Hello

When I play Warcraft 3 the computer will randomly shut down. I dont think its the game because i only got it today.

I feel that its the PSU. But it dose not say the details of what it is on the PSU. I got it from an old couple who didnt know anything about it. but this list which contains info about the comp

Its about 3 or 4 years old.

Would it be a bad PSU or something else

If it was your power supply causing the problem the best thing you can do is download speedfan. Run the program and look at the voltages at the bottom of the window. If they are not close to what they should be it probably is the problem. For example i has a PS that was showing 11.43 volts on the 12 volt line. both the 3.3 volt and 5 volt lines were very good at 3.41 and 4.97. This computer would just randomly restart all the time. Changing the Elcheapo 450 wattPS for a thermotake 430 watt PS fixed the problem. The 12 volt line showed a steady 12.1 volts

You may also be able to see the MB and cpu temps with speedfan if the MB has the sensors. High temps can also cause shutdowns.

Well i do think this is caused by the warcraft game.

The error message is the same as this one.
0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.

This error can also be caused by a bad hard drive, which i doubt is your problem simply because you are not saying it is having problems at other times.

Microsoft ram or pagefile article.

You can use Memest to check your memory.

Your temps do not indicate too high temps. It is too bad you did not include the whole window in the picture so i could seethe voltages.
