    Please reboot your computer and press f2 to go to the BIOS and reset it to defaults. If it still occurs see if there is an option in the BIOS to increase the temperature settings of the cpu.

Reply: did you use thermal compound for the cpu? more then what was already on it when they sent it to you, put more on. and make sure in the bios you set the video cache thing to like 64mb or higher. on alot of bios the default setting is like 8mb or 16mb. need to up that.

I get high temp readings on my mobo

Take a look into the fans check if everything is good, if all the fans works fine then check if your computer has any settings on the BIOS overclocked.

This is a problem with the drivers for your motherboard video. You need to download and install the latest intel video drivers from your PC Manufacturer. Intel has "locked" them so you can only use the ones from your OEM PC Vendor.

My computer shuts down after a few minutes

2 possible issues come to mind: 1) the computer is getting hot (CPU, memory or video card), 2) the power supply can't keep up with the demand.

Try using a program that lets your track your computer's internal temperature. System Information for Windows, , is the one I use. Depending on the cause, you may need to increase the ventilation of your case (add fans - slot cooler by the video card, front, back or side panel.). If the CPU is getting hot, make sure that the CPU cooler is working and consider removing it and reapplying a new layer of thermal paste before reattaching the cooler.

If the problem is the power supply, check the specs on your devices (memory, CPU, video card) and the power supply load rating. You may need to upgrade the power supply.

I hope this helps.

(I am not a gamer but the default power supply that came with my computer didn't have enough power for the added memory and video card. I replaced that and added a back fan (spot available), a slot cooler, a drive bay fan and cut a hole to add a side panel fan.)

It very well could be the pwoer supply going bad on you. Some games demand more from a gpu then others. This being said, the more your game needs, the more the card needs. Try troubleshooting with a larger PSU.

System shuts off

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. Chris

My PC shuts down whenever I play a game....i.e. , whenever I do some high processor work. I think its due to some driver problem. I have Mercury PI945GCM motherboard. please specify what all drivers are...

I don't believe you need a driver CD. It seems like when the processor is running high on performace, it is heating up and causing your system to shut off. Try changing the CPU fan to solve this problem.
