    WOT and Spotify conflict?


    This computer has been crashing more than usual lately and it's been happening when I play World of Tanks while listening to music. Sometimes Teamspeak is also involved.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Edit: Well I lasted about 30 minutes before crashing, here is the latest as well if you want to compare lol

    With a crash you mean a freeze crash or a shutdown crash?

    What is the support page of your motherboard? Your BIOS is dating 2008 so I'm wondering if there is support provided for Windows 10, but I can't find it.

    Both happen. The screen is there but nothing can move. Sometimes there is a nasty noise to accompany it until I turn it off Other times is shuts down by itself. No keys, pointers, mice, or ANYTHING other than the power button works.

    I haven't seen a BIOS or driver update to my motherboard since long before Windows 10 came out lol.

    It's an EVGA 790iUltra. here is the download page: EVGA - Download Center

    It is possible that your motherboard has become incompatible with Windows 10.

    Because there are no BSOD crashes we (those who help in the BSOD section) can't help you much because the freeze & shutdown crashes don't leave much behind that can help troubleshoot it except for an event ID 41 meaning there was an unexpected power problem which is essentially useless.

    Oh so a complete inop computer is different than a bsod? I get both lol.

    Ok, thanks. Nice to know thta the manufacturers and MS are working hand in hand to obselete perfectly serviceable equipment.

    So I need to go back to unsupported Vista so my MoBo will work, but then the headset doesn't have VISTA drivers (and as such will cause a crash) or build a new machine?

    Sounds like I got an iPad by mistake. Thanks MS.

    Of course the *unexpected power problem* couldn't be the universal *fix* that MS added to one of their updates to manage my non existant battery consumption could it?

    How about a new power supply?

    A freeze or shutdown are different from a BSOD, if I had to be honest I would say they aren't system crashes (they are crashes, but not in the way that Windows can do something to prevent problems) because they are unexpected and can't save logs or something other than an unexpected power problem because either there is no time or the system can't do it because it can't respond.
    With a BSOD it saves the data from the memory because it has the time to do so, a BSOD is the net of Windows to prevent anything from becoming corrupted.

    I lieve that up to you, it isn't my call what you do with your system, I only provide suggestions and possible solutions to make a system more stable :)

    Of course the *unexpected power problem* couldn't be the universal *fix* that MS added to one of their updates to manage my non existant battery consumption could it?
    Could you elaborate of what you mean exactly?

    How about a new power supply?
    I don't know what PSU you're using, so I can't say anything helpful (yet) for this question.

    Please fill in your system specs
    Please follow this tutorial and download the tool. The tool will give you detailed information about your system specs, please fill in your system specs more completely including PSU, cooling system and other used stuff. PSU, cooling system and other used stuff are NOT mentioned in the tool.
