Ok, not much info to go on here...

However if its only the game that turns off and goes back into windows, then it could be a compatability issue of the game, you could try download the latest drivers for whatever hardware you are using, ie Video and sound.

IF the whole computer turns off I would suspect a power supply issue, possibly a motherboard, but try power supply first.

The games are cannot play in my pc


Some games need certain VGA capacity to be played, especially big game file like RPG. How much your VGA RAM now ? I suggest you to upgrade your VGA to 1 GB or more (min 512 MB for games) and see if your problem will be solved.

Hope this help.

Most likely you do not have a video card that supports the game you are trying to play or an older game that may have been created for an earlier OS than 7.

You might try running the game in compatibility mode.

1) From start menu Click "Control panel"
2) Click "Programs"
3) Under programs and features click "Run programs for earlier versions of windows"
4) Choose your program and follow prompts.
5)Run in compatibility mode window will open choose "next"
6)Follow Prompts

Hope this helps you.

You should get a quad core processor, with a minimum of 3 to 4 gigs of ram, and an asus SLI or crossfire Motherboard. This and a nice 1 terrabite drive can be done for under $500.00, unfoutunatelly, thats just the way they make it. I PLAY cod4, and I run a dual core with 2 gigs of ram and a $300.00 asus MB, with twin 7900 video cards in sli. and it just about runs it, the new games are processor and ram intense, let alone video cards. I would suggest a single card if cost is a factor, you can always add a second or even a third card later. But the you don't want to be the slowest guy playing, especially if you like first person multiplayer shooters

Pc restarts


You have to give your PC time to start-up.. When you first log in to windows, your PC is starting multiple applications that take up memory and processor usage. These programs run in the background after they have been started. So while they are starting and killing your memory and processor, you try and load a game that wants to use all that processor and memory..but it is already getting used by your start-up applications. So your PC is 'overloaded', usually this only makes your PC slow, very slow, for a period of time until those programs are no longer using up resources.

My suggestion... wait a few minutes after you turn it on, before playing a game.... or get more memory and/or a faster processor...

or you could stop some of those app's from running at startup... but giving it a few minutes to 'start-up' is the best solution.
