Hey. I've had my PC for 8 years, I just changed RAM-s 1 year ago. Everything was fine, but now suddenlly around 2 weeks ago my PC keeps dying while playing games. While playing the screen suddenly turns to black, but I can still hear everything for a like 5-10 seconds. Then I can only see the black screen and I have to hold the power button to turn it off and on again. This keeps repeating. Firstly it only happened a few times, but now I can't get past PUBG-s main menu, even though it was working fine like 2 weeks ago. Also I just re-installed windows, with clearing data but it didnt help. :/

GPU: Gtx 960 2gb
CPU: Intel I5-4460
RAM: 8 gb

Any solutions please?

Please list the specs to your build like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:
Monitor:

6 years is a long time for a PSU to deliver power to your entire platform. That might be the root of your issues. Can you get into BIOS and remain there indefinitely? While here, please see what your current BIOS version is for your motherboard.

I just re-installed windows
Where did you source the installer for your OS? Did you recreate the installer to rule out a corrupt installer?
