Windows 10: Computer randomly reboots when I play games.

  1.    07 Apr 2016 #1

    Computer randomly reboots when I play games.


    I get random restarts when playing games.
    Is this something to do with windows 10 or Nvidia?

    Not great with computers but I've only been having this problem the past week or so.

    I have done a clean reboot and all that but it keeps happening.

    Here are some errors I get in Event Viewer:


    • Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x80070643: Definition Update for Windows Defender - KB2267602 (Definition 1.217.854.0).
    • Driver install failed, result=0x80004005 for devnode 'SAITEK\PROGRAMMABLEDEVICE\7&69BEA2F&0'
    • The DSM service was delayed by 12 seconds for a driver query/download/install on device 'SAITEK\PROGRAMMABLEDEVICE\7&69BEA2F&0'
    • The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

    Jamie, your rig MIGHT be overheating. If it's a desktop, turn it off, open it and blow it out with some compressed air. If it's a laptop, put your finger over the exit vent to make sure you have airflow. Either way, turn it off and give short burst of canned air into the exit vent.
