Hi there guys!
I have a friend over the internet that I am willing to help him (he doesn't know English well). He told me he has his computer overheating and crashing every time he plays a game.
He told me he has no idea how to format a computer, it's pretty hard to explain it to him, it took 10 minutes for him to understand where to write "dxdiag"
His PC specs:
OS: Windows Vista ultimate 6.0 Build 6002
Memory: 6142MB RAM
Graphic card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295
Screen: 1920x1200 (32bit)(60Hz) (I don't think it's important though)
-When he plays a game, between 10 minutes and 30 minutes his computer crashes and the back of his computer is really really hot.
-This problem occurs every time he plays a game, old and new games.
-He doesn't have any fans cooling down his computer, but he told me this problem started recently and he had no problems before, he bought this computer 3 years ago.
Computer has no dust inside: cleaned.
-I told him that I am pretty sure that the problem is that he has no fans so he said he gonna buy 1 or 2 to cool off his PC, I hope this will fix his overheating, but he still asked me to post a topic somewhere and ask since his computer is a lot better than mine, my PC has a CPU cooling fan and one general cooling fan though.
Any ideas? or you think that buying one or two computer fans will fix this problem for him.
Thanks in advance.
