Mini-freeze/crash, monitor images freeze

New PC, just built last week.

This has happened 4 possibly 5 times. The four times...I have VLC media player open, computer freezes for 1-2 seconds, then audio resumes but image on each monitor becomes frozen. Tried turning monitor off and on again, didn't work. Nothing I can do but press reset.

The 5th (3rd, really) time happened when I was afk for 10-15 minutes. Came back and monitors were 'no signal' mode. I forget what was running then... but the other 4 times I definitely had VLC open. It doesn't seem to be reproducible. I tried going back to where I was on a couple videos when the freeze happened but it didn't happen again...so I don't think it's corrupt video files. I used these two monitors on previous PC and this didn't happen... probably something to do with new PC's video drivers.

In the BIOS, try disabling "global C states", and set "Power Supply Idle Current" to Typical. The names might be worded slightly differently depending on your bios revision.

If that doesn't help, what OS are you running? are the video drivers up to date?
