So here is story, i have super duper potato pc,but atleast it was able to run GTA 5 without any lags,freezes. but yesterday while playing,the pc randomly shut down, i thought GPU was overheating but turned out no,then i checked if there was any dust or something and pc turned out to be clean. so turned on pc and this time it started turning off randomly and whenever i started the game, here is the video of it doing this.
the monitor just turns off and i am able to hear game sounds until it shows starting hud. i thought it was monitors fault changed monitor but nah.
(ignore WW2 noises in video,not only my pc but my phone sucks too lmao)

try and clean some stuff off the C:\ drive too.
CCleaner from Piriform can help with this.

also run sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt to check for system file corruption.
and while at the command prompt also run chkdsk c: /r to check for and repair disk errors.

after all that, reboot the PC into Safe mode and see what the memory says.
generally use the PC in Safe Mode (you won't be able to the the game) and see if it plays up.

looks like a faulty hard drive.
if you deem the PC worth it, I'd be replacing the hard drive, even upgrading to a solid state drive.
you'd then be up for reloading Windows and all your software and recovering the data off the old drive.

Hello,thank you so much for trying to support me <3.
even thought i reinstalled windows,it kept doing same. so i took it to tech,tech took pc to diagnose, and he didn't do anything actually, he removed video card from pc and turned on told us video card was broken and noone would'be able to fix it and took 30$(which is solid money if you transfer it to local currency).

while i took it to home,my older brother arrived,showed him problem and he immediatly diagnosed problem, my video card and motherboard just couldn't get with each other,so he took old video card and connected to pc, now pc is working fine and the old video card wasnt super bad so i amn't complaining at all. so afterall tech supporter took money but didn't even bother to check anything. what so ever am so grateful of you all for trying to help me this forum is amazing <3.

this issue is now fixed and i am glad to share my experience with anyone who will have same error and try to help them fix it
