  1. Black screen of death when playing games


    Hello guys,

    When I play any game (World War Z, Rainbow Six Siege, Wolfenstein Youngblood, and Far Cry 3), I got the black screen of death. I thought it was a cutscene, but my monitor says "NO SIGNAL". After that, I have to restart my computer with the power button. I am so scared that my files may get corrupted. Is there any fix for this?

    - - - Updated - - -

    But now, I uninstalled Wolfenstein Youngblood and replaced it with Wolfenstein: The New Order.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Some of my games can run smoothly without that black screen of death.

    :)
