Why did launch crash my pc

So i was watching tutorials on blueprint and when I clicked launch game, it was loading the 3d assets but it took forever and my pc crashed, it took me to a blue screen with a sad face that it will restart after it collects information. When i run dx diag no problems are detected, my devices are up to date.

Hey AnaheimPunk,

In order to better assist you, could you please provide the following information:

  • Version of UE4 that you’re on
  • Your computer DXDiag logs
  • Please provide any recently saved logs from your project that you were working on, they should be within the project folder underneath a saved folder
  • Are you able to open UE4Editor.exe without crashing by going to: D:\Epic Games\4.8\Engine\Binaries\Win64

You can easily provide these .txt files to us by attaching them to your next reply.

Looking forward to hearing back from you, thanks! :slight_smile:
