Hi defjam. Welcome to Geeks to Go. Random crashes/reboots are caused by heat, memory, drivers or power supply. Check your fans and make sure they are working. You can test memory with http://www.memtest.org/. Make sure you have the current drivers installed. Also, what are the amp ratings on the voltage rails of the power supply? This is on a label on the side of the power supply. You need to work through each of the possibilities and rule it out. The event viewer can perhaps give you a clue. Go to start, my computer, right click manage, event viewer. Look for those with a red x corresponsing to the time of the crash. Right click poperties to see details. You can also send a message to M$ and view their knowledge base for additional details and possible solutions. Provide your complete system specs including the make/model of the power supply and the amps/volts ratings. This will assist folks in trying to help you.

Thank you for your reply. But i'm pretty sure that problem isn't caused by hardware problems you mentioned before, because it only happens while i'm playing concrete games (driv3r and gta)... I have tryed to install newest video card drivers, and even reinstalled windows, but it still keeps crashing. Please tell me what I should do, or what information about my computer, that will asist you in helping me to solve this problem, i should post here.

Could it be the software?
I mean, you say you only have it with games from a certain house.
Maybe they have some sloppy code in their libraries that they keep using?

What do their techs have to say on the subject?

Defjam,

I had a similar problem that I spent weeks on working with Microsft. Evey time I played Halo online or any other online game, after about 20-30 minutes the system would shutdown completely. I made all kinds of software changes and it still happened. I went to comp USA and bought a can of compressed air and sprayed the cooling fans and especially in the DVD drive. No mor shutdons its amazing how much heat a graphics card can generate when running a game
