Okay, so the problem I am having is that recently, my graphics and sound turn off, but the computer stays powered on. This happens after playing in any fullscreen game for a random amount of time, I don't know if this happens in any other situation, but so far, this is what I've noticed. I feel like this is happening because there is not enough ventilation and it is overheating? But maybe I'm wrong. Can anyone help me?

Wow! What an awesome program!

Looking at that, my graphics card does look far too hot..

EDIT:

I opened up my computer, and I saw that my TV Tuner was basically touching my graphics card fan(I have a fairly large graphics card). So I took it out.

Now my GPU is staying at a consistent 80.
