Hi,

i got a weird problem.

First time it appeared was in Bioshock 3. While i am ingame and playing, after 2-10min the screen turns black, but i still hear the sounds from the game, but there is no way i can get back or shut down the game. I can then only restart the computer.

The second time. I bought Saints Row 4 a few days ago and it is the same there, after a time, i just receive a black screen and also here, i can't do anything except restarting the computer. I have researched abit and it was said to check if the game works on a small window on the desktop and yes, in this way it worked and it never crashed. But when i switched to full screen again, it started to give black screens again.

I also lowered all graphic serttings on the both games and there is no difference. Really cant enjoy games and feel like, i just wasted money.

Beside that i am playing games like CoD1, CoD2, Minecraft or Left for Dead 2 and i dont have any problems there.

And by the way, on metro 2033 i can't start the game. It tells me metro 2033 executable stopped to work or something.
As i googled abit, it was told to install nvidia physx, but that didnt change anything too. So what could i do then?

You could be over working your system. Looking at the requirements for Bioshock 3 you system is at the low end of the minimum requirements. This could be causing it to overheat. Is this a laptop or desktop?

Is that a factory-brand or custom/home-made desktop?

If it's a factory-brand one, advise what brand name and model name and model number it is.

If it's a custom/home-made one, advise what brand name and model number the motherboard is.

Also provide a description of its power supply.

It has 2 memory slots and supports a maximum of 32 GB of RAM, but yours appears to have only 4 GB of RAM.

Because you use it for gaming and its running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, you should add at least another 4 GB of RAM.

Enermax Ostrog tower case

You didn't provide a description of the power supply.
