SILICON POWER BP81 EARBUDS Review

Overall we consider the Silicon Power Blast Plug BP81’s to be surprisingly good for this price range. So good we did forget these were BlueTooth based and not wired.

INWIN A1 PLUS Review

Though the A1 Plus is not perfect it is damn close. InWin has really brought their A game to the A1 Series of cases. Even if you are not a RGB fan the ARGB is truly beautiful and simple to setup and use.

Ryzen 5 3400G Review

When taken as whole, the Ryzen 5 3400G may not be perfectly suited for everyone, but it is pretty darn close to being the perfect system upgrade for the budget conscience and / or value hunter.Ryzen

PC Games Crashing

Recommended Posts

My PC has started to more frequently crash out of games. It normally crashes to the desktop with a crash report and has done this for multiple games. It has recently even started to completely freeze the computer and forces me to shut it off. It normally occurs during loading screens and other moments that would require the most power.

After posting on a different forum I was told its probably my PSU. I provided a lot of information on that forum if you want to give it a look.

Any overclock on anything? If it goes into the game, does it every then crash, or only on loading?

@Bond007 No overclock, and I would say it crashes 1/3 times after the game loading back into the lobby.

Have you at any point swapped graphics card? The last time I had an issue like this I had done a gpu swap...99% of the time you can get away with uninstalling everything and reinstalling.... 1% of the time a fresh windows install.

Otherwise it could be power related, but I usually only see hard lockups when its power...not what you initially had.

@Bond007 Nope never swapped. I recently tried reinstalling windows on it though .

Trying to read a virtual address means its USUALLY one of three things: RAM, HDD (virtual mem), or the VRAM on the GPU. I supposed it COULD be the PSU pushing dirty power, but usually memory related. Could also be heat related on the video card.... or just a plain on failing video card.

I assume its only happening during games. IF so... prolly the card. Most likely the VRAM on the card.Easy things first. DL and run memtest. Test all your system memory (RAM). Let em go for an hour or so.For virtual... increase the size and swap drive it is using.

Still happening? Lower VRAM on the card. Bring it back to AMD Fury R9 STOCK mem speeds.Still happening? Lower it down a couple hundred below AMD ref mem speeds.Still happening? Try the card in a dif rig.

This all assume that you also have tried reseating the RAM sticks, making sure no dirt around the contacts, and reseated the video card as well.

This ALSO assumes your PSU is big enough to handle the stress loads. Right at the edge... and wonky things can happen. BUT would try the above first before buying a new PSU.
