    Hi Nubble6,

    TSG is an all-volunteer site so there is no guaranteed response time. You are allowed to "bump" your post once every 24 hours.

    That being said, the critical error in Event Viewer is what we will want to focus on. It sounds like your system is losing power or causing Windows to shut down/restart unexpectedly.

    What things specifically cause the restart to happen? It may be an overheating issue.

    Speccy
    • Download and run Speccy.
    • Click the Summary tab and wait for the information to load.
    • Follow the information here to publish a screenshot of the information.
    • Provide the URL of the screenshot given to you in your next post.
    Run Speccy and let it sit in the background reading your component temperatures.

    Then launch a game that causes a restart, and before your system restarts return to your Desktop and take the screenshot of Speccy.

    Alright I'll try and get to it later, for now I'm actually having problems getting my computer to start up. For now it's turning on and then when it's about to start up it crashes and then says that I need to run the windows repair function. It has done this to me before but if I ran the repair it would usually fix itself. Not it is not fixing itself. I'll try a couple things and hopefully they work. Thanks for the reply.

    This behavior is likely related to Windows repeatedly shutting down unexpectedly. Windows does not like shutting down improperly. ;)

    As you mentioned, please try the Startup Repair option and if that does not work we can begin troubleshooting the new problem.

    Alrighty guys, I appreciate the help, but I got everything worked out. So as for the startup repair I ended up getting a system restore point to work. Also for my crashing issue I just needed to change out my PSU, as I think the 12 volt rail was failing. So I am all good now. Thanks for the advise, hopefully this post can help someone else later down the road.
