Game crashes entire system, screens go black, all sound stops, requires hard reset
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I can play from anywhere between 5 min to 30 min then my screen just goes black and goes into power saving mode which means it lost video signal and at the same time all sound cuts off. Operating system itself stops as can tell that I am no longer online when this happens. Nothing works after this point but the pc stays on and requires a hard reset to work again. This happens every time I've ever tried to play the game.
