So, when I'm streaming/playing games and hosting a terraria server, sometimes, all my "browser" based applications die. This includes Steam, Chrome, Internet explorer, and etc. This wouldn't be an issue normally, but they REFUSE to boot back up.


I'm at a loss? What do you guys think it is.


Many thanks,

Do you mean that even though the Dell Support page says:


The Silicon Support policy for Skylake has been extended to 2020.


On January 15, 2016 Microsoft announced new support policies limiting support for Skylake systems with Windows 7 taking effect in July 2018. Since then, Microsoft received feedback from customers at various stages of planning and deployment of Windows 10 expressing that they would benefit from some additional time to manage these migrations. Based on this feedback, Microsoft has now updated the operating system support policies for Skylake chipsets providing all critical updates for Windows 7 until January 14, 2020 and for Windows 8.1 until January 10, 2023.


And what Dell (for example of one manufacturer) and Microsoft say on this page is not true?





And all the manufacturers on this page think they have Skylake support and they really don't?
