So I'm having an issue with my pc. I thought it was my gpu overheating. The fan was going out and it was old so I just decided to replace it so I got a 1060. Still didn't fix my issue. It seems to be fine while just browsing internet and such but as soon as I load a game it will run about 10 minutes then I lose all video and have to reboot the computer. Just looking for tips on where to start fixing the problem. I dont have a ton of cash so I cant just do a new build at the moment. As a side, I'm not at my pc right now so I'm just trying to get some ideas of what I can try and I'll be working on it tonight. Thanks in advance.

My build.

I had the exact same issue. Please start by testing your RAM with Memtest86 for eight passes, one stick at a time.

I cant seem to get memtest to work. I tried loading to a flash drive but after I set USB as the boot option in my bios nothing ever happened. I ran the built in windows diagnostics tool and it found nothing. My gpu is running around 45 Celsius.

Try using this tool to create the USB: https://www.dropbox.com/s/h7qsgs6t2ociv6p/memtest86%2B-5.01.usb.installer.zip?dl=0

Even using that I just get a solid black screen with a white blinking underscore.

While installing onto the flash drive I got an error. Error occurred while executing syslinux. Your USB drive won't be bootable. I click ok and it finished and said it would be bootable so I dont know.

Something isn't right here, do you have a blank cd you could burn the iso onto, or another USB drive?

No. It's a brand new flash drive that I got today. I'll have to run by best buy tomorrow and get some blank discs I guess. Is there anything else I can try in the meantime? Could i try running with just 1 stick of ram and see if the error still occurs?

Hold off on buying anything yet. Yes, try using only one stick of RAM as a test.

So, I have been playing world of warcraft for a couple hours now with no issues on just the one stick of ram. Previously I could only go 20 minutes or so before I lost input. I'm guessing I should try it with the other stick just to confirm that it is faulty?

Also, gpu is running around 60 Celsius after 3 hours of wow so I assume that is fine.
