Hello,

I have this thing that is happening in the past several months - games I play suddenly stop and I'm thrown back into windows. No error messages. It happens suddenly, in different games, as if I was shutting them the task manager.

How can I fix this?

Thank you

Have you tried reinstalling your graphics drivers?
You can also try monitoring your GPU temperatures to make sure it’s not overheating (I doubt that is the issue, but better check)

I updated the GPU drivers a few times since it first happened, to no avail.

I check the GPU and CPU with OCCT for a few minutes each test, temps were good and no errors discovered.
