So im still having issues. I did some research on my Graphic card web site and saw a post that looked similar to my issue, someone mentioned to revert back to a previous driver version. I tried to go to the version he said was last stable. It seemed to work for a little while. Had the longest term of no issues ive had yet. But of course the the black screen again. I was looking into my my MoBo specs and noticed something. It does say it supports AMD Phenom 2 processors, i pulled up a compatible list and it only mentions Phenom II x4 940 and 920. (http://www.gigabyte....p.aspx?pid=3447) Well i have a Phenom II x4 965. So my question, is this an issue and would it cause these problems ive had?

At the link click on the Tweaking Tools near the top middle of the page and then scroll down to the NVIDIA System Tools 6.06 option, read the info there fully first.
