    I had this issue since yesterday: whenever i try to play a game it seems like my PC just shuts down after a few minutes. I have no idea what causes this. So far i tried reinstalling one of the games, i ran a bunch of memtests overnight and am generally helpless right now.

    -Whenever it happens my screen goes black and i get a tiny message from the screen itself that would appear aswell whenever i just power the screen. I can still hear ingame sound, but only the ambient sound. Everything like movement or attack sounds are gone. There is no FPS loss or anything indicating the issue, it just shuts down and i have to restart the PC to get any control back.

    -The issue seems to appear with games that are a little more "complex" (Dead by Daylight, League of Legends) as it didnt happen with simpler games (Hearthstone). It doesnt seem to matter that a game is in fullscreen, borderless or windowed, as it still crashes without fail.

    I really hope someone can point me into the right direction here. If there is anything i can do to help the diagnosis, I'll gladly do it. I dont even know if its a software or hardware problem so far and if its fixable or not.
