Here's the problem. The system is new, less than 2 weeks old. I keep having these intermittent video errors ONLY while playing games. If I'm watching Netflix, Hulu or YouTube, surfing the net, etc. I experience no problems. Only while playing a game does this problem crop up and it DOES NOT happen all the time. I'll start up a game and the video completely cuts out. NO VIDEO at all, I can hear the game running, if I move the mouse around and happen to mouse over a selectable item I can HEAR the "click" sound, etc but there's NO VIDEO. Also, I am getting NO video error messages, no codes to look up, nothing to indicate there's a problem. Now, if I hit the restart button on the case then open the game again... problem resolved, the game will run without issues. Again, I reiterate, this DOES NOT happen all the time. It's very frustrating. I've removed and reinstalled the current video driver a couple of times, made NO adjustments to the driver through the interface at all. But I'm still getting this odd error on occasion. A friend of mine (who is a lot more tech-savvy than I) says there MAY be a problem with the card itself. I do have time to return and replace it, but that time is running out. Any ideas?
