My computer crashes in just a few minutes while playing Overwatch 2 and Halo Infinite. Before I deleted League of Legends, my comp would crash the same way, but it was much less frequent. When my computer crashes, the last frame is frozen on my screen with a buzzing noise coming from my speakers. I believe this is a RAM issue because other threads have mentioned it. My computer also has a history of RAM issues. For my computer to start, I had to change RAM settings in my bios. DRAM Frequency DDR4-2400 MHz to 2133MHz, DRAM Voltage from 1.2012 to 1.3530, and DRAM Command Rate from Auto to 2N. I got these changes from a previous thread I made. I have also reverted to previous GeForce drivers incase that would help. I'm currently on 522.25.
I want to fix this before I start using my comp for 3D work when winter break starts and migrate my work from my university's computers to mine. I don't want my projects to crash while I'm working on them or rendering.
