    I've just got a new pc, but I already have issues. When I play a game my pc freezes after a while, sometimes after an hour, sometimes after 20mins these times vary. I've checked my videocard drivers and they are up to date, when a game freezes I usually see vertical stripes (black and grey) my first thought was that my monitor is broken, so I tried it on my tv and it gave the same result (only a black screen and no stripes)

    I still got a warranty on the pc so if it's something difficult I'll bring it back, just curious to know if someone knows what this is

    Videocard .. radeon hd 6900 series.. I've called the store and it's probably a defect in the videocard they say.. so I'll bring it back. Thread can be closed
