Which sentence is better? Are there any errors in those sentences? By playing a computer game, she was able to let off some steam, refreshing herself. By playing a computer game, she was able to let off some steam, to refresh herself.

I would say your first sentence is the better option. It sounds more natural. It is a bit unnatural to see the clause "to refresh herself" at the end of the second sentence. Instead I would suggest "To refresh herself, she played a computer game to let off some steam," or "She was able to let off some steam, to refresh herself, by playing a computer game."
