My computer crashes every time I play a game

The screen will go into vertical lines of two different colors and the sound will buzz and then fade. This happens every time I play a game. I've checked the temperatures and they're fine, I've reinstalled the games after removing their files and I've done tests for malware and viruses. Is there anything left that I can do?

  5. One thing that strikes me is the psu,might not have enough power to keep things running when playing games.Can you test with another one? Maybe from a friend or local shop ...

    Other thing might be the older gpu starting to give in.Again can you test with another one? ...

    If using the latest drivers might want to delete them and use previous,see if they work better with this card,i'm talking about 14.12 up to the 15.11 non Crimson drivers ,well from that time.

    Can work your way back,but i would look at the hardware first.

    It turns out that it only really crashes when I play League of Legends so if I play a different game like Overwatch or CS:GO it works fine but if I play League it crashes.
  7. Tried reinstalling the game? Have latest patches?
    Tried older drivers?
