I told a friend that I would fix his computer. So I am trying to find out what the problem is. I thought that I found it and well what I thought it was is not the problem. So here is the problem, the computer runs for awhile about 1-4 hours. This is just sitting time and time playing tigerwoods. When playing the game the comp shuts off...well freezes then shuts off. I noticed when I was checking to see what the problem was that the cpu seemed to be overclock. It has an AMD Athlon 2800+ that should be clocked to 1.8Ghz but in cpu-z its at 2.07Ghz. So I asumed that the problem was the overclock was failing. I reset Cmos and that didn't change the clock speed of the cpu(back to the 1.8Ghz) Am I wrong? Is the AMD 2800+ factory clock at 2.07Ghz. Is there something I am missing here...what else could it be....thanks again for the help in advance.
