I just bought a gaming computer from an online company and just received it 2 days ago. I'm really hoping someone here will have some answers to my issues since I've been trying to reach tech support of the company, since the morning I received it, to no avail.
In a nutshell, my gaming computer will not play games. More specifically, it reboots on it's own or freezes with the last few seconds of game sounds looping. It's a toss up on which will happen. I am able to log into the games, and play for up to 10 mins sometimes, then one of the two events I mentioned will happen. But, it happens with every game installed on the computer: World of Warcraft, Battlefield 2142, and Need for Speed: Most Wanted. Some simple video clips on websites will lockup the computer as well. It seems to be game-video-related.

It was built by the company, and brand new
All the drivers are current. GPU temp = 49C. Updated the directx files. Pulled the video cards and RAM out and tested each piece separate. There are no dust bunnies building homes in there. Still not working as it should. I'm frustrated I can't enjoy my present. Any advice would be much appreciated! I have the Sysspec program from your forum sticky as well, if you need any additional information.
