Recently downloaded battlefield 1 and i have to play on low only because if i switch to medium my pc restarts itself.
My pc specs:
I5 2500 (non k)
Gtx 1060 3 gb
8 gb ram
Could my CPU be the problem here?

    Anything in event viewer? Are you monitoring your temps? Could possibly be a power supply problem.

    Check your temps, if your PC is getting hot, then clean all the dust out of it and apply new thermal paste to your CPU. If your temps are fine I would look at your PSU.

    This happens to me also. No idea why but its nothing to do with temps or anything.

    No post codes, just black screen then restart. There is literally zero indication that the PC should have restarted itself..

    Have to agree with the others. I had this issue back in BF3 or 4 and temps were fine. Turned out to be fluff inside the PSU.

    Don't go messing with your PSU unless you know what you're doing though as they can hold charge even when powered down.

    Had the problem and changed the psu last month, it fixed it.

    It's most likely hardware. If you've monitored temps, and they are good, then you need to start ruling out the rest of your hardware. Run memtest for a few hours. Try a different PSU. Really, beyond that, it pretty much leaves the motherboard, unless it's some kind of driver incompatibility. Troubleshooting sucks. It's a process of elimination.

    Clean/blowout dust, make sure all drivers are up to date. Remove any OC'ing you might have. i5 with 8GB will be pushed hard, but if everything is vented properly, shouldn't crash on you.
