    Pc restarts when I play a game


    Hey I’ve gotten this pc recently and it’s in pretty good shape. Now out of nowhere, my pc has been restarting everytime I try to play a game. For example, I can load up the game just fine. I get past the title screen but once I get past that. My screen goes black and my pc just restarts me back to the log in screen. I tried other games but I got the same result. Please help me out.

    :)

  3. Issue when playing games

    Hello,

    This issue when you're playing games can be due to incompatible driver since it can be resolved by updating the display driver. However, we would like to know more about your concern. Kindly provide us the needed information below:

    • Which device are you using in playing games?
    • Is this issue happening when you're playing online or offline games?
    • Is there a connected USB device?
    • Are you getting any error messages?

    As an initial recommendation, we suggest that you try reinstalling the driver instead of updating it. Here's how:

    • Open Device Manager.
    • Right-click (or tap and hold) the name of the device.
    • Select Uninstall.
    • Restart your PC and Windows will attempt to reinstall the driver.

    Looking forward to your response for any updates.
