Look in the Event Viewer and see what errors are showing up at the time that this is happening. Each error will have its own date and time shown.

Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Event Viewer.

On the right side of the page you will see the options Applications, Security, and Systems, double click on Systems. There are eight columns on this page, the three that you will want are Type, Date, Time, and Event.

The errors will appear in the Type column, they are red dots with a white X inside of them.

Warnings will appear as a yellow trinangle with an exclamation mark inside.

When you see an error, double click on it and see what the description is.

Please post the error code/s found in the Event column and the descriptions back in this topic.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Overheating situations typically don't produce any error messages or warnings.

You might check to see that all fans are working properly and that there is no dust accumulation inside the case that could be adversely impacting system performance.

Its not an overheat issue. The first time my computer was on for about 2 hours and then it crash. After the crash it didn't happen again till 10 hours later.

Both times I was playing a game. One was MapleStory the other time I was playing a flash game (internet explorer type games). I think both times the auto update for Norton started. . .this thing never wants to turn off. It never seem to cause me any trouble.

Since this occurs while playing a game, I'd first suspect the video card. Does it have a fan, and is the fan working?
How about the fan on your CPU cooler?

Then I'd suspect drivers for the video card.

Video card doesn't have a fan. I can understand it crashing during Maplestory but not that flash game. . .Its the game that someone draws and you guess what they draw ><

Its just a crash and it happen to me about 4 times in 2 days. No blue screen as I said. No memory dumps, and didn't found anything in the event viewer.

I highly doubt its the video card since majority of the flash games I play, you don't need the video card or don't need it at full power.

If you mean dust, there is very little dust inside.

If you mean downloads and other online stuff. Alot but I keep norton and several other things to clean out any unwanted viruses, malware, etc. . .

Try removing Norton, and see if you continue to get crashes.
