Windows 10: Random Crashes Whilst Using Steam - Help Needed!
Random Crashes Whilst Using Steam - Help Needed!
Hi Guys, So whenever I'm using Steam or anything related to it such as games I have random crashes. Everything just goes black then little message saying Power Saving Mode Initiated (or something similar). It reboots and then about 20 minutes later it restarts the cycle. I have no idea what is causing them but it is very annoying as team has a glitch, where if Steam is interrupted randomly whilst writing things on a disk when the system reboots it doesn't recognize any games as being installed. Which is very annoying as I have to 'reinstall' the games even though they are quite clearly installed- this is tedious because the main reason I use my computer is to game on it. Anyway, any help with the crashes thing would be much appreciated.
Thanks Again, Fergus.
Some problem with your Radeon driver it looks like. The one you have is dated Wed Nov 04 16:37:08 2015
Your driver version is 15.201.1151.1008, 16.6.2 is available. Give it a try.

Didn't Work - Found Soloution
Nah that didn't work unfortunately but after checking the event logger i found that an 'Error 41 Kernal-Power' thing was the issue. After some light researching i found a solution on YouTube. Thanks For Your Help Anyway
Thanks Again, Fergus
What was the solution please? Provide link or just use your own words.
