Does it only crash when playing games? Have you installed any new software or hardware recently?

Are there any devices showing errors or conflicts in device manager?

only installed updates for hp. Only crashes when gaming online. Misses plays poker on facebook and its ok all the time but if she plays the bejeweled game after 10-15 mins it crashes.

Assuming bejewelled is an on-line game, is it only it which crashes the PC or do other on-line games cause crashes as well?

Does the PC run normally otherwise?

What is the model of the HP PC concerned?

Need system specs to further assist you.
