Your graphics card may not support the particular games. Search game name + the word "specifications" to see what the system specs for the game is. hang-the-9 February 28, 2012 6:39:01 PM During gaming, PC heats up a lot, and video card may overheat as well. Clean out the case, make sure there is no dust in the fans on the card or the heatsinks. Try again. If it continues you may need to try a different power supply. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
