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.

Yes it will delete all your saved data.

You want to keep the data, so you need an external storage device (memory card, flash drive and so on). Copy the data on the device. If anything happens to the PS3, you still have your data on the device. When you restore the PS3, you can put back the data.

Keep us posted.

Railroad tycoon restarts computer while playing


Hello there,

Usually this happens when the computer is compatible to run the game but not compatible to keep it playing,,, meaning that the computer can execute the game (get it started) but fails to keep it going. The cause of this problem is the graphics adapter so a new graphics card will solve this problem, and remember when buying a graphics card make sure you buy one that is better than the one the game requires.

I hope i solved your problem.

This game won't load.


1. Does your DVD-drive still work. If not, you know what to do.
2. Have you tried reinstalling the game?
3. If there really is no way you can repair it, you can download a no-cd exe, which means you don't have to insert the CD to play.
Mind you, this is ONLY legal when you actually own the game!
Download the "fixed exe" here:
If you wonder what version to take, just patch the game to the latest version and download the latest exe.

It can be the game installation corrupted, does not look like video adapter problem.
Backup all the files from the game, so that you can recover all old savings, then proceed reinstalling the game, if asked chose to keep saved files.
Do a backup first.

Internet Problems


same problem for me, an update should be released soon to fix the problem. the game seems to randomly work at times however, so you can get lucky by keep trying. also there is a temporary fix. after going and getting stuck on the downloading game settings, unplug then replug your modem. after this the game should work for a few games, but you'll have to do this everytime you wanna play.

hopefully that helps, and hopefully a patch will be released
