Two days ago, my computer started to lock-up when gaming. It only happens on these two games I have been playing: Mafia 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Source-engine games and GTA IV works fine. (I continue to search more games that crash)
The lock-up is like this: After 15-20min of playing BC2, the picture stops and sound is gone. It doesn't make that shuttering noise, what usually happens when computer freezes.
It doesn't restart. It just stays there. Only thing I can do is press the button.
I've checked temps and they're very good. Logged max 44°C for processor and max 54°C for GPU.
