Computer freezes

Question

Whenever I play Warcraft III on the battlenet server, on occasion the game will freeze up, locking up my computer. It usually happens when I host a game, but not all the time. Sometimes it will let me alt + tab out back to the desktop, but others times it will not and I'll have to manually restart my computer. Also others games like HalfLife, when I play online it will freeze too, but not nearly as much as when I play Warcraft III. My power supply is only 250W and my fans aren't great. I think it may be an overheating problem. Help!

There are several reasons to this problem Indeed it can be your fan as you mentioned If the CPU runs hot, it will definitely causes your computer to shutdowm You did not mentioned your CPU speed you need to have enough memory and CPU speed to run some of the games you have 512 mbs of memory which is good I don't know your CPU speed You may change the fan and check the CPU speed

Good Luck!
