GamesCrashing

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop 15-cx0xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

This laptop is great. It could run most games pretty smoothly without any issues but recently almost all the games I could easily play are now crashing. From my understanding the only difference between now and then is that before the laptop actually put in resources to run the games and heated up as necessary  but now my laptop just gets a little warm and my games crash because they aren't getting run properly by my laptop. Please help!

Specs:

NVidia GTX 1050ti

Intel Core i5

8GB RAM

@Yarnish Click here for steps to resolve overheating issues, you could try reducing the resolution on the in-game settings and switch the windows settings to performance rather than visual effects to make a minor change, however, the game may heat up your PC, hence make sure you are using a cooling pad as well, to be on a safer side.

 

Here's how you change windows settings:

  • Go to Start Menu > click on Settings.
  • Type performance > choose to Adjust the appearance and performance of Windows.
  • In the new window, go to the Visual Effects and select Adjust for best performance.
  • click Apply and Ok...this should do the trick.
