Although you have not given any specs for your computer i suspect it may be one of three things. One is that your power supply does not have enough steady state power. Your PS may say its a 500 watt PS(or whatever it is) but usually the rating is where the PS peaks at, not steady supply. I tend to buy overpowered known good brands of PS's simply because i know i will be getting higher steady rates of wattage.

Not likely here is overheating but just because you have a lot of fans doeant mean you are getting the best cooling. I had a AMD puter with 4 fans in it and the cpu temp was 67º running a game. When i removed a fan my cpu temp went to 60°. You may need to look at the flow paths in the puter to see if you are helping or hurting cooling.

Last but least likely is that your memory may be marginal. It may be just not up to the task when you are running high loads.

Thats the order i would start checking things.

well my chip which is amd duron 1.8 mghzs runs about 45 degress cel when running a game so i doubt its a cooling problem

i have 1 stick of 1gb ram
60gb western hard drive

my psu came with the case
i turned off the auto restart thing in my windows system settings to see what would happened what happens is it doesnt restart now it just shuts off but the fans and lights and everything are still running in order to get my system back up i need to push the restart button on my case

it does it randomly while playing fear demo and bf2
my psu supposed to be 480 watts its doesnt seem to be bad
should i just have the psu connected 1 wire to my hard drive and then 1 wire to my graphic card and see if it does it again?

Yes, i would try that. I have even at times run 2 power supplys in a computer trying to see if it would work. It only helped that the puter hardware kept working properly.It may be that your processor may be too slow to run the newest versions of these games. Do you get any stuttering in the games?

nope no stutter at all fear and bf2 run great

i got a geforce 6600 gt 256mb card

my processor is equal to a 2.4ghz pentium 4

wierd thing is i played fear today for a few hours and when i exited it it restarted sometimes it restarts during gameplay its like when u have a power surge in your home when your computer shuts off and automaticly turns back on thats whats happening and i always get that bug error in my event log when it does that

what i could do is pull the plug from my pc then plug it back in and see if that error shows up in my event log

I had the same problem while playing GTA San Andreas. I found out that if you have an onboard sound card you have to disable sound acceleration in DirectX. Go to start/run type dxdiag and under the sound1 tab try lowering the sound acceleration or disableing it. You wont lose on performance in the game
