PC shuts down or reboots while playing PUBG


We will tell you all possible solutions if your computer shuts down or reboots while playing PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS.

What to do if your computer reboots while playing PUBG?

Step 1: Make sure your PC is not overheating

Make sure your computer components are working within their operating temperature range. First, you must ensure that your processor and graphics card are not overheating. If these components overheat, the protection may activate and restart your PC.


If you have confirmed overheating, you need to fix the cause. Clean dust from the processor and video card heat sinks and fans, and replace the old thermal paste. Also, ensure that all the fans in the case are working correctly and that there is airflow to remove heat from the case. The computer should not be in a confined space or too close to a wall.

Step 2: Check the Power Supply


If everything is fine with the component temperatures, you need to pay attention to the power supply. There are two possibilities. First – the power supply is fully operational, but there is insufficient power to run all the components. Second – the power supply has reached the end of its life and needs to be replaced.

Step 3: Update Microsoft Visual C++

Now that we know the hardware is okay, we can move on to other things. Install the most recent version of Microsoft Visual C++. This is a working solution to the problem that has helped many users, including the author of this article. You can download the Microsoft Visual C++ installer from this link.
