My computer keeps restarting itself everytime i play games? How can i fix this?

My computer keeps restarting itself everytime i try to play a game. At first it was only a couple times a day, but now it is every five to ten minutes, when i enter a game. It will just randomly restart itself and i thought it was because of over heating and the dust, so i cleaned it out and made sure that there was no dust in the fan. But i cant seem to fix the problem and im all out of solutions! Can you please help me figure this problem out?

Hi,

It seems your power supply can't supply your computer power as needed so you need to replace your power supply. Use 500 watts pure power supply to avoid this problem.

SOURCE: My computer is restarting all the time. How can I check why this is happening?

First, make sure you have anti-virus software that is up to date and the computer isn?t infected with anything. If it?s not a virus, restart the computer and enter Safe Mode (press F8 while the computer is loading), and wait a few minutes. If the computer doesn?t restart itself in Safe Mode, then you might be having a software problem. If it does, it?s a hardware problem. There are a lot of possibilities. The problem with windows is that it restarts automatically every time there?s a problem and it?s hard to see the message that appears detailing the problem. To change that? go to System Properties in the Control Panel and click on Advanced>startup and recovery>settings. Remove the check no ?Automatically restart?. Next time the problem occurs you?ll get some more information about it that would help you solve it. Good luck.

SOURCE: Saitek ST30 joystick randomly restarting

Try uninstalling the joystick both physically and the driver then reboot. Open the game after the reboot and see if the computer restarts. If it does, then it may be something other than the joystick. I would also try other games if at all possible.

SOURCE: COMPAQ Presario SR1220NX - Heat Sink/Fan

The processor fan should always be spinning; the variance is how fast it is spinning to dissipate the heat. The audible you would hear was most likely the fan spinning faster.

Take off the side of your case and turn on your PC. Is the processor fan spinning?

Also if it is a fan issue you will begin to experience heat issues on your processor that will start to force your PC to shut down in order to protect itself. I don't suggest you allow this to continue to happen as you will eventually fry the processor.

SOURCE: Buffer Override Detected

http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-11184-0.html?forumID=49&threadID=172408&messageID=1754446

A buffer is a place to store data. You have a buffer overrun when to much data is sent to that place. It is used a lot by people who write virus programs and try to start a virus. It would be a good idea to check your entire drive for virus. The above link explains the same thing.

How to fix restarting problem on Asus desktop comptuer?


Tyler
It could be a marginal power supply, gaming puts more requirement, processing power, therefore more power is required by the CPU and the graphics card. And of you are overclocking then it needs even more power and generates more heat. Do you have a video card installed or just using the integrated video?
Another possibility is temperature threshold setting in the BIOS or some control panel tool run within Windows. If the threshold is set too low, the computer will turn off to protect the CPU. It may have something to do with the fan settings. Quiet setting for fans may prevent them from going full speed to cool things down.
Try to run a system monitor tool to see how its handling the extra gaming load.

Everytime i try to play a game online, it doesnt work


What game are you trying to play? Even though the time goes up its been my experience that the download is still going on, even if the status bar seems like its stuck. A couple of games I play, like Socom confrontation signs you out of the PSN but your connection is still up to download the patch. It will sign you back in as soon as it installs it. I know the MAG beta has been notorious for this also. Are you having this happen on every game you try? Disc based versions? Are the games your trying to play multiplayer? Try unhooking your ps3 from its internet connection.. do you still get that error?
Im really curious to know if you were able to get it going or not, Ill be checking fixya here all day so if you have any more questions please post back. ill reply

Error Message For Petz 5


When you reinstall the game do you click 'yes' to 'do you want to save your petz'?
You need to click 'no for it for work. You will lose all your petz.. but its the only way (that i know of) to get ur game working again.
Also, when you go to play the game, go to My Computor and click on Petz5 to play, instead of playing it from the shortcut or whatever. That means you need to have the disk permentently in.
And, when you fastforward (time glitch) only forward one day at a time (opening up petz after you forward, closing, and going forward another day).
Hope it works :)

Inserted disc press play grinding sound and disc left scrapped


If your xbox box it's new I would take it back and get another one, becase you do probable have problems with your dvd drive and it will keep scratching the games. the laser on the drive doesn't work as hard when playing a music cd than when it plays a game or a dvd.

If you don't want to take it back, then play a couple dvds and if it reads then fine then you could try again. it shiudn't take more than ten second to read a game so if its taking longer just get it out.

Ps3 freeze


Hi,
look on Sonys website for patches et,c.
Sometimes they launch games, and realise that theres glitches.
they then create patch-files which you can usually download, to update your console.
if this does,nt work. then you,ve possibly got a faulty game.
Exchange It.
