    Blackscreen windows 10 after a few hours.. Any way to log?

    allegro16

      Hi,

       

      I have a R9 280X card that ran great for quite a while under Windows 8, 8.1 and now Windows 10.

      But lately i get blackscreens after a few hours and i have to reset the whole system with the reset button on the case.

       

      I replaced the PCI-E cables, went back to an earlier driver.. Still crashes..

       

      I'm thinking of replacing the card with a 380 or 390 IF it's indeed the card..

       

      Any way to check or search logs? The Windows log says only a kernel power issue (the reset)...

      Where should i look for the 280X?

       

      As it could be power related, memory or maybe even mainboard or processor?

       

      I need to know for sure before replacing anything..

       

      Thanks,

       

      Andre

       

      P.S:

      For troubleshooting, i replaced PCI-E cables, installed latest drivers instead of the Windows Update versions, disabled the Intel IGPU (onboard graphics), cleared and reset all BIOS data..

      Still crashes once a time. Especially when watching video..
