I am currently having trouble when playing games and keep getting an error of "0xc0000005". This is happening whenever I play a game for more than 5 minutes. The game starts normal and about five minutes later it freezes and crashes the game. I have tested GoW, BF 2042, Forza 5, CoD Vanguard & Warzone. I have ran Heaven Benchmark for 20-30 minutes and no issues of it crashing. I have looked into videos on how to fix this and some are stating DEP could be causing it? I'm not sure to be honest. Any help would be wonderful. Thank you!

I did run Windows Memory Diagnostic and nothing came up.
My ssd Drives are pretty much empty with only one game and normal software from new computer.

Thank you for any help!


By crashing do you mean the system reboots or that the games close and take you to desktop's GUI? Where did you source the installer for the games and OS from? Have you used Samsung's Magician tool to make sure your SSD's firmware's are up to date? As a side note, what BIOS version are you on for your motherboard?
