I was thinking lack of power, but then I noticed today I've played GTA4 pretty much ALL day, from 9-about 2 hours ago. The PC was fine, running at high settings all fine.
Now I just install COD5 and play it and bang, pc turns off, it doesn't say Windows is shutting down it just goes off suddenly, no warning, no lag spikes etc. I have noticed that it always seems to go off after tea time around 5PM (maybe coincidental, but i don't know) i have no parental filters or anything.
could it be a dodgy socket, the PSU or the actual house power?
1. PC not overheating.
2. Drivers are up to date.
3. New hardware 3 days ago.
4. Recently formatter
5. I have XP home 32bit.
