  1. While playing a game my screen will randomly go black, sound will cut out. ( No Signal ) will be displayed on my monitor and no power is fed to my keyboard or mouse or my ethernet input ( no green light ) while this happens until I restart my pc via power button. bear with me im not very tech savvy either :\ Anything information is welcomed! :confused:

    Is the computer a laptop or a desktop computer? It may be caused by a failing power supply if you have a desktop computer

    Remove Avast and try gaming again. Windows 8 has Windows Defender built in and Avast might be "fighting" with it

    Windows defender is disabled though :eek:
    Also my voltages seem odd http://prntscr.com/6dmox0
    And them "fighting" can cause what I described? o.o

    -5volts is not used, and if your 12v was 8v as listed your computer wouldn't boot at all, so what I said once again is do not pay attention to this voltage list... It is false and wrong. If you can't start Windows Defender, make sure Avast is truly and completely uninstalled
