Hey, another question :\ When I'm playing LoL or some game, just any game, my computer would just freeze completely. No sound, nothing, no mouse movements, no keyboard movements. Nothing moves. Only thing I can do is press the power button or restart button and it will reboot. Idk whats' wrong with it, can you help me with this? It doesn't blue screen or anything but sometimes when it freezes like that the screen would go to a blue screen so I don't know. It happens a lot when I'm playing games.

Games I play that it happens on;
League of Legends
Counterstrike Global Offensive

Either the PSU is not adequate power, or the GPU is not able to use the power, or any issue with the motherboard.

For the first try, replace the PSU with a known good one.

My friend said it couldn't be any of those because I've had my computer for around 1 and a half years now and been playing games since then and it only started a couple of months ago?

Good
Continue with your friend.

Your friend is a real source of knowledge. Please ask him why I am sneezing over last few hours when I did not sneeze even in the last night?

Arc,

If I could make a suggestion, perhaps you need to check your system for a buildup of dust and debris, that may cause sneezing, and of course could also lead to system overheating and resultant freezing whilst under load

Thank you Nigel, very good point, I admit.

Dust allocation is a function of time, as depreciation of hardware is. Over one and half an year, dust allocation is most possible, and that will cause suffocation, which will in turn result in a increase in system temperature. A sufficient reason for a BSOD, but it usually does not cause a STOP 0x000000BE: ATTEMPTED_WRITE_TO_READONLY_MEMORY BSOD, as far as I have seen. And that is why I never noted the dust and heat part, though I had to consider it, too.

But, hardware ran good for some years, that cannot be the argument against todays hardware failure. Rather it is an argument for it .... it served good, and now with age it can fail. That is the law of nature.

Hi guys, another thing happened last night. My computer froze up - like it always does, freezes completely. I have recently just cleaned the dust from my parts by opening it up. turned it back on and it loaded up and then went to a BSOD that said "please check if you have enough space ______________"? A whole paragraph of writing, it was too fast to remember it all.

I'm not sure if it caught on with the minidump because for some reason it's not there but I hope it's in the SF thing; attaching it now.

Thank you for all the help everyone. Especially you Arc!

Also, I think I may sometimes get BSOD's because right now, it's quite hot in Australia and my room gets quite stuffy. I have a fan that really only fans me and not my tower which is somewhat in a corner so that might be a problem too?

You set a kernel dump recording? We suggest minidumps.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Disc Space is a factor. You have only 12.88 GBs free in C drive. Hard Disk Space - Free Up and Recover

If you think that temps is an issue, let us check. Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Cleared out like 33gb of C drive! We'll see what happens now. This is a relatively cold day today so temperature isn't that high, I'll show you an updated speccy in future when it's like 30 something degrees! Thank you for your reply once again Arc!
