Fake crash

  1. Sometimes I will be doing something and then my computer will lock up and I can't click anything. The screen then goes black (the monitor turns off). Then when I move the mouse the computer comes back on but what ever I was doing is distorted and my start menu has all these black lines on it. Video drivers are up to date.

    Sounds like either an overheating problem (CPU/GPU) or a power supply issue. Have you opened your computer recently and blown out the dust? If not, get your can o air and clean that puppy out. Dust can cause heat build up.
