Computer Freezing while playing Video Games

Recommended Posts

This is MOSTLY occurring while playing MGS5 The Phantom Pain, however it does happen on occasion while playing other games.

 

 

The game seems to freeze about 10-30 minutes into the play time every time, and its getting extremely difficult to play, I have to do a hard reset every time it freezes. It leaves me unable to play. I cannot alt tab out, close the program, nothing, it requires a hard reset every time.

 

Would anyone know what is going on, and what they can do to help? Its starting to impair my gaming.

A clean computer is a happy computer.

Malewarebytes + crapcleaner + a decent AV + turn off FB and plug that cable in to connect to the internetz.

 

Other than that I've no idea where your problem lies.

Also literally he should physically clean his pc. Could well be overheating.

Happened to me. For a while I played with the patio door open but in the end I had to open her up and clean.

First off have you checked to see if you have any potatoes in your expansion slots? Maybe Anne of Green Gables browses porn on your box when you aren't home? Eh? Nothing? 

 

In all seriousness, shit like that is usually caused by any combination of three things: Heat, Failing Hardware, Bad Drivers. 

 

First thing i would check is to see if there was a game ready driver for Phantom Pain. After that check your temps while running the game, and then third go through the arduous process of stress testing your hardware.....

So ive updated my drivers, they are all good now.

 

Ive cleaned out the computer with a spray can (which was safe for it).

 

The hardware is pretty new, in other words, I got this computer around christmas time last year.

 

 

 

And...im still having problems :(

simple thing: format your harddisk/ ssd, reinstall os & software. problem gone, nice. problem not gone: either your hardware is broken or simply too old for your games. if so, seek someone who trades his knowledge against your money.

 

sorry, but with that little knowledge and that kind of problem you wont get serious help via a forum.
