Iv been having this trouble with my PC. Seems when I get into gaming, Battlefield 2 Bad Company or even Second Life, my pc just shuts off completely. Im wondering if this may have something to do with the PSU? My PSU is only 600 watts, but I figured itd be enough for the GTX 550 Ti video card I recently installed. I even recently reinstalled windows thinking maybe it was malware or somethin. So any help or recomendations would be appreciated.

And also, Im running off a AMD Athlong 64 x2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ Also has a new cpu fan installed as well so I cant imagine it being the cpu. Im thinking it either has something to do with the PSU or the Video Card, but I also mention this, the video card is brand new, just got it today.

It is possible it could be overheating, please post a screenshot of HW Monitor.

Do this, start a game up and after 5 minutes, minimize the game and take a screenshot of HW Monitor and post it. I want to see how how it goes when you play games. Also is there any pattern of shutting down like maybe at specified minute?

Well I recently ran second life, it was running smooth and fine for about 5 ish minutes, give or take a few minutes but then it shut down. Will try running it again and check the HW Monitor thingy and will post results.

Monitoring it now, CPU is around 51 degrees, and 31 degrees (since second life only uses one core), and video card is at 40 degrees. Figured that little of a jump aint worthy of a HW Monitor screenshot quite yet but will post a pic if need be.

I reckon you should start Battlefield and see how the temperatures are.

Gonna boot up Battlefield now then.

ALso, just checked right after I left Second Life, the CPU cores reached 69 degrees and 76 degrees, as soon as I closedout of Second Life, the temps dropped back down to 39 degrees and 41 degrees.

And I just found out that since this is a new windows install, I have to update the battlefield 2 bad company game now, which takes around an hour. Any other ideas?

UPDATE - As I was running the BattleField 2 Bad Company updater, the computer again crashed, and crashed again while I was gonna make another post... but heres a pic I managed to grab before it crashed. Posted Image

I believe we found the cause. Have you fully cleaned the CPU fan and heatsink and reapply thermal paste?
