Cool

Question

well, my computer seems to work normally until i play a certain game (diablo ii) i havent tried anymore games yet, as i have recently just built this computer, and installed windows, but anyhow, when ive been playing the game, usually about 2-5 minutes, the computer turns itself OFF, upon rebooting the system, it all seemingly works fine, until again i try to play this game, and again, it turns itself off, this is extremely frustrating as you probably can imagine, so could you suggest a few reasons on what may be the problem, so if one suggestion doesnt work i have another to work on, thx in advance.

This is a problem with your AMD CPU cooling, or lack thereof When you play games, such as Diablo II, you will overheat your Processor and crash the system A fan is probably not attached or is inadequate In any case, you need to check your processor's cooling system and ventelation I solved this problem by buying another fan to cool the CPU.

Hope this helps.
