So for a few weeks now, my computer screen keeps randomly going blank to different colours like brown, green, blue and black. But my computer doesn't actually shut down, the screen goes blank and I will have to restart my PC to fix it, also If I'm listening to music while it happens, it turns into a loud buzzing.
Has this happened to anyone else? How do I fix it? :frown:

EDIT: I've made sure all the plugs are connected properly, That everything is inserted all the way.
I've updated my PC to Windows 8.1 and any updates were available but this blank screen has been happening before the updates so I'm not sure :frown:

I was having bluescreen issues a couple of days ago because of my sound driver. Try downgrading to another version. Is it the latest realtek?

I remember updating my GPU drivers for litecoin mining, I don't know though :/

It sounds like your PC is having issues when it goes to sleep (when the screen goes black) and won't wake up back up. A possible fix is to go to your power options, edit your current plan and set "turn off display" to 'never' and "put computer to sleep" to 'never'.

i'm also having this issue but I believe its because I need a new PSU with higher voltage out-puts as my new Graphics card needs 600w and I only have 500.... Your problem might be similar,check it out :smile:

That's not the problem because I already have it set to never sleep.

I have a 650watt PSU which is enough.

But it hasn't happened in a few days. So I'm thinking it's fixed :smile:

Okay ^,^
I want to do that but I can't find a Activator that works xD
So I think it was a driver issue :rolleyes:
If it's activation key you need, if you're nice, you could ask Tabuu :smile:

Did you get yours from him? and does it work :tongue:
Yes I did, and I had an activation thing on my desktop for months, and it got rid of it and is now activated.
