  1. If you would list you pc's spec's we could give you better answers. What game were you playing ? Has this ever happened before ? Have you installed the latest drivers? The temps seem kind of high but not critical.

  3. i think i solved the problem.. i don't know what i did exactly but everything is back to normal

    i opened the case.. cleaned the dust with a blower and focused more on the graphic card... changed its slot to an upper one... ran the PC and the problem was there.. i forced the fans to run at 100% for a while and all of the sudden everything went back to normal

    thanks for responding and i hope this doesn't happen again..
  4. it'll come back.
