HELP NEEDED!!! COMPUTER CRASHES WHEN LAUNCHING ALL GAMES

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Any help would be greatly appreciated. My PC crashes and restarts itself instantly whenever I try to load any game on it. The screen goes black and the computer restarts itself as if I am pressing the restart button on my PC. My specs are as follows:

Processor: Intel (R) Core(TM) i5-4570 CPU @ 3.20GHz
RAM: 8.0 GB
System Type: 64-Bit Operating System, x64 based processor
Operating System: Windows 10
Motherboard: ASRock B85M-HDS
Graphics: 2048MB ATI AMD Radeon R9 200 Series (Sapphire)
Storage: 931Gm Western Digital
Optical Drive: TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-224DB

I have also run a variety of checks such as MemTest, Speccy, Speed Fan to check core temperatures and everything appears to be running fine all around 36 degrees and lower. I have also done a chkdsk and there were no errors plus i have run AVG and there are no viruses.

ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED

Test your power supply, check that none of your HDD cables are bad. You did not mention what model power supply you have. A proper memory stress test software costs about $14, make sure you do SFC /scannow to test your system for error. You have to test your components one by one to find out the culprit or to isolate to either software or hardware problem.

Either sfc /scannow or the PSU. What is an R9 200?

Instant pop off while loading game would most likely be a bad PSU. Most other software and hardware issue cause error codes, blue screens, power downs, etc. An instant pop off like the cord has been pulled, especailly right when you demand more power is likely the PSU.

What PSU do you have? Make sure you replace it with a quality unit, that is one device you don't want to skimp on. The guys in the PSU threads are pretty knowledgeable here also.
