ok to put this short, whenever i play a graphics heavy game such as rainbow six vegas, half life 2, elder scrolls oblivion, the game stops, the screen goes black and my computer goes into off mode, doesnt shut off but goes to sleep. I already completely rid my computer of spyware and bleep (thanks to this website :D) and i updated my card drivers. can someone please help me? My graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS. any help would be great.

Could a problem with your temperatures. What temp is your computer running at?

Yea thats what I was gonna say. If the graphics card gets to hot it will force the computer to shut itself off so it can cool down.

This may be a dumb question but did you apply the cable from your video card to your powersupply? my games would do that when i didnt have the cable connected( didnt realize one came with my 7600 gs tell a day later haha). That card needs some serious power to run, even if you have the cord connected your power supply might be to weak.

Was this preassembled or did you ad the card/ What is the Motherboard?

If he's talking about your 6-pin power plug, you should find one hanging off your power supply and plug it into the side of your VGA. The plug itself has a 3x2 pin head and should fit your VGA nicely.

My 7600 GS came with a color coded cable with two plastic ends, one connects to the top of the card and the other connects to a cord that comes off your power supply(which looks similar).

sounds like you might have a defective card, might want to call someone about that..specially if its under warranty.The one thing i find weird is it only does it when you try to play a game? seems like if the card was damaged it wouldn't work in other areas.

You try driver version 93.71 for the 7 series?

Do you know you need to uninstall your old drivers when you install new ones?

Ya I got a bsod one time from my old graphics card, that said something about an infinite loop. I talked to a tech support from the company and he told me just to send it back. I got a new one and no more problem. So it looks as if your card might be dying/dead.
