Game crash causing Windows restart

Hi guys,

Somebody I know was complaining that after he updated his mobo and cpu
that the game Dragon Age: Inquisition wouldn't start for him. Obviously
the computer runs, so he got that far, but his problem is that when the
game starts to load, it doesn't just CTD, it RESTARTS WINDOWS.

What do you think his problem is?

What do you think his problem is?
Before the handheld "age" places like BestBuy had a spell where games
were considered by the pre-assembled industry (HP, Compaq, etc.) - as
either for "make or break 'em," sales/profit wise. Today 50%, at
least, of households play games -- lots avoiding the build/pc hassles
with a dedicated game console.

Games indeed are demanding and may require extensive troubleshooting
thruout soft and hardware.

"its latest title is protected by Denuvo's latest DRM system"

It says here, the people behind it are DRM veterans, but that
the scheme was cracked in two weeks of work. That doesn't
mean a public crack is available though, to stop the system-affecting
problems.

"3DM... has suggested that Denuvo Anti-Tamper employs a "64-bit
encryption machine" that requires cryptographic keys unique to
the specific hardware of the installed system.[3]"

"needs to detect a variety of hardware information on your computer"

So that's why changing the motherboard, upset it. The
NIC MAC address will have changed.

And the fact it is crashing the OS, tells you it's
"more rootkit magic". No wonder paying customers
install the cracked versions of games.

It would be interesting to see if Denuvo is white-listed
in AV or rootkit detection software. I don't expect
it would get flagged, and it's probably a waste of
time testing for that. If an AV removed the rootkit,
it would only break the game.

Computers don't crash, if they haven't been tampered with.
