I have a new computer just built, up-and-running for three weeks now.
Since then my friend and I have been using it quite a bit. The longer running programs have been
games like WOW and The SIMS.
While playing either of these games I have experienced a sudden crash on three different occasions in these three weeks. A click of the mouse kicks me out of the game and into a diagnostic check of the hard drive for errors and reboot sequence. Can't understand a reason why.
I keep a track of my computer's operating temp.(since it is new- and wondering if things are stable). The temps all look stable. CPU-70F
I have an OEM XP. Have not seen this happen while running other applications. I suspect it may be the games.
I need some help to know what to check before coming to any conclusions. Thanks
