My computer crashed while playing Heist on Backwoods with a red screen.

I know this isn't customer support but this forum is largely a PC crowd and I thought they should be the first to know. Is that one of many ways Hardline crashes on computers and forces a reboot? It was a completely red screen and a long buzzing sound played before the computer shut down. If anyone wants to know my specs I would be happy to post them.

had that a lot of times, it is not directly related to hardline, presumably it's gpu or cpu over heat, run a monitoring program while playing, and see what temperatures it reaches, usually for amd componenets the crash temperatures are about 100+ - C for the gpu and 70 for the cpu(i think? usually my gpu reaches crash temperatures much earlier than cpu, so i dunno), at least that is my case, various fixes include:
cleaning your pc, applying new thermal paste, downclocking your hardware, limiting the fps and game quality, buying new hardware.

but first of all check if it actually is an overheating issue(it probably is by the way you described it)

it may also be a driver or voltage issue, maybe you overclocked your cpu too heavily? after i lowered my fx6300 overclock from 4 to about 3.8, i got a lot less of this kind of pc crash, but they still happen sometimes, although very rarely, now the issue i'm having after buying a ps4 is that my screen when playing youtube videos on pc seems to be giving kind of a scanlines issue when something moves(very noticable if slow scrolling or by moving the cursor when a video is on background)
weird shit, but it doesn't happen while playing games iirc, so i don't bother too much with it.

I think I had my Radeon Settings Profile Overdrive too high. It's an OEM machine so it is crippled as is. I'm going to build a new PC.

Actually I got another red screen from loading a game of Heist on Dustbowl. I don't what I am doing wrong when I reset my overdrive settings and changed the resolution so that the game runs at 30fps.
