I can switch on my pc for 1 week without offing it and it runs perfectly fine. But the problem is when I play games, it will hang and restart itself. What is happening?

Try restarting your computer before playing games.
Generally, where does the computer hang when playing games; for example, can you get past the load, or get past the initial screens?

Do you get an error message when the computer spontaniously restarts?

If not you need to disable it from restarting on error.

To stop the spontaneous rebooting and be able to see the bsod which has information we can use to diagnose the problem do the following:

Right click on the "My Computer" icon on your screen, then select "Properties", click the "Advanced" tab

Click "settings" in "Startup and Recovery Settings"

Then uncheck Automatically Restart

Click "Apply" and then "OK"

In your next post give us the information on the BSOD (stop message).

It should look something like this:
0x0000008E (Followed by four other sets of numbers in parenthesis.) and some other information.

Generally this problem is caused by your video drivers (nv4_disp.dll). And, once again "generally" the fix is to uninstall your video drivers and install the latest version from the nVidia website ( http://www.nvidia.com ). I'd give a direct link, but the site isn't responding to my browser right now.

The reason that I've stressed "generally" here is that this is the most likely cause of your problem. This is because Windows has said that the problem was caused by nv4_disp.dll - which is a part of the nVidia display driver.

But, research into the particular error message shows that it can be other problems, such as bad memory, or some software. Here's the link: http://aumha.org/win5/kbestop.php#0x50
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
