Computer crashing whenever I open a game

Hi guys, looking for some advise. I have played these games on my PC perfectly fine before, I reinstalled Windows on my PC a few months ago and am not attempting to play them, upon launching the PC just crashes and dosen't do anything. Then after a few minutes I have to turn it off at the power. It's Football Manager 2017 I am trying to play but I have tried older versions and other games from Steam, same thing happens. Does anybody have any idea why this would happen? As I said I have played them on this computer before so can't be the machine specs or anything like that.

Possibly a heat problem your machine may require a good dusting out.

cCould also be a driver problem as you have reinstalled windows and it may have replaced the graphics drivers with a geneic diver. Try updating your graphics drivers.
