Hello gentlemen, for some reason (starting today) my computer is crashing about 10-15 minutes of playing a game. To be specific, the monitor will go black and pop up with a message saying No signal input or something like that, during this the game's sound will begin to loop, it'll then stay like that until I have to manually reboot the computer. I tried 3 different games (Garry's mod, minecraft, League of Legends) and the same thing happened to all of them. I have all the system requirements for the games I mentioned above. Also I'm not sure if it's a heat problem, nor do I know what an ideal temp for a computer is so I ran a game (minecraft) for about 5 minutes and took a pic of my temp, here are the results.
Before running the game: http://i.imgur.com/SPk0s.jpg
After running the game for 5 minutes: http://i.imgur.com/wmo4x.jpg

I would've ran the game longer but I was afraid it was going to crash again. I also attached my specs to this post incase that helps. Thanks in advance.

Edit: Also I forgot to mention, I updated my drivers after the first crash but it did not stop the crashing.

I take it these games have worked OK previously?

Your temps are a little high but not massively excessive, have a check inside and give it a good clean out using canned air. Pay particular attention to and fans / heatsinks etc.

Have you done any hardware upgrades to the PC and how old is it?

I can't see the DXDiag unfortunately due to the 'internet police' at my work haha.

Hey tanis, yes the games have been working fine before, no I haven't upgraded the pc, it's about 3 years old, and I'll go ahead and look around for some canned air then (where would the heatsinks be located?). I doubt your still at work but I'll go ahead and paste the dx diag here, just incase =)

The main heatsinks that are likely to get a bit grotty are the CPU and GPU ones. CPU should be pretty easy to see, it will likely have a fan attached to it and will be a fairly big and probably silver coloured. The GPU heatsink will be attached tot he graphics card, probably relatively small and under the fan on the card.

If you have never cleaned the inside of the machine out before then heat may be the cause so that might sort it out. Just give the whole thing a good blast out with canned air in accordance with the instructions on the can.

Nothing significant jumps out at my in the DXdiag but I am not a professional when it comes to analysing them I am afraid.

What antivirus / firewall are you using and do you scan regularly? Not that I suspect anything nasty like that but always worth checking :)

I'm using kaspersky internet security 9.0 and super anti spyware, I scan regularly so I don't think that's the case. Anyways I just had a few more questions since this is my first time cleaning the computer; after looking up some tutorials on cleaning computers it says I have to ground myself, the thing is I'm in a house with carpet flooring and the cpu case is painted on and I don't think it's made of metal (Alienware case), is it enough that the computer is unplugged and turned off or should I buy an anti static wristband, or am I just over complicating things?

Ground yourself = banishing yourself to your room to think about what you've done... :)

I would recommend the wrist straps, as they would be better than nothing, especially with carpet.

Grounding can be better if you have a tendancy to attract static haha.

Personally, I haven't used a wrist strap or anything like that for years and never had a problem, especially if all you are really going to do is blast it out with canned air. You are only really likely to touch the case itself which isn't a problem really.

Sorry for the late reply but I haven't been able to get my hands on a computer for awhile. On the day that I was going to clean the computer with the canned air the computer began crashing on startup, it wouldn't even get to the loading screen so I couldn't go into safe mode. I was hoping it was a dust/heat problem but since it wont turn on I'm assuming it's a faulty video card or something (although I could be wrong). So I sent it over to a computer technician I know. Even though I couldn't fix the computer myself I'm still grateful for the help, thanks dudes.
