Question Computer Restarts After Closing Game

Hello,

I am having issues with my computer restarting after closing various games, mainly the Prepar3d Flight Simulator.

I have replaced the thermal paste, cleaned all of the fans, removed the battery from the mobo to reset it, updated windows and my graphics driver. I am pretty sure it is not an overheat issue at this point, but I could be wrong. Looking for any and all suggestions to try.

My specs are as follows -

I7-9700k running the 4.9 out of box turbo
Corsair Vengence LPX 16gb (2x8gb) DDR4 2666mhz
RTX 2060 Super 8gb
MSI Z370 Gaming Plus mobo
Corsair CX C750M 750W 80 Plus Bronze
Corsair Hydro Series H100i Platinum 120mm Liquid Cooling

Hello awilks01,

I am sorry you have issues with your PC. I would suggest to install Windows again but on a different partition. This way you will have all your games and files on the older partition. You can also delete the boot files off the old partition and launch your games off the old partition.

Hope this helps,
Naly A
