Hi there , not shore if this helps but , when your playing game the graphics uses more power to run the 3d display , if the system is completely restarting from bios the power supply may not be good enuff to support this , you could try disconnecting something your not using to test this like a cd or dvd rom .

Have you installed anything new lately into your P.C.? Graphics card , Ram, etc.. does this only happen when starting games?
Perform 'Disk Cleanup' and 'Disk Defragmenter' both found by clicking 'Start button', 'All Programs', Accessories', 'System Tools', then select 'Disk Cleanup' 1st and finish that before selecting ' Disk Defragmenter', When completely finished reboot P.C. and try your games. If it still happens it might be a simple thing like replacing the Power Supply Unit (PSU). The P.C. sounds like it's demanding more power when starting games and the P.C. restarting to protect itself.
Is this new system? Make sure everything is sound in device manager. If it's not get latest drivers from manufactures website. If everything seems fine and this is new system you probably need to get "codecs". If system is running Windows XP try "nimo codec pack" or "xp codec pack" just google it, download install. restart your computer and everything should be fine. For other operation systems you need to do a little research on google. "video sound codecs Windows Vista" for example. Good Luck!
The first link are the system requirements for Wolfteam the sec link will be to the reccomended video card granted you can go higher quality above and beyond this but this will play the game well providing that the rest of your system is up to par I currently have the same card and have no isses playing games such as battlefield MOHA NFS games wish the best of luck to you
If you are using an onboard graphics card, it is very likely that the system is overheating with this game as the game requires greater resources than the system can offer. Best thing is to check the games vendor info website and see what graphics cards are recommended for it.
Memory may help you, it also may not. One thing that can cause a system to run slow is from alot of startup programs and services. Also an infection could cause it to run slow to. I recommend lettnig a professional help you.
Most often restarts during games or other heavy duty tasks are from the following reasons
1.) Lack of power. If your Power supply unit is less than 450W then this is highly likely.
2.) Overheating. If your PC's bios has temperature reading sensors then after it is warmed up open the BIOS by press <Delete> after the logo disappears and go to the entry that informs you of temperature... If your seeing a Temp ove 45-50 degrees Celcius your runnin too hot. Get a better heatsink or other cooling apparatus (ie... liquid cooling or peltier) depending on your budget and your technical skill.
3.) Video card over heating/power issues run the PC with the cover off. Watch your Video card. is the Fan on it spinning? Does you Video card have a seperate power adapter? If so is it Fully seated.
4.) Mismatched memory. the memory adapter you installed does it have the same specifications as other memory that is also in your system. Sometimes if their slightly off and the computer sets the timing for the faster memory instead of the slower memory then the system chugs along at a speed that the slow module cant handle and it fails momentarily.
5.) Driver conflict error. Sometimes an older driver just gets in the way of other devices that want the same resources. (Particularly if you are using the drivers that came with the Video card) Go to Nvidia's website download and install the latest drivers for your card and Operating system combination.
Hopefully these tips will help you get you Fragging in no time.
Hi Rohit, you're CPU should not be running that hot & that is why you're system is restarting. Very soon the CPU will burn up.
Replace the CPU's HeatSink & fan assembly as soon as possible. The link I have posted is a list of the CPU's you're board can support. http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d101ggc/sb/CS-025906.htm
Even at 70'c, that's too hot also. You're game is not putting that kind of load on you're CPU.
Graphics problems are always an issue when playing games on PC,s. you need a hell of a system to Run top Notch Graphics.
Hence the XBOX 360/ PS3 are solely dedicated to running such graphics. Bear in mind that a Computer Multi-tasks. just to startup and run a windows operating system, is already using up a fair share of Your memory ( RAM ) And system resources.
Certain games require functions from the graphics cards to be present. i.e Anti-aliasing Or Accelerated graphics support et,c.
If you look at the games Minimum requirements, such as operating system-minimum memory-recommended graphics card et,c. This should point you towards what your system is lacking. You are probably lacking in Memory or graphics card Memory or Spec.
heres a suggestion. try freeing up some system memory, by closing down applications, that are not being used.
Also you could check the properties of your Graphics card, And maybe alter a few settings if supported by the Card.
Also ensure that you have the DirectX drivers installed that supports your O/S. Downloadable From Microsofts website.
hope this points you in the Right direction.

I'd be leaning towards a hardware problem most likely your video card. Could you post some more specs on your computer eg video card(type, size, slot type) how much ram you have now, what operating system your running, what resolution your trying to run these games at and what options eg anti-aliasing etc. and what size monitor. The extra information will make it easier for me to provide a more accurate solution to your problem.
