Hi, whenever I try to play some games (Portal 2, Spec Ops: The Line, X-Com Enemy Unknown, Bioshock Infinite) my computer will just crash on me. Sometimes I get a blue screen and other times it will just switch itself straight off, but it always restarts right after.
I have no idea what could be the problem as I meet the specs for all these games.
I did try to run through the Steam support guides to try to fix the issue (updating drivers etc) but it didnt work and I'm not sure I did it right.
When windows restarts it gives the following information:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 2057
Additional information about the problem:
OS Version: 6_1_7600
Service Pack: 0_0
Files that help describe the problem:
Ok I posted this question a few days ago and since getting the advice I have tried changing to an old GPU that my PSU should have no problem powering and didnt for months. Also, I have tried using either one of my RAM sticks by themselves in different slots to see if it was a bad RAM stick causing the crash. However neither of these things has helped as my desktop will still crash upon opening these games.
I also installed speedfan to test the temperature of my system:
Fan 1: 13 RPM Temp 1: 28C
Fan 2: 3124 RPM Temp 2: 46C
Fan 3: 0 RPM Temp 3: 31C
Fan 1: 2199 RPM HD0: 27C
Fan 2: 0 RPM GPU: 27C
Sadly I have no idea whether or not these results are bad or even possibly the cause of the crashes, if someone could provide some help it would be much appreciated.
