I have a crashing issue. Basically, whenever I play a certain game lately I experience a crash that completely stalls the system to the point of the only solution being a reboot. Three days ago I reformatted my HDD assuming that lacking to do so initially after rebuilding/replacing my computer's hardware (CPU, mobo, RAM) was causing this crashing issue. Up until twenty minutes ago I thought it solved the problem. What's interesting is that the crash this time around leaves the display to my monitor going - where as before the reformat the crash caused the display to go dark. After a fresh format, and a clean OS install - onto a completely different partition - I'm inclined to think that it isn't a HDD issue. Starting to suspect my GPU now, my hardware specs are as follows:
Apologies in advance for being lazy with the links as references. I've played a number of other games, for lengthy periods, without any kinds of issues let alone this type of crash. I've lowered my graphic options as a desperate move, but that hasn't changed anything either. Ultimately, is there a way I can record the crash? A log of some kind, that I can refer to after the reboot to get a more detailed break down of what happened? Any other suggestions/opinions are more than welcome, and I'd be happy to answer any relevant questions any of you may have - thanks in advance.
Question.... why would a bad PSU only cause his PC to crash in 1 game? Wouldn't he see crashes at other times?... seriously... PSU does not seem likely (to me). But it would help to have your PSU specs.
