AMD 7800 PC freeze while gaming

Question asked by sebflo on Feb 16, 2018



Since I bought my new PC (in January 2014), I had problems with my GPU. While I was playing games for a few minutes and after that, my monitor shows no signal message, weird sound from headphones. Playing old games like C.S. 1.6 it's fine, but, playing games like Battlefield 1, 3 or 4, Smite, C.S. GO or Thief even with low graphics settings freeze my PC. The only thing that I can do after this event, is to shutdown the PC first and after that to open it again, restart it doesn't work. Unfortunately, none of the other posts found on the internet doesn't help me that's why I decided to open my thread.


What I have tried:

- Changing PSU

- Upgrading from HDD to SSD

- Stress test

- Update drivers

- Checked event viewer but nothing noticed

- Changing OS


What I remember is that there was a period of time when I've managed to stop my PC getting into this troubles with MSI Afterburner. The problem is that I don't remember the past settings...
