I'm rather dumb when it comes to these sorts of things and I've looking stuff up but with no luck, either the thing I found didn't work or it just left me feeling confused having no clue what any of what was said means. I really want to fix this error as my girlfriend recently got steam and wants to play with me, but for no reason, my computer randomly started crashing after approximately 2-3 minutes of gameplay (note, if i sit in a menu it won't crash, it's only when I'm actually playing the game.) I am confused as it isn't malware as I originally thought (as i did get a virus but it was successfully removed along with everything it damaged being fixed... I think, I also reverted to factory default with no luck) When it crashes the screen cuts to black, all audio stops but the computer stays on, although entirely unresponsive. I don't what else to say besides that it started randomly and the first time it happened it wasn't just a black screen but a black screen with thin vertical red stripes all across it. Every time after that was just a black screen. I don't know what broke but it clearly did it there and not even a factory default will fix it. I am really hoping I don't need to buy anything as I have no money. :c Please help asap. Thanks ahead of time for even looking at this post.
