well, if you are shutting down while under laod, i am guessing you are over heating.

stock cooler? aftermarket cooler? either way, take your case apart, clean out dust bunnies. Also, be very sure to check the fins on your heat sink. those can over time get packed with dust, offering no cooling what so ever.

do you have case fans? are you in a hot room?

some things we ned to really help will be specifics, your room temp, your cpu temps, need to find a program to monitor that for us.

computers shut down on purpose to save things from getting cooked, so dont worry too much yet. invest in some canned air, clean her out, and let us know what happens after that.

1.ATI Radieon Model HD 5450 series

2. During Normal the Temp is 30-40 but during play it is 80-90

3.Latest Drivers are installed

4.It happens after 10 to 15min of Gaming.

I even Cleaned up the Processor and Fan and added a FAN connected to Cabinet. so now totally 2 Fans are running at a time.

But the issue still exists.......

Above temp reading is done after Cleaning the Heat Sink and adding FAN.

Pls help me...

ok, well,, ,thats really warm.

new CPUS really need good cooling. If you only have 2 case fans, this may be a bit of an issue. my spare machine only has 2 case fans, and if i do any sort of gaming etc,, it gets warm, doesn't shut down, but gets warm.

now, since you only have a dual core CPU, i wonder if there isnt somthing else going on as well.. is the CPU cooler working correctly? usually they spin around 2000 RPM. what does it spin at according to the BIOS?

without seeing your set up, and being hands on... it is hard for me to give you a " this is your issue" type answer. my guess, its a combo of a few things, adding up to over heating.

my first dual core resulted in me getting an aftermarket CPU cooler as i was getting over heat alarms.

Overheating. Still, a C2D at stock should nto be running into these issues, even with a stock heatsink. Re-apply thermal paste, and make sure the heatsink is on correctly.

you said you added a fan to your case.. were you over heating before you installed it? did you make sure the direction is blowing out, not in?

it somehow sems as if you think they game requires such that it is causing you to over heat,, no, games wont cause such an issue. it is something physical.

your fan/heatsinks are installed incorrectly, your thermal paste was/is applied incorrectly.

the Temp was from Processor Core 0 and Core 1

Core 0 raised to 84 with 100% load after 15min play

then Core 1 raised to 60+ with 60% load

After viewing this temp,I just logout from the Game...

How to view the Temp of GPU ?

Note:- I was not able to place a fan to GPU from side Panel...



this weekend planning to apply thermal paste b/w Processor and Fan....

sounds like you will just need to wait,
1, reapply heat sink fan, and thermal paste. make sure the fan is sowkring.
2. check the direction on your case fans. most cases have at least 2 case fan spots, 1 front, 1 rear. make sure the front is blowing in, and the rear is blowing out. if not, the air stays trapped inside, and heats up very quickly.

you said you have an ATI card, the ATI catalyst program or whatever they call it has a temp monitor feature... its under performance.
