My computer crashes every time I’m trying to create a thief. As soon as I press the icon of this profession, no matter which race I’ve chosen, I get a black screen and a “brrrr” sound from the speakers, forcing me to do a hard reset. The same thing can also happen in game while playing one of the characters I have managed to create, though this is very random. It can happen after 10min of playing of after several hours.
Some of the things I have tried are:
- No errors in DxDiag
- No errors using memtest86
- Have removed the “Realtech” driver
- Tried this: Start /Controle panel/System and security/power management/The schedule settings/Change advanced power settings/PCI Express/Link state power management/turn this off.
- Likely not a temperature issue – computer cleaned last week, all fans are working, using GPUTemp for monitoring (temp is about 40-60 C), using a “Cooler Master” case and crashes (after standing the whole night cooling down) in the morning even if it is the first thing I try to do.
