Screen turns black while playing games :( !!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, it's me again,

    Now since I passed those BSOD (thanks to ZigZag team, u guys are amazing!), I recently got bigger issue: whenever I played a game for 5-10 mins, the monitor turns black while the laptop still functioning (sounds, the processing light bar ...). If I close the lap down or put it to sleep, it will restore the screen. I can still watch movies, exploring website and other normal activities but whenever playin' games it turns black. I have tested the temp. When the comp in normal mode, the GPU will be 57 ~ 61 Census degree, when the last time it went off, the test recorded GPU's temp will be around 71~75 Census degree. Any ideas what happened? 

    My lap: Asus G73JH

    CPU: Intel Core i7 ~ 1.6 Ghz Turbo-boost ~ 2.8 Ghz

    RAM: 6GB

    HDD: 500GB Seagate SATA

    GPU: ATI Radeon Mobility 5870

    Windows: Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit

  • Please check if your graphic card supports the game. If so, please delete the driver from Device Manager, and install the latest one from ATI website.
