I built a very entry level machine for my brother in-law to casual game on. The games of interest to him are Minecraft, Black Ops 2, & Counter-Strike Global Offensive.
I chose the the APU A8-6600k for the integrated graphics in the hopes as he grows he could always install a dedicated video card.
The issue that we are having that while *attempting* to play Black Ops 2 or Counter-Strike Global Offensive he gets either a red screen or a blue screen followed by the machine rebooting.
No error codes, only thing that shows in computer management is and unsafe restart of the system.
I tried backing out the latest catalyst drivers to version 13.xx to no avail, updated mobo BIOS, and updated chipset drivers.
The plus side would be that Minecraft with settings maxed out achieves a nice smooth 60-70 FPS.
Has anyone else crossed this bridge that could keep me from pulling all of my hair out?
