My computer is less than 3 years old but I have been constantly getting this problem. I would be running a program and suddenly the display would freeze and i would have to restart the computer. Ctrl + alt + del had no effect. Upon restarting, the system would boot up but there would be no display or beeps. If i left it alone for months at a time it would start normally again, but sometimes I will get this line: Dram timing set too tight so reload. I have removed the video card and put it back in again but to no avail. Also I have tried removing both my rams but the problem still persists. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I do not want to wait for months to start my pc up again.

Try booting the PC and keep tapping the delete key until it enters set up, look for and load BIOS defaults / fail safe defaults, press F10 to save, type Y to confirm, press enter to reboot
