Intel i3-7100 graphic freezes

Jump to solution

Hi,

I have an HTPC connected to my TV with an i3-7100 on a Gigabyte GA-H270N-WIFI running Windows 10 64bits. I have Windows 10 and all my drivers up to date. I only use it for watching movies and TVShows with PLEX and since a few weeks the most of the times graphics card get freezed right after ending a show and image goes black and I have to restart. I've tried with KODI and it's the same, so PLEX is not the problem. Before that I have never had any issue.

When the problem happens, if I click Win+CTRL+SHIFT+B to restart the graphics card and the image returns for a second and goes black again (Windows remains running in the back).

I thought that it might be due to a Windows update problem so I have reinstalled Windows 10 Spring 2018 and stopped Windows Update but the problem is still there. I don't know what else I can do. I also tried with previous versions of the graphics card drivers but nothing changes.

Any ideas of what is going on?

Thanks.
