My specs are as follows:
Mobo: Asrock K7S41GX
CPU: AMD Sempron 2600+ 1.82ghz
Memory: 512mb RAM
Video: ATI Radeon Sapphire 9200SE 128mb
*my case is constantly open and my computer is in my basement, if it makes a difference.
Like it said, it was working fine about 5 months ago and since it started happening, i've gone through about 3-4 PSU's, all having the same result. Now i'm using a 500W PSU. I first thought that my CPU or computer is overheating. These are the results i got from SpeedFan (program that monitors temps) :
Temp01: 29C (below recommended)
Temp02: 42C (at recommended)
HD0: 29C (below recommended)
After seeing that my temperatures were relatively good, i paid a little more attention to when my computer turns off. I noticed that the longer i have my computer off prior to playing a game, the longer i can play the game without having the computer to turn off. Also, i noticed that the lower i set my graphic settings, the longer i can play with having the computer to turn off. I stress that i have had everything the same for more than a year now, and it was only about 5 months ago where the shutdowns started taking place. I've played Guild Wars and POP2 at med-high settings before with no problems. Any ideas? My mind is thinking that my video card is overheating or something, but it was working fine before...
Any ideas? All help is appriciated.
