My pc tends to crash after about 20 minutes into a game. It only happens with HL2 and Battlefield 2. I am running a geforce 6800gt so I do not think it is my video card. as in temps do not tend to go over 72c.

The CPU is a P4 @ 3.4ghz and running a Zalman CPU cooler on it.

I Have tried everything to keep the Pc from crashing but yet it still does.

It seems like it goes into sleep mode. As im all Panel LED's are still on. but I have to shut the PC off and back on to use it.

Any one ever had this problem?

see if there is a update for your video card and check to see if there are any patches for those games.

Sounds like either high temperatures or problems with the power supply.

More detailed system specs would help.

Yeah, i have a similar problem. Instead, though, my computer shuts itself all the way down, not just sleep mode.

I am a pathetic, cheap idiot and I don't buy the latest and greatest. I also don't know if video cards are downloadable or not but if htey are, I need some guidance.

Anyways, I have no idea what causes this, it appears that you should be covered with the video card.

well this was happening to me, and it turned out it was my CPU's bus speed.
