:tazz: Hi everyone, I would be verry happy if anyone can explain to me what is going on? Lately when I use my computer espescially during gameplay in the beginning it works great but then after a halv an hour or so my pc shuts himselv down but not normaly all the power so I have to turn of the power button behind the chassi (wait) and then turn it back after that I can turn it on again with the front button and it works after asking me if I want to enter the BIOS after the last failure. Weird. How can that be any help would be great ;)

Best regards

paperone

First guess is heat?

Take a small fan, open the case (don't touch anything) and blow a small fan across the motherboard on LOW. Clean out any dust bunnies first
