Sudden shut down windows 7
Feb 12, 2013, 4:40 PM
I am having problems with my pc shutting down randomly while running various games. I have ran memory diagnostics and no problem was recorded.
This is happening completely randomly... Maybe once a fortnight but then other times it can happen every time I try to run a game!
It has never happened whilst using other program's or surfing the net, thus I thought it might have been memory problem.
Any help would be much appreciated
PC Specs: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400@3.0GHz

Try updating the graphics drivers, it could also be the power supply failing to provide enough power.

I have already updated the graphics drivers, still to avail.
I am currently sourcing a 750w power supply from your advise. Hopefully that will fix the problem.
Thanks for the reply
