After I download a game on steam, or anywhere, I can only play it once, and then it crashes. I've checked my graphics drivers and they're updated fine. My laptop is an asus rog zx50vw-ms71. It has an Intel i7, nvidia 960m, 8gb of ram, and 1 tb of storage. Thank you all in advance

Those are not bad specs, should be able to run fine.
Lets try something easier first:
  1. Open steam and then go to steam settings
  2. Click on downloads tab
  3. Clear Download Cache, click ok, it will log you out
  4. Log back in and see if that helped
Do you have antivirus software such as avast? Maybe try disabling or uninstalling it temporarily to see if that helps. Check task manager while you play too. I know Win10 updates can be pretty aggressive and cause problems.

Do you by chance have any fps counter programs? If you do, disable or remove those and see if that helps.

Thank you, that helped but I think my graphics card us messed up, because the nvidia control panel also keeps crashing

That is good, and okay yes it is definitely your graphics card. Maybe try this:
  1. Go to search, type msconfig, go to services
  2. check anything related to nvidia
  3. Especially check "Nvidia Geforce Experience Service" and "Nvidia Display Driver Service"
  4. see if that helps
