Hi, Just would like to know why my computer keeps crashing when playing games, as my games are installed on the F Drive and I can't defrag the F drive all the way (It stops at about one third of the way?  Or is it the graphics card? As I have used Furmark to stress test the graphics card and it worked fine. Thanks.

What type of drive is it? SSD or HDD?

Could be any of a 1/2 a dozen things, but the defrag does suggest a drive problem.

 

Need a lot more info, but start with a full checkdisk as described here

http://www.howtogeek...-windows-vista/

Applies to XP, Vista, 7 and 8.

If the drive is large (1Tb or bigger) this can take 7 or 8 hours so set it to run overnight if possible.

 

If the PC is more than a year old also check for dust blocking the CPU cooler and video card cooler, causing an overheat shutdown.


Of course you are my bright little star,

I've miles and miles of files pretty files of your forefather's fruit,

and now to suit our great computer. You're magnetic ink.
