Aida64 warning hardware failure detected?

Recommended Posts

How can I read the results?


The reason I was running this test is because I experience random screen flickering (screen turns black a few seconds) while gaming and also FPS drops in graphically less demanding games like Dota 2 and CS:GO. I was running CPU and GPU at stock without any OC. Is there a way to fix this problem?


Any help would be appreciated.

It's not possible to tell which exact component causes stability issues. It could be the motherboard, CPU, RAM, power supply unit, a system setting, a Windows driver, etc. etc.

I'd update the motherboard BIOS to the latest build, and also re-check RAM settings to make sure they use the proper voltage and timings.
