The short of it is when I play games, normally mmorpgs, my computer will just shut down. I will have to switch the plug off and on at the wall and then power up the pc again. The pc will not power up from its own switch.
This normally happens in online games but happens in Oblivion whenever I trigger something like going through a new door. but once ive gone through that door once it wont have a problem going through it again. maddening
I have updated everything I can think of driver wise, cleaned everything (AVG, ZoneAlarm & ad aware). I have tried disabling these when playing but no dice.
Disk is cleaned and defragged.
DxDiag says everything is fine (DX9.0c)
Dont think overheating as this shut down happens within a minute of starting a game like ATITD but I can quake all day long.
My error log for oblivion says this:
