    Windows 7 x64 Bit
    Processor: AMD FX(tm)-9590 Eight-Core Processor, 4715 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
    RAM: 16.0 GB
    Graphics card: AMD Radeon R9 200 Series (My computer won't specify which of the 200 series)
    Hard drive holds 1 TB


    My computer isn't the best of the best but I don't think I should have problems gaming with it. When I play games like Paragon, Dying Light, Crysis 3, it crashes. It will just freeze and then the screen will go black and say "Monitor going to sleep." Even when those games are on the lowest settings it will still crash. I can play games like Squad, CS:GO, Diablo 3, and more without any problem. I even have a Corsair H100i to help with cooling, and 4 fans (2 on front, 2 up top about radiator). Any idea on what could be the issue? Maybe a better hard drive would help? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks very much!

    you have to decide what is the problem "software" or hardware"
    check in "device manager" for conflicts
    check in task manager for performance of cpu and memory usage
    check you have to correct drivers installed on the video graphics card.
    get into power options and reset the power plan you desire.
