    Howdy,

    Try this

    Download and install hwmonitor
    and see what the temps etc are. Download the 1.17 setup, english on the righthand side.
    ....take a reading when not running the game or programs CPU(core) and GPU Video card and post them. (Just a screenshot of results is fine)

    Then run the game or any other intensive program for awhile and take another reading post the results

    Hi! Before I got your message, I updated windows, and now it says like , something with that Nvidia Drivers was reseted or so, and before that message pops up, My screen goes black for a fes seconds. And i cant still play any games , the screen still goes black if I've played it for like 4 minutes. I also had this problem with " Nvidia Drivers" 1 year ago , and that process endes with that we sended in the pc to reparation , which we cant do for free now, because it was 2 years ago we bought it...

    Sounds like a heat issue. After you've run hwmonitor, as per Megabite's
    directions, you might want to open the case and see if the fan for the
    video card is working (if it has one).

    My 2 cents would be to check if the games are compatible with your PC or not...
