So a few months ago, I had a problem where my computer would crash after 30 minutes to an hour of game playing (not terribly graphically strenuous games either). Periodically the screen would go black, and say that there was no signal, so I decided to monitor the problem with speedfan to rule out heating. The highest I ever saw was 75C for either the GPU or the CPU, which is not a shutdown temperature, I don't think. Eventually, one time when the computer tried this nice little trick, instead of irreparably crashing (and forcing me to restart the computer) it just blinked and informed that it it recovered from a driver failure. The computer ran without problems for a month or two, but recently began acting up again. I have since updated my graphics card drivers, and nothing has changed. Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance!
EDIT: It seems that it is not just stopping signal output, the computer is shutting down, but fans and psu light stay on. See my next post for more details as to why I say that. Seems like a processor or mobo failure to me now, but what could explain the period of time that it worked? Could it just be a MOBO driver failure?
