  1. Hey, my computer freezes and the screen goes black, and i have to manually restart it, its happening while im playing games like, TF2, Dead Rising 2, Gta Iv and League of legends when i run it on max graphic, but it doesnt happen when i play Cod on max graphic, so i cant understand whats the problem is, and it started to happen around 2 weeks ago, and had no problem with it before that.
    I have also reformated my computer and it still happens?

    Your video card is probably overheating. Try lowering the settings on all those games down to minimum and see if the problem persists.
