Certain games causing frozen black screen

Specs: Windows 7, AMD A8-3870k / 8GB
I just opened a game I played around 2 months ago. Now whenever I open the game after a few seconds the screen goes black and the computer freezes (I can't alt+tab or ctrl+alt+del) and whenever I press the caps lock key the keyboard won't respond and the only way to recover is to restart the pc via the restart button on the case. I didn't continue to bother fix the problem since other games doesn't do the same thing (GTA V and WWE 2K15 works fine) and the fact that the game is still in Early Acess (H1Z1 to be exact) goes into my mind that it might be the game's optimization and I'll just wait for an update. But recently I downloaded Tera through Steam and it seems to cause the same problem. The problem also occurs when I force Tera to run in windowed mode but it doesn't seem to occur when the Tera window is not active or on the screen. I updated my drivers hoping that it would fix it but no luck and it doesn't seem to cause blue screens. No overheating issues either.

Here's my specs:
AMD A8-3870k @ 2.99Ghz (not overclocked)
8GB Ram
GTX 960 2GB

If there are other info you would need just tell me.
Thank you!

EDIT: Other steam games seems to work fine.

This PC will never be as fast as yours.
