    Hi, I just started having problems where when I play a video game it freezes on me, and won't let me do anything forcing me to manual shutdown through the tower button. I looked up reasons on why this may happen, I see overheating sometimes is a problem, and it doesn't seem to be overheating, sometimes it continues to play but just freezes again. I also read somewhere sometimes it's something to do with the sound or something being off? I'm not sure what it is, and what it's doing. I'd just like some feedback on what to check and do to try and solve this problem.

    I have had the same problem ... It was all due to lack of a memory ... and of course, too low power processor.

    go here www.gtopala.com and download System Information for Windows

    run the application -> under harware -> sensors -> find the temperature of your cpu and video card

    The GPU core temp is 82 C
    This is while running no game program, so it sounds very hot already.​

    Yeah I dusted it before, took a hose and placed it over with low suction and got it decently clean. Didn't really check the fan, but pretty sure now it's a G-card problem, thanks a lot.
