Not too sure where I can start with troubleshooting an issue I’m having – open to any/all suggestions.
PC is a couple of years old and up until a few weeks ago, it has been running without issue.
Recently the machine will die and instantly reboot – as if the power has been switched off then on again. No OS crash/dumps/logs. It only occurs when playing games – but I cannot re-create the issue at will. For example, I could play Apex Legends for 2 hours straight and not have one crash. Then I could fire up another game and it happens in the first 3 minutes.
It doesn’t seem to be linked to any specific game. The machine can sit idle/browsing the internet and has not crashed.
So my thoughts are something GFX or PSU related – there’s no BSOD or crash screen to make me think it’s an OS failure. OS and GFX drivers are up to date – the only recent change is a new, bigger monitor but the problems started several weeks after that was setup.
Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this other than swapping out parts?
