    Games stop working after 1-10 min and sends me back to Desktop.


    A while ago (about 3 weeks) I started having problems with games that just cuts off and sends me back to the desktop. It happens in many different games like Black Desert Online, Age of Empires, World of tanks, And the last one I tried was The Witcher 2. that I installed to check if it happened also to locally installed games and yes it did. I also got a lot of BSOD at witch point I did a clean install of Windows 10 Home 64 bit. The BSOD has almost stopped and the computer seems to work fine under web-use, watching films, running office apps and so on but as soon as I launch a game after just a few minutes it cuts of and sends me back to Desktop. No freezing or slowing down it just staggers once or twice and then I'm back to my desktop again. I've installed earlier drivers to my GC (May 19) that didn't do anything. My windows have the latest updates. I have done test with an app called heavy load that doesn't show anything strange. I'm running out of ideas here.

    Are you watching temps, it may be overheating.

    Yes I thought of that too but it happens even if the computer is just started. But if you can recomend any good app for monitoring temps I'd gladly accept it.

    I found a program called OpenHardwareMonitor. It showed 41c on the GPU when Age of Empires quit. This time it didnt even start before it stopped.

    Its not measuring CPU temp alas only load witch is very low. 5 to 20 percent. it keeps getting werse. Today even my mail program quit and the games don't even start. Not Steam or Origin either. Also the BSOD has reappeared. And they have a different message every time it seems.

    5 hard drives - I'd suggest checking the power supply. The best test is by trying another PSU, but there's a PSU test in this free program: OCBASE / OCCT
    FYI - I suggest other tests with this program later on in this post.......

    BIOS/UEFI dates from 2018 - please check at the Asus support site for your model to see if there are updates available. If so, please install them.

    5 memory dumps, 5 different BSOD errors (0x124; 0xFC; 0x7E; 0xA; 0x12E)
    Most often this is a symptom of a hardware problem, BUT, it can be caused by lower level drivers also (not as common).

    I suggest starting with these free hardware diagnostics:
    1) Memtest86 (not 86+): MemTest86 - Official Site of the x86 Memory Testing Tool

    2) SeaGate SeaTools for Windows (test ALL hard drives - HDD/SSD/USB/etc): How to use SeaTools for Windows | Seagate Support US

    3) Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool: Download Intel(R) Processor Diagnostic Tool
    Disregard if not using an Intel processor

    4) Furmark stress test for GPU: FurMark > Downloads
    Read the instructions carefully and watch your system when testing.
    If it starts spitting out problems and you can't shut it down - simply turn the system off/unplug it from the wall

    5) OCCT: OCBASE / OCCT
    Read the instructions carefully and watch your system when testing.
    If it starts spitting out problems and you can't shut it down - simply turn the system off/unplug it from the wall

    If none of these tests find anything, please post back (with the results) and we'll try some other things (software and hardware tests).

    Good luck!

    Hello and thanks for responding!
    3 of my 5 HD are external with their own power supply so I don't think that is the problem. I did the OCCT5.3.1 test and the memory test with 0 errors. I'll continue with the rest. BSOD are continuing to come in.
