    I just reformatted this morning and did a fresh win10 pro install and all updates including the newest one that can't be done through update.

    I'm having a hell of a problem streaming to my living room tv in that all of a sudden the picture goes away and turns to some yellow/whitish brown color and some god awful sound comes out. The same picture is also on my computer monitor and the keyboard is non responsive with no caps lock input lighting up the keyboard. AKA it just flat locks up.

    I reloaded because the computer was none responsive at times when I came in the office in the morning. The keyboard and mouse would have no input and the display was just black all while the HD light was going nuts.

    One would think even viewer wouldn't be littered with a mess on a fresh install but that isn't the case.

    Looking through event viewer has never been my strong suite since most of it doesn't make sense. Unfortunately I'm getting on here after the initial hour mark to post this from when it took a crap the last time and did the weird steady tone and the odd screen color on both of my displays but you can see with just loading it today there is well more problems in event viewer then there should be.

    Click the little plus signs next to Critical and Error so we can see what it says.

    The ones under critical just state: "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

    This is because I had to forcefully press and hold the power button to shut down the computer since it was non responsive any other way.

    There has got to be a better way to share the information lol. Like an export feature or something. If the panels could be adjusted to where it would show the whole field that would be one thing but copy past crop save upload rinse repeat. I'm already beat today from jacking with this thing all day.

    Try the reliability monitor, it's far easier to comprehend than event viewer.

    Click the start button and type 'reliability' without the quotes and click on the result, it may offer some insight.

    Just a guess..... Those errors are all over the place, which means to me that either the drivers are jacked or the mainboard is jacked.

    Did you let Windows Update install the drivers or did you goto the website of the manufacturer and download the drivers?

    Much easier to find what's going on. I think it was the MSIDDRService. Which is the MSI Command Center. It failed every time the computer locked the hell up. I uninstalled it and attempted streaming the same show to our living room this morning and it played all the way through without issue. For some reason the Corsair Utility for my keyboard has problems with this install. It will install fine but errors on update and registers as not installing ok yet I can change my colors and save them just fine. Probably a program issue in the newest version I guess.

    Upon initial boot I installed the drivers direct from MSI then ran windows update completely including the newest update that you have to download the update tool or what ever it was to get.

    The reliability monitor is one of the most useful diagnosis tools ever to be implemented in Windows, and most don't even know it exists.

    Count me as one of those. LOL Playing the same vid again for the hell of it to see if it runs through all the way again. Hopefully this corrects the issues. I freakin hate reloading everything. At least JRiver Media Center can export all the settings and then import them again. Makes setting it up much easier.
