Hey all,

My computer is restarting when I play games it plays for some time then restarts, someone on this forum suggested I buy RAM, so i bought 512 additional RAM.......Still does it, someone suggested I take original RAM out.......Still does it!

Im out of answers and very mad

What does someone suggest I do?

btw it does it even for gameboy roms, and age of empires 2 isnt the most demanding game out there.

For each piece of hardware inside the PC or any peripheral component you add such as a printer, there are drivers which need to be installed

Get Everest Home here

Install and then open, click + next to computer then summary, look through the list on the right for display / video adapter

Get the drivers for it or post the name and model here

If drivers don't fix the problem then I would assume you're overheating....Open up side panel on computer (allowing more air in) and then play games...If all is well then you've found your problem.

That is the one, unfortunate size but probably more aesthetic than having the case open, and cheaper than uprating the fans
