Hi there! first time here :) okay anyways, My computer restarts everytime i play a game and it can vary in time, but usually crashes within 1-30 minutes of playing and happens everytime. I have around 5-6 online games including, WoW, BF2 being my main ones and can't figure out what's causing it! I had my computer repaired about 6 month's ago and it started after it got repaired. I asked the repair guys and didn't know. I had my computer repaired because i got a bad virus so i had new drivers installed and new windows. I have installed HWmonitor to check my fan temperature and they all seem to stay around the 30-40 degree mark when playing games which seems fine, so i don't know what else to do? here is some info on my comp if this helps:

Howdy,

I would like to see the HWmonitor results....take one when the PC is IDE and then put it under load for awhile and take another reading....take a print screen of the results and post them.

What is your Video card is it using the onboard graphics card?

hey Megabite, thanks for the reply, Sorry for being such a newb but what does IDE mean haha? and also I just I just did a driver scan and it said my NVIDEA was out of date ( I think it was the graphics card ) so i installed the driver for it, will tell you if there's any difference. thanks again.
