    Hello everyone,
    Ive recently installed Windows 10 to my pc. Now, when I play a game it usally takes 20-30 minutes wether the game says that the files are damaged or missing and put in the lobby or titlescreen again or it crashes.
    Latest Graphic Card drivers are installed, latest W10 version....Please help me I dont want to go to a random PC Guy who scams me and wants a lot of money.
    Thank you for responding! 443582b1f748373db81e04d84de961cd.gif


    (I dont know if this is helpful but sometimes my chrome crashes and the page couldnt be displayed. Before re-installing W10 I had the same Issue and one time my screen got blue and it crashed and said memory cache problem.)
    Specs:
    i5-7500
    Geforce GTX 1050
    12 GB RAM (1 4GB and 1 8GB Stick) I think thats the problem
    MSI H110 ECO

    Depending on which game is affected & whether it is a Microsoft or third party game it may be a case that it’s no longer compatible.
    You can try compatibility mode (Windows 8) & see if that setting makes it work.
    Have you tried uninstalling & reinstalling the game?

    Are the two memory sticks exactly the same - from the same manufacturer, same speed etc? If they’re different speeds &/or manufacturers then that could be the problem. To test remove the 4GB stick & see what happens, if the same then return the 4GB stick & remove the 8GB & test again.

    Hi Bastet,
    Ye the games are compatible, and reinstalling didnt help. Its been a while since i bought the sticks but i think they are frome the same manufacturer. When i can try it ill let you know. Is it dangerous to just remove them or do I need to do smth?
    Thanks for responding ;)

    There’s no problem with removing one memory module. Just make sure you earth yourself by touching something metal before opening the PC & removing the memory.
    Crucial has a memory scanner to see if they’re both exactly the same: https://www.crucial.com/
