the Gray Screen of Death
*not related with PCSX2

I just wondering, what it can be... ?
I have no such a problem with my old computer.

It can happen just after playing game or watching videos (ten or more second). Computer stuck/freeze, not respond.
...and of course screen become all-Gray.

Only way get out from this state - push "the Button of All-Сlarification" (reset).

as i remember... , - i already try reinstall/update Windows, drivers and Bios... can it be RAM fault?

**vista x64, 4gb, ati 4800 series
***thanks for answers, sorry for bad English

Could be RAM, maybe overheating.

Memtest86+ or PRIME95 should let you know if it's a RAM fault. If either of those don't crash your PC after 6 or so hours, pretty much nothing will.

Sounds like a graphics card heat issue (had a similiar problem with a 8600 gt)

try that for your gpu and see what your temps are (has a built in temp monitor)

While running prime95 i would monitor my temps -


which ati 4800 series card is it?
Core 2 Duo 2.93 X6800
6xgigs DDR2 4-4-4-12
EVGA Geforce 260 216 core 896mb
WD 320 gig, Maxtor 300 gig
SB Audigy 2 Zs
Asus p5n-e
Vista 64bit Business
4870. Overheating after watching videos? Anyway i from time to time look at card's termo-monitor and it says that heat about 50C (temperature is OK).
crappy power supplier can also cause this, also as suggested try stress gpu and cpu and watch temps
Intel Dual Core E5200 @ 3,5ghz /gigabyte GF9500GT/2 GB RAM / ASRock P45XE/ Corsair CMPSU-400CXEU
