Playing almost any game results in crashes, most recent Warhammer chaosbane and inquisitor martyr - freezing forever while ingame sound still works fine. Many games in the past crashing at random time intervals, not sure is its old pc or what is causing it.

pc specs
i5-6600k
gtx 1070
16gb ram

PSU: make, model, wattage, age, condition (original, new, refurbished, used)?

Disk drives: make, model, capacity, how full?

Any errors being captured in Reliability History and/or Event Viewer that correspond with the times of the crashes?

A six year old PSU would be, almost automatically, at the top of my suspect list.

Very likely nearing (or even past) its' designed in EOL (End of Life). Despite its' immediate physical appearance......

Are you able to obtain another known working equivalent PSU to swap in and test to determine if the crashes continue?

If not, there may be the possibility that some earlier crash caused file corruption.

Try "sfc /scannow" and "dism"

If nothing found/fixed then work to get another PSU to install and test.

This psu has 10 year warranty tho could it still be at the end of life? Am building new pc, still don't have new psu so don't have anything to test this out. After new pc done i want sell old one to someone rdy to game with no issues and crashes is one big issue rn.

sfc /scannow said it found and repaired some corrupted files, will see if it helped.

Not sure what to do with "dism" it opens bunch of commands, link you given do not work.

Intermittent loose connection is another possibility.

Power down, unplug, open the case.

Clean out dust and debris.

Verify by sight and feel that all connectors, cards, RAM, and jumpers are fully and firmly in place.

Use a bright flashlight to inspect for signs of damage: bare conductor showing, melted insulation, browned or blackened components/surfaces, pinched or kinked wires, swollen components, loose brackets.

= = = =

As for the 10 warranty the "what", "why", and "how" requires very careful reading of the fine print.....
