    Lock Screen During Games

    My windows 10 will go to a lock screen during games. Specifically, iRacing when using the wheel as my input. I have even disabled the lock screen, but it does not seem to have helped.

    computer crashes during a game "warface"

    My entire screen locks up during a game... I'm running windows 10. I've tried compatibilty modes (all) of them... and still during the game at some point my screen locks up, and I have no mouse function or anything. I have to reboot the PC from the tower.
    I ran GPU test etc.. my PC is a brand new custom built... It has the sabretooth 9590 eight-core processor mother board, two Geforce GTX 980 graphic cards, and feeding it is 1300 watts of continues power by Antec HCP Platinum. From day one, there has always
    been an issue with Playing Warface. No other games will cause this to happen. I have the GeForce, NVIDIA to launch the game from, but no matter what the game causes my system to crash.

    lumia 920 freezing and locking

    Whilst I play games the phones sensitivity turns off or stops working during game play it freezes whilst things are still happening on the screen, a similar characteristic tends to happen while the phone is locked too, it freezes me out and won't respond
    till l vigorously press all buttons in an attempt to get it to work. Is there an update that adjust this reoccurring fault?

    Slopland, this worked for me:

    Go to Device Manager and select Display Adapters. Your video card will appear underneath it. Click on that. Now, it will probably tell you that the device is working perfectly and that you have the latest drivers. But click on the tab labelled "Events." Select the date that you installed Win 10. Does it say that your driver is installed completely or incompletely?

    If completely, your problem lies elsewhere. If incompletely, you need to re-install the driver, which USUALLY will not mess you up.

    Set a Restore Point and click the button for uninstalling your driver. Do not delete the driver! 10 will immediately switch to a generic driver, so your monitor won't go blank. Shut down, wait a minute, and restart. 10 might ask if you want to update to the latest driver or it might automatically re-install it. Check Events to see what happened. If it installed correctly, reboot and you'll be fine.

    Thank you for the reply. I checked and it is completely installed. I fresh installed everything with the video driver being the first thing after the OS.

    I looked at my Logitech wheel in device manager and power management. The checkbox "allow hardware to wake the computer" is unchecked and greyed out. The "allow pc to turn off this device" is checked. Maybe if this is not allowed to wake, and while in a race for upwards of 45 minutes, I do not provide any mouse or keyboard input (only wheel), the PC doesn't see the wheel as something "operating"? On the other hand, should it not detect that the video card is running something?

    2nd though is my wheel is USB plugged into a PCI USB/firewire card. Could this be the issue?

    Thanks again for your time.
