hi can you please tell me if this is the reason my pc keeps locking up, i get no error messages, pc just grinds to a halt and i cant ctrl alt del can only hard restart, it then takes ages to boot windows. im thinking my Graphics card is running too hot, i get around 2 hours of play

i have a stock pc running stock equip apart from the graphics card that is a nividia gt220, im only playing wow so its not too demanding.

No, I would say your temps look fine from that image although that is probably not at load? It would be woth trying to monitor what your temps do under load. E.g. Play and every 15 mins or so Alt-Tab out of game and check your temps. With everything at stock you shouldn't have temp problems unless you have restricted airflow around the case or something is faulty (fan or heat sink connection).

Check your temps under load and post back
