Pretty easy problem to explain. Games crash my computer after a while. Heavy graphics requirement games (witcher 3) only take 5 minutes and low graphics games (csgo) take longer (happened after a few hours). I logged temperature of gpu and cpu cores, sampling every 2 seconds while playing witcher 3. Gpu temps were in the mid 60's C and CPU temps were in the mid 40s, which are all well within their ratings. Not sure what's causing this. At the crash, I just see vertical lines running down the screen of alternating color. Sound freezes and replays indefinitely over a short interval. No error message given. Drivers are up to date, says amd control center.

Specs

GPU - AMD r9 290

CPU - intel i5 4670k

OS - Windows 7

Mobo - Gigabyte H81M-HD3

PSU - Corsair 750W

8gb ram

Welcome to the Community of Bleeping Computer jlark92. :welcome:

 

Do you happen to have set overclocking? I would also think of a heating problem along with a possibly hardware or video graphics as the culprit.

No overclocking. Heat never rose above 67C

Did your PC has latest version of direct x, .NET Framework, C++ Redistributable installed? Sometimes these can cause game crashes.

Would it cause the entire machine to crash? And how do I check for those?

These updates are coming along with Windows update. Make sure that you have enabled "installed update automatically" for your PC.

Great, I'll give it a try. If it matters, I've done more tests and apparently my machine doesn't crash as long as the games are running in windowed mode on slightly less resolution.

You need to turn on auto updates (recommended) by Control Panel if you have a newly install operating system. Type dxdiag by Start - Search box and look on System tab for the DirectX version.
