"Send to holiday" button instantly shuts down pc

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X
All drivers are up to date.

When I press the “Send to holiday” button in game, my pc instantly shuts down. Pressing the power button won’t turn it back on. I need to turn off the power supply unit (PSU) and turn it back on for the power button to work. And when I turn off the PSU there is a scary crackling sound. Windows event log just shows “The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.”, not why it shut down.

It happens every time I click on that “Send to holiday” button. And only then. I can play fine. I think this strange behavior rules out power issues. All drivers are up to date.

I don’t even know where to look to try to fix it. Nothing on google about it. Any ideas?

Your power supply is dead; that and possibly something else from your mainboard.
Time to replace components and/or get new PC.

I guess they weren’t lying about Sending to Holidays

Jokes aside, it might be your PC dying.

You really think so? Why does it happen only when I click on that button? Any game or stress test works fine.

Just a line of code that stresses something that’s faulty while the others avoid the faulty thing.
It’s clear from the crackling that you have faulty electronics somewhere in the circuits & no amount of legal code can cause that.

Thanks. I’ll try it with replacing the PSU.

Update: So I just reinstalled the game and limited FPS to 144. I can use the button now without my pc shutting down.

The issue isn’t your PC. Check out this section and you’ll see a ton of people reporting that the game is crashing people’s PC.
