Alienware 17 R4 2017 review
So I've had this issue with my computer for a while. for a couple of months, my computer would freeze when I was playing intensive games with whatever was on the screen last staying there. The computer would be unresponsive and I'd have to force shutdown.
It first happened when i started playing DayZ SA but then it started happening when I watched youtube videos @1080p full screen, and other games.
After searching many threads, I decided to replace my mobo, ram, and psu as those seemed very likely to have been causing the trouble. installed them correctly.
After installing the new hardware, my computer now restarts instead of simply freezing... progress I guess. Now i've finally given up and i'm asking for help.
Before you ask, my temps don't get too high. All of the fans are working properly. I've tried different video drivers and had the issue with all of them.
Windows 8.1 mobo: GA-78LMT-USB3 CPU: AMD-FX(tm)-8350 Eight-Core Processor (8 CPUs), ~4.0GHz Memory: 8192MB GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series PSU: Corsair 650W SSD: ADATA SX900 256 GB
If anyone has suggestions, please help
With my previous hardware, i wouldn't never get anything to view in the event viewer but now it does give me something other than the computer recovered from an unexpected shutdown.
