Every time I start a game my computer crashes a few minutes into it

Every time I start a game my computer crashes a few minutes into it, just suddenly stops with the sound jumping, and I cant do anything. I restart the computer using the button etc, start windows as normal, I load the game back up and then its fine, runs smoothly with no problem, but this 'process' I have to go through happens every time. Can anybody tell me how I can stop it/fix it so it runs smoothly every time?

    I have this issue with my PC now. I took it to my local repair shop for a free diagnostic to see if my motherboard's PCIE slot was faulty.
  4. Go to dell's website and look there, also try starting your game in windowed mode without the GPU.
