computer locks up / screen goes black

  • This isn't something I've been able to confirm is Diablo III, but it does seem to be unique to the application.

    Computer bascially freezes up completely (no alt/ctrl/del; keyboard stops responding to caps lock key) after 4-5 mins of running the beta. Can't diagnose it since yet, but I've tried to run the desktop for about 30-45mins before launching D3. Still getting the same result. Tried other games which has been OK so far.

    Will start diagnosing hardware soon.
  • foojoo,

    I'd start by seeing how hot the cpu and gpu are getting while playing.

    Download and run HWMonitor from http://www.cpuid.com/downloads/hwmonitor/1.18-setup.exe

    Now start the game and let it run several minutes. Then exit or alt-tab out and look at the monitor program. See what the highest temperature is that the cpu and gpu reached.
