  2. PC reboots randomly when playing games in steam

    Hello,

    So for the past month my PC has just reboots, it reboots when I play games on steam mainly. But its not because its overheating, because I check my AMD OverDrive and the temps are fine. I also unchecked "Automatically restart" under system failure, but it
    still does it.

    Also I did a SFC and nothing was wrong, and a DISM which didn't help at all. Neither does View event logs, but I don't know what it means.

    The screens suddenly turn black and there's a glitching noise in the speaker.. Not sure why I have tried anything I can, I appreciate the help

    1. Did you make any changes prior to this issue?

    2. Does the issue occur when you play offline games as well?

    3. Does the issue arise when you launch normal desktop applications?

    For now, I suggest that you uninstall and reinstall the steam application and check if the issue replicates. Also try to play games on other online sites and check

    Steam

    Hi Sam,

    There are several reasons why you are unable to play the game that you installed using the Steam Client. It is possible that the app is corrupted or the permission settings are not enabled on your PC. To resolve your concern, we suggest that you reset the
    app.

    This process can help restore corrupted game installation files. Here's how:

    • Press the Windows key on your keyboard, and then click the Settings icon.
    • Select System, and then select Apps & features.
    • Find the game, and then click on Advanced options.
    • Click Reset.
    • Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

    You may visit this
    link
    for the instructions on how to enable app permissions on your PC.

    Make sure that you are using an administrator account to launch the app. If you are still experiencing the same issue, remove the
    ClientRegistry.blob file by following the steps below:

    • Close the Steam Client and go to the Steam root folder or C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam.
    • Look for the ClientRegistry.blob file.
    • Make a copy of the file and change it to a different file name. (for example, copy.ClientRegistry.blog)
    • Delete the original file.
    • Launch the Steam Client and run your game again.

    If the issue persists, you may relocate the Steam Client by performing the steps below:

    • Close the Steam Client app and go to the Steam installation folder.
    • Browse for the installation files that you would like to move.
    • Delete all of the files inside that folder except the SteamApps & Userdata and Steam.exe.
    • You may cut and paste the whole Steam installation folder to a default storage location on your PC.
    • Launch the app again and make sure to log in using your account.

    After signing in, you'll need to change the default installation path for the games that you will install in the future. Here's how:

    • Launch the Steam Client and go to the Settings
      menu.Select Steam Library Folders from the
      Downloads tab.
    • You may create a new path by selecting Add Library Folder. All future installations will go directly to the newly created path.
    • Right-click on the newly created path and make sure that it is set to default.

    If you are still unable to play your games using the Steam Client, we recommend that you contact
    Steam Support directly for additional solutions in fixing the app and its components.

    Should you have any other queries, you can contact us anytime.
