    COMPUTER freeze during youtube and gaming.


    Hi all,

    I recently build a new PC, 2-3 weeks old. All new parts...
    I noticed while playing game (WoW) and watching youtube on a different monitor (I run 2x 4k monitors). My PC will completely locked up, I can still hear the sound of the game playing in the background, but I can't do anything else but soft-reset my PC.

    This has happened twice, and I can't pinpoint the reason whats causing it.
    I'm using Firefox as my browser.
    The first time time it happened, i remembered it occurred as i was switching from 720p to 1080p video (fullscreen). Not sure if this is relevant or not.

    The reliability history only notifies me that window has failed to shutdown properly.

    You are in the wrong forum. As the Attention box at the top of the forum says:

    Suggest you post this in General Support forum or I can ask one of the Admins to move it.

    Computer / Game Freezing

    Ok since I moved back home from uni I brought my PC with me and I have been playing a game called Apex Legends, every so often in the game I just freeze but only the game as the rest of my PC is working fine but i did notice that the music i was listening
    to on YouTube froze at the same time.

    I would like to note that my music/videos on YouTube did occasionally freeze when my PC was first turned on but not on any games, it doesn't freeze on any other games at the moment apart from Apex Legends.

    I have my OS on a separate hard drive to the game and I have tried updating drivers.

    Thanks.
