Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Crysis 2 have caused my computer to totally shutdown without warning after about 20-30 mins of play. Then after maybe 3-5 mins after the shutdown the computer restarts its self. First game I installed into this machine was Shogun 2 and I did not have a problem with shutdowns. However I haven't played that game in awhile.
Anybody else having these problems?
Am going to format harddrive and reinstall windows 7 and keep you guys posted.
After reading through online. It could be multiple items. Guess I'll try it when I get home and keep you guys posted.
1. Format harddrive and fresh install of Windows 7 ultimate.
2. Stress test ram with Mem86+
3. Go to best buy and purchase a power supply.
Hopefully I can find the problem and let anybody that has a similar problem find a solution.
Alright I found the problem. Seems my MSI 6950 2gb video card was not cooling effectively with the auto fan. Had to manual set the fan at 60. Which kept the card at 65 C max settings for crysis 2. On auto the card slowly but surely reached 90 C which made the computer shutdown.
However, I read online that 90 C on a 6950 is normal under full load. Should I contact MSI and ask for a RMA? Kinda of annoying that I have to manually set the fan speed everytime am going to game. Temporary fix I guess. Fan is considerably loud at 60%
