    For some reason my pc crashes when i play games in about 3-5 mins.I found out torrents can give viruses so i re installed my windows 7 ultimate.I even download section 8 and Battlefeild 1942 the complete collection to see if it only happened with torrents.But still my pc crash when i play games.The weird thing is that if i don't play games for a few hours and then start playing games it lasts about 5-7 mins.This also happens with online flash games.PLZ HELP,THE 2 GAMES I BOUGHT THEM BOTH!!!!!!!

    Do you have an itergrated card as well? If you do remove your GPU and connect your monitor to your interated and see if you have the same results. This also could be a CPU problem, when ever you signifcently utilise the CPU it shuts down.

    This is a desktop correct? If so....
    1) Se if you have a seccond mointor connection (not right next to the first one, in a different place on the back of the computer. If there is no seccond connection then don't proceed.)
    2) Disconect the monitor and the power cable to your computer
    3) Unscrew the case
    4) loctate your GPU on the motherboard
    a. Look at the attached digram
    b. It will be in a PCI or PCI-e slot
    5) Take a screw driver, and unscrew the screw that mounts the card to the case. (don't unscrew any screws on the mobo!)
    5) Pull the GPU stright up (It might show some resistence, but not much
    6) Screw the case back up, and reconnect the monitor cable to the other port.
