Hi guys, I've been streaming Overwatch on Twitch via OBS for the past week and lately, I've encountered some issues with my stream and recordings. The video output get stuck at a screen (usually Overwatch Homepage) and the audio continues to run at the background. This happens for both recording and streaming. Sometimes my streaming just get a black screen with audio running at the back.

My friends suggested I upgrade my laptop specs as it is not enough for stream + gaming + other apps running at the background. I restarted my laptop, closed my discord and other apps at the background and my stream seems fine.

Currently using - Lenovo Ideapad Y700
i5-6300 HQ CPU @ 2.3Ghz
8G Ram
Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M

Any advices on which part to upgrade or should I get a desktop instead? Or are there issues with OBS? FYI, I'm pretty tight on budget. Thanks in advance!
