    Hi all,

    So my monitor randomly blacks out during gameplay, this issue has occured while I've been playing Minecraft and League of Legends. However, it is yet to hinder me while I play Battlefield or Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Simply put, it's just damn strange.

    I recently upgraded to an MSI mainboard and now I actually get an error message.

    MSI BIOS report: "HyperTransport Sync Flood Error"
    Event Viewer report: "HyperTransport Watchdog Timeout Error
    Component: AMD Northbridge
    Error Source: Machine Check Exception
    Error Type: HyperTransport Watchdog Timeout Error
    Processor ID: 0"

    The problem only persists while the Radeon HD 6770 is installed but not while the GeForce 9500GT is installed.

    Hyper Transport is processor technology (as far as I'm aware). So I'm left confused (again), I'd really like to know what my card is doing to cause such a stir. Or is it totally down to the processor? Any thoughts...

    If any information is needed, ask away :)

    I understand that maybe a couple of you read up on my previous and unresolved 'BSOD problem' but since I'm actually getting an error, I thought I'd put it forward and see of I get any joy out of this.

    I've finally figured out the solution to this god damned problem. I can't believe I didn't try this in the first place.. So a big *facepalm* for me.

    If anyone else is having a similar problem regarding the HyperTransport, increase the voltage to it to around 1.3V if this is your default and you have a decent PSU, you could try boosting it a little more.

    I hope this does help someone as I almost had my hair out with it. :)
