and windows defender, nothing.

    I am running graphics driver 257.21

    What I am running:ยจ
    Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate
    Asus Rampage II Extreme Motherboard
    2 x 24" Samsung SyncMaster T240 Monitors LCD
    2 x 300GB WD3000HLFS-01G6U0 Velociraptors in Raid 0
    2 x 1TB WD1002FBYS-01A6B0 in Raid 0
    1 x Optical Drive Optiarc DVD RW AD-7170S
    Intel i7 920 C revision processor
    Geforce 285 GTX Graphics Card
    12 GB ram in 6 x modules of Corsair DDR3 10700 CM3X2G11600C8D
    Soundblaster XI-Fi Titanium Soundcard
    Thermaltake 1200 Watts Toughpower Power Plant

    My apologies if I done this wrong but its my first post on tech forums :) so be gentle
    Now im gonna go get religious and hope someone knows the answeres :p
