Greetings! I built my desktop a few weeks ago, and it was fine until very recently. My roommate gifted me Overwatch, and so I had to download Battle.net to play it. Every time I tried to install Battle.net my computer would shut down with no warning, so I installed it from safe mode.
Now, whenever I play Overwatch for a bit (and only when I play; I left it on the main screen for 10 hours with no issues), and sometimes when I open an application such as Chrome, my computer will shut down.
I have monitored the temperature and that does not seem to be it. I tried resetting and updating the BIOS, cleaning my computer, uninstalling and reinstalling all my drivers from the original disc, lowering the settings on the game, disabling automatic restarts, and even enabling WMI Performance Adapter (which was said to fix the issue with this game). I checked to see if the RAM was an issue, but diagnostics said there is nothing wrong.
It seems that the shutdowns happen whenever the computer is near 100% CPU usage, and pretty much this only happens with Overwatch.
I have been on my computer for hours now and have experienced no shutdowns, but I know the moment I try to play the game the problem will reoccur. Is there something I have not tried that I should look into?
