Pc crashes, mostly after playing a game for a bit

After about 10 minutes of playing warcraft or heroes of m&m, my pc crashes and will not turn on unless I unplug the power from the back and switch the on/off button to off...for at least 3 minutes. I thought it was a power supply problem, but after replacing the power supply, it still happens. Could it be the board? I have an ati radeon 9250 graphics that not compatible?

Sound like it a heat issue perhaps? Monitor your cpu and gpu temps during game using rivatuner.

Are you running anything overclocked at all?

Try running orthos for 8hrs or occt for 2hrs to see if your pc is stable. (and monitor temps too)

Change your operating system to windows xp. update Chipset drivers, Graphics drivers and make your computer have a nice air flow by cleaning inside where the fan is. use a powerfull air blower when laptop is powered off and without battery..

dont put too many information on your hard drive.

Leave a space of a bout 15GB free space.

Your games will never crash again.

good luck

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.)

I have a intel dg31pr motherboard with e7200 processor.i want to overclock it.plz help me............

Overclocking is something you should only do if you are fairly experienced with computers. Most motherboards that overclock are made for overclocking as are the processors used. Good overclocking requires a balance of increased FSB, multiplier, increased voltage to the ram and sometimes the processor as well, and excellent cooling. It is easy to burn out your system by overclocking. There are many things you should know first. For that reasion alone it is impossible for me to tell you how to overclock it.

But, go to This is a site made for people who want to overclock. Read and browse through the forums. You will also find some excellent by the numbers guides there. Sigh up and jump in. When you perform your first overclock, come back and tell me. I've been overclocking since 2002.

I don't sonsider myself a "Game Man" but most of these programs are long and they require lots and lots of RAM. Where are going with 512 MB of RAM probably 100-130 Mhz. I don't think that you can play hardly any game (and fast) unless you have enough RAM. My thought is that you need at least 1-2 GB of min. 400 Mhz or more if your machine will do it. You are lucky, it works this well. Has PCCHIPS said that this version of the MB is intended for "Gaming"? I will contact PCCHIPS and ask them. One thing is for sure. You cannot play any speed or any length unless you have enough RAM. RAM is the temporary place to put the results and continue until they are needed again. Please get back to me and tell what happened... This is the way we get graded.

AZUS M2N68-AM is good for graphic and gaming?

Yes this board can be a solid gamming platform depending on how you plan to set it up. This is a uATX form factor, with onboard video graphics. You may be able to play older less video intensive games such as Diablo II or maybe even World of Warcraft with this board as is. However I would not recommend it this way for gamming.

With a mid range PCI Express video card you could play most of todays popular video games at medium settings. ($75.00 to 150.00) With a higher end PCI Express video card this board could be a very good gamming platform. ($150.00 to $300.00)
