Hi there,

 

I started a thread over in the BSOD and crash section:

 

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/597722/windowspc-freezes-reboot-required/

 

I was advised that this might be a network issue, so I have opened this thread here.

 

Basically, my pc has a random habit of locking up completely, to the point that I have to hold down the power button in order to force a shutdown, and then reboot.

This only happens whilst playing one online game, which is World of Tanks. It doesn't seem to affect anything else I do, either online or otherwise.

I have attached the event log that was requested in the original thread.

 

I have taken some steps with an issue that I discovered, but I would like someone's advice on this if possible.

 

Many thanks in advance!

Hello there, 

 

Perhaps the problem comes from your desktop casing/fans setup itself? Maybe they overheat and that causes the machine to freeze/crash? Or the card is not good enough for your heavy games and needs to be upgraded.

 

Try this free temperature monitor:  http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

 

Hope this helps!

Hi there,
My graphics card is new, and I recently had a second fan installed in my case. I use fan monitoring software already, and my GPU holds steady at about 60 degrees whilst I am playing. Also, I play Warthunder online, which is more graphics-intense than WoT, and have never experienced this freezing of my pc whilst playing that. Also, I've never seen any warning messages or event messages to suggest that it's a graphics related problem.
