Howdy.

Man, I am so confused! Basically, what is happening is that whenever I play a game of any reasonably high spec, which is quite often, if I pause the game or a cut sequence happens, my computer emits a high pitched beep for about five seconds and shuts down, as if I pulled out the power connector. Can anyone give me a hand?

Thanks.

high spec games cause a lot of heat, but the beep is interesting.

Try opening her up (ground yourself), cleaning the dust bunnies from your video card and cpu fans (hold fans blades and blast with compressed air--hold because compressed air spins blades too fast and will burn the bearings)

Use a small fan and blow a light breeze across the system---does it repeat

Also, type

start, run type
eventvwr.msc

Thanks I'll give it a shot.

Are there any other suggestions?

Yeah that didn't work.

I put another fan into it, but that only lets me play for longer without it shutting down. Which is a bonus, I guess. :tazz:
