Ok insomniac, here we go again. I was not wrong on the heat issue. (note I called you by your name, don't make me sorry I did) Koolkids problem has been resolved, and you would know that if you paid attention to his last post.

Hi, i have tried to disable that restart thingy but it just freezes and nothing else happens. That was before the problem was solved! All is fine now.



Todays games in single player mode are very cpu demanding. The ai it takes to run bots can be extensive. The video card will heat up when gaming, as well as the cpu, bringing the temps quite a bit higher.



If you recall from one of koolkids earlier posts, quote:

Thanks for the help. I do not mean to take sides but, i did take the cover of my pc and it worked fine



With the side of the case off, heat was allowed to escape. The computer did not crash

He also stated that he put a fan in his case, and it crashed, but not as often.

What solved the problem??? He updated his bios. Problem gone.


I'm willing to bet that the shutdown temp in his bios was set to low by the previous owner. You do realize you can set the computer to shut down, or reboot in the bios if the temp gets to high right??

When he updated his bios, everything got reset, thus putting back the shut down temp to default (not enabled). So, now the computer can run at a higher temp without any problems

Anyways, thats my theory.

Then you are mistaken.

Anyway, I'm not here to debate or try to convince you, think what you like.

Definetly not overheating this time!

I have a fan on the, graphics card, 4 on the case and 1 one the processor (obviously!). The system temp is staying at around 29 celcius.

Any help would be great thanks

Try to uncheck it from restarting on errors as I suggested in post #15.


Then when you get a problem, it will give you a blue screen with information instead of rebooting.


So much for it overheating, that's what you get for listening to an idiot.
