    Hi! I've got a problem with my computer crashing some minutes after startup but after the first crash it works fine.

    I usually watch a youtube video as I start a game and after 2-3 minutes ingame both my screens freeze. After I restarted I can do exacly the same and do more multitasking and it works without problem. I don't know where to start, can anyone help me?

    The problem started to occure when I switched my harddrive to a bigger one. I only have games on my harddrive and my operating system on a SSD (Windows 10).

    Try updating your graphics drivers

    Make sure your Windows is up to date in addition to the graphics drivers.

    I still have the same crashes after I updated my drivers and Windows tells me that I am up to date.

    Thanks, got them, will let you know how I am going, from time to time. May be quick, or may be a slow process.

    Is this a solution or is it anything I should do after?

    It's a test to see if it does solve your problem.

    It didn't solve the problem. I've also tried to reset the PC and delete everything on it with no effort.
