Unhappy Pc restarting while playing games

sponsored links

 
Hi, I'm havin trouble with my pc. When i try to play any game with reasonabley good graphics the computer just suddenly restarts. I am the second owner of the pc and i have had it for about 2 months. Its only does it with games. The better the graphics, the quicker it restarts. It's an Advent 3000 series with a nvidia geforce 4 mx graphics card and the owner before me added a creative audigy. I just can't figure out whats wrong with it!
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Need more information please.

Has it ever worked OK with the same games, when did this problem occur, was it when you added or installed something, and what is your operating system and specs etc etc?

Hi, It's never worked properly with all my games, my older PC worked fine with the games. I'm using Windows XP Home with a 1.7GHz preocessor and 512MB of RAM. The OS has been restored quite a few times which makes me think there is something wrong with the hardware.

Hi
The problem which you are having is maybe your RAM is avoiding you from playing the games. Try to change your ram and replace it by a new ram and see.

Sounds like it could be a heat issue. Try removing the side of the case and play the games that make it crash. If it doesn't crash, invest in some fans or a new case.

Also, make sure the interior of your case is dust free. If it's loaded with dust, vacuum it.
