Im usin my computer.
well its not a bluescreen, the screen will just randomly for no reason at all cover itself in blue pixels. (1920x1200)res
can still move the mouse which is like a huge square of blue dots as it moves through the other blue dots/lines. its really hard to explain
It will allso sometimes just go to a black screen.. then return to normal, but usually it screwes up really bad.
anyway. this will happen. then it will go to a black screen and require a restart ( im guessing its trying to reboot the graphics. )
On restart. the gigabyte loading screen ( first thing i see ) will have random white lines through the orange letter S etc.
on loading DOS(format(grey words/black backround) like computer information (all prior to windows) will be very messed up. its still there but you cant read anything. big grey squares and it just looks horrible. it will just go black ( im guessing its loading windows then ) cz u get the login sound minutes later but screen is still black.
iv cleaned out the graphics card. updated drivers. reformatted windows. i dont get bluescreen error although recently, i was having some bluescreen issues related to memory ( also random/running VLC ).
i really dont know whats wrong. it might happen 5 times in a day. it might not happen at all.
my computer will be 4 years old in march. the only thing iv added is harddrive.
There are no error messages.
to fix this second reboot. i have to switch it off for about 5 minutes and just wait. then itl work fine from like 1/2 hour - 30+ hours.
my powersupply is stable (checked all voltages with everest ultimate edition).
my graphics card runs hot (60+deg celcius). its a standard xfx 8800gts 320mb.
What should i do? are there any tests i can do on my gcard to see if something has failed?. trying it in another computer is differcult since i dont have another pci-E capable motherboard, and the issue is also random.
Another issue i had recently was. Windows Indexing Service would run randomly. using all memory, making my computer freeze/unusable for 30seconds-5minutes at a time. i disabled the service.
http://img340.images...290/indexer.jpg is a picture of that issue. ( look at the resource montior and random spikes in system memory.
http://img230.images...memorymahem.jpg is another picture i just cant explain.
i cant get a picture of the blue pixels because my computer crashes.
#### THE QUESTION ####
Why does my computer go into blue pixels/crashing/need restart/need break/need another restart?
Why does SearchProtocolHost.exe ( windows search indexer ) crash my computer/spike my memory?
thanks heaps. Leon. Feel free to ask me any questions.
