Artifacts showing up on my screen and computer freezing during gaming

HP Recommended
Omen Obelisk
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Whenever I play games, my computer freezes with artifacts showing up on the screen. 

I have to restart the computer, this happens when playing any game (such as Firewatch, Fallout 4, etc)

@asd1231 Welcome to HP Community!

 

I understand that the omen desktop freezing.

 

Do not worry. I will try to fix the issue.

 

There are many ways to increase FPS and system performance: 

  • Update the BIOS. 

For desktop PCs, go to HP Desktop PCs - Updating the BIOS

For notebook PCs, go to HP Notebook PCs - Updating the BIOS 

  • Update the graphics driver. 

Go to HP Customer Support - Software and Driver Downloads, enter your PC model, then select the driver for your graphics card. 

  • Most games allow you to change the graphics settings. Using a lower graphic quality often improves FPS. 

  • Close any applications or programs that are not being used. 

  • Turn on Game Mode. Game Mode is a new feature in Windows 10 Creators Update that improves gaming performance by limiting background processes and programs from using system resources while a game is running.
