Within the last week or two, my computer has begun crashing to black screen while playing a game. The computer is still running, fans going, but the screen goes black with a click noise as the audio dies and no input will do anything. Only thing to do is turn the power off then reboot the computer. It only does this during a specific game and only recently started this behavior after more than a year of playing the same game. I have blown out the dust from the case. I am checking the CPU and GPU temps during the game, but they are not spiking that I can tell (gpu usually in 65-68 C range). All the drivers, except the two I can't figure out where they are (Intel management and security local and intel watchdog timer), are up to date. I am clueless at this point. Sometimes it will happen two or three times in a row immediately after the computer is started for the first time that day and only playing for about 15-20 mins each time, other times it will go for several hours before crashing or even the rest of the day.
