Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I like to play Wolfenstien and Gothic II. It use to work, now the computer will just restart after I've played for two minutes. Is there somehting I can do to fix it??
Check your systems cooling - often, games require more system resources, and can dramatically increase the amount of heat your system puts out. Some motherboards have a built-in reboot switch that causes them to reboot the computer once a certain temperature is reached.
When your computer is starting up, hit the "delete" key on your keyboard. This will bring you into your BIOS menu. Be very careful in here if you don't know what you're doing, as you can fundamentally alter the way your computer starts up. Look for an option marked "System Monitor" or something along those lines, and check if there is an option for "auto reboot" or "reboot computer at temperature". If it exists, try increasing it to the next suggested level and then save changes, and exit to your BIOS.
If that doesn't work, try installing new cooling fans or heatsinks according to your processor's specifications.
