I have a serious issue I have no idea what to call it.

I was just playing a game like usual., then my screen goes purple then brown., then finally black and nothing happens. When I try to restart the pc I get what you can see in the images. I'm using my phone so I have no idea how to add the other pictures., because I try it just uploads nothing =/. Urgh I am so lost without a computer.

Hello mate now first up take seem of the overclocking off and to see what you have in the way of components in the machine see this - use PART B:
Using HW Info
PART A:
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic. In my pic the section (Nuvoton) with VBATT is a dead give away you are in the section for the rail voltages. There are other section titles and one that pops up often is ITE
Now the voltage on the different rails have to be within 5% =+/- of what is required or the machine will not work properly if at all.
Limits +/-
12v = 11.4 12.6v
5v = 4.74 5.25v
3.3v = 3.135 3.465v
The Power good signal voltage at pin 8 on the 24 pin plug (grey cable) should be the same as the 5v rail reading/s
See this for the rail voltage info
Power Supply 101: A Reference Of Specifications - Power Supplies (Section 2.)
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
PART B:
Open each small square with + in it on the section the components are in and then click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that particular device. See pic for example.

I just had another try at this. Just click random things till i found it lol... Here is a picture of the volts. I hope.

I have also added a picture of my screen now. It seems to go back to full screen every now and then when i reset the pc. But if i try to run any type of Game, the pc will crash and i get a purple or brown screen before it turns black.

Ok mate that is exactly what I wanted to see and the rail volts are ok the Vbatt which is usually the CMOS battery that sits in the board should read approx 3v it is the battery that hods the BIOS in place.
Now personally I would be testing that battery with a digital multimeter and if it is that low I would replace it with a new one. That means of course the BIOS settings will be back to default and will need restting back to where you were. .

Hey,

Not to go the complete opposite way to your advice lol. But just letting you know i purchased a GTX980ti last night at it has now fixed my problem. I figured i was in need of an upgrade anyway. So took the chance now, and it worked out.

No problems mate because the next steps I was going to suggest was testing the hard drive and more so the GPU!! - in fact testing that would have given up the answer in fact
