Not sure how this is done but I have a serious problem occuring. I recently got a new motherboard, CPU, and 2 new ram chips in. I ran into the problem where Windows 7 didn't want to start so we got Windows 8.1 (I used 64bit.) When I got a Call of Duty World at War installed I tried to play it and the second it loaded Semper Fi (First mission) my computer restarted, it was like holding the power button for a hard stop then instantly hitting the button again after it shutoff. I thought it was a problem with compability with that game till I tried to play Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and when I loaded a map it did the same thing (when I opened my locker to view some new items it happend aswell from loading the items models, textures, and small map) I've tried the program prime95 and when I open it it restarted on me, I've tried furmark and tried to run a benchmark but it did it again) My Computer Components: GPU: EVGA Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 CPU AMD FX-8320 3.5 GHz 8 core Motherboard: M5A99X EVO Memory: Kingston DDR3 4 GB Ram chips x2 Hard Drive: 465 GB HDD with Sata 3.0 and I believe 7200 RPM A Disk Drive (Don't know much)
My OS: Windows 8.1 (updated, installed on 1/11/14)
other info, as said in this discussion http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/326049-28-computer-restarts-playing-games the person reinstalled Windows 7 and disabled updates and he said it worked for him. I have Windows 8.1 meaning I'm probably past this update and it's causing me problems In event viewer I get critical error ID 41 like the above linked topic. If more information is needed I will try to give it
