im having some problems with my computer (the details are in my profile)
i used to play BF bad company 2 max with no issue for hours and assasinss creed too
now its been like 6 months and never had a problem..played metro 2033 max with NO problems last month
today, im getting back to bad company 2 and when im starting to play (when the game is loading the map) the pc shuts down completely.. ive tried with low settings but the same happens..then ive tried assasins creed and after 5 min of gameplay, it shuts down.. it also happens with other games
i dont know whats the problem, what could it be?
- gpu drivers? (ive updated to latest) maybe i did something wrong? conflicts?
Get Speedfan and/or CPUID's hardware monitor programs and start monitoring your temps to see if it's either the CPU or GPU overheating.
Another thing is to get Prime95 and run it to stress test your CPUs. This will definitely heat them up and if the PC shuts down within minutes of you running this, I would say it's your CPU which means your heatsink and fan is either not seated properly or else, the fan is going bad.
The same could be said of your GPU. Check the ensure the fan is running on it if it has one.
Also, to memory tests as well to ensure your memory is working properly.
Also, ensure all your cards and memory are seated properly and haven't become unseated.
Also, do you have a virus scanner? Is it up to date? This could also be signs of an virus infection.
