  1. computer freezes while playing games


    I decided to take my computer apart to clean it then put it back together and after I put it together whenever I play some games it freezes and on occasion makes a buzzing sound in my headphones it also seems to crash faster if I am in a discord call or playing a YouTube video in the background. there is nothing in event manager and it crashes faster on some games more than others, like in rainbow six siege I will maybe be able to get through a round before it freezes and with a game like among us has never frozen.

    here are my specs

    i5-2500k

    Geforce GTX 960

    4x4 gb ram

    ASUS P8P67 REV 3.1 mobo

    Can't play Hit It Rich game and system freezes

    Hi carmenstanley1,

    Thank you for your response.

    I can understand how frustrating it would be. This issue might be due to corrupted profile or if the game is not installed completely. I suggest you to follow these steps and let us know if it works.

    Could you please help me with the below questions:

    • Are you aware of any changes happened on the computer prior to this issue?
    • Have you tried playing this game on other browser (Google chrome or Mozilla) and check for the issue?

    Step 1: Uninstall or Repair the game.


    1. Press Windows and
      R key together on your Keyboard.
    2. Type appwiz.cpl and hit enter.
    3. Right click on the Hit it Rich app > Select Repair or uninstall it.
    4. Reinstall the application and check for the issue.

    Step 2: Create a new local account.

    The reason might be due to user account corruption, so I would suggest you to ‘Create
    a local user or administrator account’
    and check if the issue persists.

    Note: You will not see all your files under your default file location.
    So your data will be saved under C:\Users\User_name.

    If you are facing issues with freezing, I would suggest you to follow the troubleshooting steps on

    Hope it helps.

    computer freezes while playing games

    Games freeze when playing

    When I play most games, they freeze and stop working. I have tested this playing online, they only freeze visually. My input still works, as I have had my friend verify that my character still moves. I still have volume and sounds that seem to be working properly. I have two monitors and everything works just as it is supposed to on the other monitor. The games don't lag before freezing. My computer and drivers are all up to date. I have looked everywhere and asked around, but can't find a solution, or even people with a similar problem. I reset my computer and that seemed to work for a while, but 2 weeks later the issue resufraced.

    I can play games like Hearthstone without an issue, but something like Heroes of the Storm or Grim Dawn freeze up. Prey freezes up along with MGSV: The Phantom Pain. Again, to clarify, my computer does not freeze up, but it seems just the game visuals do.

    Specs for my PC are:
    Windows 10 Home version 1709
    OS build: 15063.674
    Processor: Intel i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50GHz
    RAM: 16 GB
    64-bit
    GPU: GeForce GTX 770
