While playing left 4 dead 2 these last couple of times I have noticed that my pc turns itself off. I think it is an overheating problem because when I turn it on after it loads up to the windows loading screen and it's very faint but after a little while about 5 to 10 minutes it boots up fine.
Urm it's a 3.6ghz intel cpu, with 1gb ram and a Nvidia Geforce 210 with a gb of video memory. Anything else you would like to know. And I thought it might be the pus that's failing but I don't know what one to buy or were from?
After installing a new PSU I went for a 600w one to the extra oomph im still noticing the same problem. I don't want to have to spend a lot of money as the pc is fairly old now and as I only work part time I can't afford big expenditure's on it anyway. Any advice would be much appreciated
Try updating your drivers for your video card if they're not already the latest. click here Also download EVGA Precision from click here and check your graphics card temperature while gaming. It shouldn't really go over 80 degrees C. Also download Coretemp click here and check your cpu temps under load.
I have a program called SpeedFan installed on my pc and it tells me what the tempreture's are and such and it says temp 1 is 127C, temp2 is 127C, temp3 is 74C. What are these temps for? If anyone knows it would eb a lot of help.
What cpu do you have then? And what operating system? Can't understand why evga precision won't download. Downloads fine here. Those temperatures seem exceedingly high anyway. It sounds like a heat issue but until you can get clear readings of your cpu and gfx card you won't be able to pinpoint it.
