PC locks up, screen goes black for minutes, but test doesn't fail

Recommended Posts

First post. Love the product and the active support community!

I *think* I have a stable system:

  • Ryzen 5 1600 3.8 GHz @ 1.3375v
  • MSI Tomahawk B350
  • 16GB Corsair LPX 3200 RAM running at 2666 @ 1.36v
  • EVGA GTX 1070 SC with a +100/500 overclock GPU/memory
  • Plenty of clean power via an EVGA Supernova G2 750w PSU

I've run AIDA64 for hours without failures with the ^^ settings after some failed tests made me pull back my memory clock and increase my Vcore. Most recently I ran FPU by itself without issue (76C max temp on top-down air cooling in a "meh" airflow case...weird, right? I'll save that for another post), then all the subtests (minus GPU) at once without FPU, then finally added FPU to the mix for the last hour so that all subtests minus GPU were running at once. At multiple points during my stress testing my two monitors went black for 5-10 minutes at a time. The pointer was visible and movable, sometimes with a spinny wheel, sometimes not, but at no point could I get control of the PC back until it decided to come back on its own. I assumed this was going to be a failed test but the progress bar was still chugging along and no failures had been reported. I've gotten the black screen on a GPU only test before and assumed it was because I was stressing the graphical interface beyond its ability to send info to my monitors, but in these recent tests I omitted the GPU from testing. I've read up as much as I can find in these forums and around the web but haven't seen this as a problem. Any feedback would be appreciated.

It could be because Windows was trying to activate the screen saver or lock screen while the test was still running.  But, since the AIDA64 stress test is quite demanding, Windows itself may not have gotten the enough number of CPU cycles to use its own features about updating the Desktop.

Either way, in case the test kept going on, no error was reported, and the computer didn't lock up or powered off, it is still a stable system ;)

Thanks. Ironically, I think it was the BOINC screensaver, which oddly never comes on while running BOINC but does come on only after a minute or two of AIDA64. Must have installed itself with the BOINC manager.

Thank you for letting us know about the root cause :)

      Hi,
      Nicehash2 freezes when aida64 sensor panel is running.
      It occurs within 5 min when using google chrome together with nicehashv2 using equihash for the GPU and cryptonightv7 for the CPU
      , using Nvidia drivers 391.35.
      When using nvidia drivers 397.64, this is even worst, there are BSOD generated.
      Using win10 home 64 bits, latest aida64 5.97.4633 beta
      5 GTX1070 and 1950X CPU.
       
      My sensor panel config is attached.
      Sensor panel Refresh speed set to 2 seconds.

      Hey everyone, i have a rather basic understanding of overclocking, and stress testing so let me just start with that.
      To start off.
      I run a
      750 power supply
      MSI Gaming pro carbon 270z
      i7 7700k
      MSI GTX 1080 TI
      Gskill  32gigs @2117
      Water cooler blah blah blah.
       
      When i run a stress test on Memory @ Stock Specs (for everything including GPU) everything passes and nothings unstable.
      MSI has this nifty "Gaming mode" in its BIOS which Clocks my CPU 4.8 Max and my RAM @2800 (which is the advertised speed).
      Once i run a stress test on the Memory in said Gaming mode i get "hardware fail" from ADIA64.
      This is rather quickly after starting the test, 10 seconds top.
      once i push everything back to stock and reboot everything runs stable which makes me believe my RAM isnt "bad".
      Now i can't for the life of my figure out if i have "bad ram" or i don't have the correct voltage..  or...

      i can post logs if needed not sure on what information is needed here.

      Computer skills: New overclocker
       
      Any help would be amazing

      Hi,
      I have an Asus Z10PED16WS MoBo.  Any time I do anything that triggers a sensor scan in AIDA64 my machine locks up.  I have the same issue in HWINFO64, so I don't think its an AIDA bug.
      I want to enable logging so I can see exactly what is happening before the Machine Locks up, but when I select the logging tab in preferences, it initiates the sensor scan locking up the machine before I can enable  anything.
      Is there any way I can enable logging without initiating the sensor scan so I can see whats happening?
      Thank You -

      Hello and gooday,
      Recently I got an upgrade that replace my intel atom(n445) neetbook, my new laptop was asus K43SJ, the spec was an intel i3 2330m 2.2Ghz caupled with nvidiaGT520m on board grapic.
      The system have 4GB of memory and run on win7pro.The original owner who donating this laptop was complaining about heat and lag, I assume this laptop need fresh thermal paste..
      To test the heat problem, I run aida64 system stress test and here's the result(in picture)
      I have no experience using aida64 on a pc laptop. What is the red line  red cart(cpu trottle at 50%)?? should I worry about It?? does overal of the system ok??
      and finally can someone teach me how to read aida64 stabylity test result
      thanks
      -EDIT-
      I have clened the laptop from accumulating cat fur
