So recently my pc has been crashing when running games that it could normally run flawlessly. Even games with low graphics requirements. The crash usually occurs a few minutes in depending on the games requirements, the screen turns into these vertical green lines and sometimes it buzzes. Usually it will do this once or twice briefly, then it will do it one final time for good and it will not respond to any commands. Im forced to power it down with the power button. The only thing i can think of that happened around the time the crashes started happening (like I said it could normally run games fine), was that I unplugged the computers power cable for a bit because I needed the adapter it was plugged into. I feel like the crashes began after that but I dont know for sure.
Here are my system specs:
Processor: AMD A6-5400K 3.60 GHz Dual Core
Operating System: Windows 7 32-bit
Video Card: AMD Radeo 6700 series 1GB onboard RAM
Thanks in advance for the help.
PS: I installed the latest AMD drivers but I'm not sure what other drivers could be affecting gameplay.
