Thread Starter 
Hi, i play on games like css and bf2, both games reboot my computer it could be 5 mins into the game or 30 minutues random restarts. i had 512 ram and 9200 radeon 256mb card, i added another 1 gig so now i have 1.5 gig of ram and also i changed my card to a radeon 9800 pro 128mb. Same problem happens. at first i use to just get quit to the desktop from the game but now i havnt had quit to the desktop in agers!. just my pc restarts when playing games!

What can it be? could it be my pc overheating? so i need a new heatsink? i have a AMD 3200+ and its 2 years old i havn't touched anything to it. i als have a fan on the side of my case.

Could someone solve my problem thanks

Rob

Please fill in your System Specs vis the USER CP link @ the top of page... see "Edit System Specs"

1. Find the System temp
2. The CPU idle temp.
3. If possible... with out crashing the CPU Full LOad temp. (try OCCT to load it up)

CPU-Z @ www.cpuid.com will help tell you what you have in your system.
Temps... most Asus MBs come with a utility included on the CD to monitor temps.
To cause full load a program like OCCT works well and it also determins if you have a stable system. It's available in the link
