Recently my pc has been freezing while playing Black desert online. When it freezes it completely locks up and send this loud krrrrrrr noise in my headset(scares the crap out of me everytime) and am unable to do anything i have to hold my finger on the power button to shut it down and then wait for it to come back up. I always monitor my temps on my second monitor and they look good CPU never gets higher that 70c under load and GPU 80c under load. I have checked event viewer and it only shows the kernel power loss which just tells me the pc was shut down unexpectedly.
I phone UK gaming computers(the place i got the pc) and they said it sounds like a software issue and have told me to wipe windows and then try again. So i will try that but its a fairly fresh install and has been fine for months, is there any programs out there i can run to check if its a software issue?
Personally i think its the heat as we've been getting some mega hot weather the past few weeks and thats when is seems to have started... im not sure.
