If you’re getting bluescreens, most often that indicates a major hardware issue or conflict with something important, like a security program. If you’re doing any overclocking, start by disabling this. I would also recommend enabling debug mode on your Nvidia graphics card as follows:
- Right click your desktop
- Click NVIDIA Control Panel
- Click Help near the top of the window
- Toggle the Debug Mode on - a checkmark will show up
If debug mode is not available (grayed out) ignore this step. This step just disables any manufacturer overclocks on your graphics card.
If these work, you need to tweak your overclocks until they’re stable again. If that doesn’t work it’s likely overheating. Grab hwmonitor and play a game until it crashes. Once it does, check the “max” column of your test for CPU/GPU overheating. If those are getting too hot, clean the PC and take it to a PC tech if that doesn’t fix the overheating - that’d probably mean some of the heat hardware needs maintenance or replacement.
If you don’t see anything, let’s snag some screenshots:
- Maximize the HWMonitor window and expand all the nodes on the left
- Scroll all the way up
- Take a screenshot with the Print Screen (prtscn) key
- Open up the program Paint and press ctrl+v to paste in the test
- Crop the screen if you want to only show the test, then save it as Test1.JPG
- Scroll all the way down, then repeat steps 3-5.
- Upload them somewhere like imgur and link us to the results. We’ll use those to look for more options.
If you get link errors, just link it between two ` marks, it’ll break the link and let you post it. You can just copy paste everything in the box below and replace “Link goes here” with your link.
