    Sorry about the late reply, the computer's playing up as you could well imagine!


    it can go into safe mode. It hasn't played up in sade made...yet

    I've turned the resolution way down to maybe lessen the stress on it. and refreshing @ 60HZ.

    I have updated the BIOs to 3001

    I've also noticed that it cannot come out of standby or hibernate by moving the mouse or taping Spacebar. whenever i tap the spacebar, the CPU fans moves a bit, but nothing else. I'd have to push the power button to make it come out of standby/hibernate.

    Could my PSU be short ciruiting everything?

    If it doesn't do it in safe mode then that points toward your graphics driver.

    Or check the pins on the card. One of them maybe bent / not making contact

    Yep-uninstall them with DriverSweeper and install the latest again.
