Hello there. I decided to post a thread here, Cause I couldn't find any solution on Google. So, the problem I have is:
I start playing a game, I play it for about an hour or more (The problem is random) and then all of a sudden there's a weird noise (The only way I can describe it is "trrrrrrrrrrrr") and the screen goes black. After that, Nothing works, I'm forced to restart my computer. I'm running Memtest as I write this,btw.
I'm pretty sure that it's not overheating issue, because I've got new cooling and my computer is at constant 45-50 Celsius degrees.
My specs are these:
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.00GHZ , 3.00GHZ
RAM Memory = 2GB.
32Bit Operating System
nVidia gForce 9800 GT
Any help would be EXTREMELY appreciated.
PS: I put Graphic Cards as the sub-category, Cause I honestly have no idea whats the nature of my problem :3
Well, my PSU is 4 years old. I haven't changed it since I bought the PC. Don't hit me D: I know I'm stupid for not changing it xD
Mate, i have no idea what brand it is. It just says CoolerMaster and 460. The rest is just a row of serial numbers :3
Take the side cover off the case and run with it off. The system will run cooler and that should help for now. Also, make sure you remove any dust and hairballs that have accumulated in the case as well.
Ah, I fixed the problem myself. I had an extra FAN inside my case that wasn't plugged in. I plugged it in and placed it under my Graphic card. Been playing Battlefield 3 for almost 4 hours, and no crash.Yay! <3
