About a week ago, the computer would crash about 15 minutes after powering on, if it was off for around 5 hours or more, and would work fine after that. today I started the computer, started playing a game and it crashed as usual, then I restart and it crashed after about 10 minutes. I restarted and it crashed after about 5 minutes. I let it sit for a while, then checked the temp when I started it again and it said 95F. When it started it crashed while loading windows. I tried once after this and it just crashed after a few minutes.
edit: It will always crash when I start a 3D game.
edit2: I took a stick of ram out and I was able to run a game for a few minutes before crashing. I tried with both sticks alone.
Edit3: i actually went into bios and let it sit a bit to watch the CPU temp and it crashed when i wasn't watching at the time, was at around 110F the last time i looked at it.
