My pc often shuts itself down and automatically restarts. It only happens when a game is running, most of the time when there is a loading screen or right after, or when I change the settings of a game. I thought it could be my graphics card, but after replacing it, this still happens. (I wanted to buy a new one, no matter what, so no money lost)
So, what happens and when:
-When: When I start running a game; when there is a loading screen; when I change the settings of a game; once in a while random while gaming; NEVER when there is no game running, so not with YouTube, Internetbrowser, ...
What: PC just shuts down, as if there is a power reset (fans keep spinning), and immediately restarts again
Sometimes, this doesn't happen in weeks, but other times it just keeps happening every time I try to game. Does anyone know what the problem could be and how I can fix it?
