Re: Dell XPS 600 freezes during gameplay

You won't see an event log. You have to go look at it.

Event Viewer is an advanced tool that displays detailed information about significant events on your computer.

It can be helpful when troubleshooting problems and errors with Windows and other programs.

  • Open Event Viewer by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button,

  •  clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Event Viewer.

  • Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.


Here's another way to open Event Viewer: Click the Start button Picture of the Start button. In the Search box, type Event Viewer, and then, in the list of results, double-click Event Viewer.
