If the solution of "moinsama" doesn't work, I believe your VGA was damage or full of dust. To solve you problem try blowing first your video card to clean it from any dust particles that may be the cause of frequent direct shutdown and try operate your computer. If the problem persist, I suggest changing your VGA and for sure your problem will be solve now. As you do it, don't forget to install its driver so that the graphics of your computer will not look big and stretch.

If I play any games not open


Good day. In regards to your problem you can try this several steps for you to know why you cant play any games.

1. Before you install a game you need to make sure that your computer meets the Minimum Requirement for each game.

2. You can check if your pc has the latest or the recommended direct X version for all games required this one. The accepted direct x for most game is at least DirectX 9.0c

3. You can check you're direct x version by doing these steps
> go to Start
> click on run
> type in dxdiag and press OK
> it will open a screen that will tell u the directx version of your pc
Note: if you don't have at least a 9.0c version might as well download it from the net

4. If you're computer has the updated direct x you need to check you're video card
5. Base on my experience most of the games require this computer spec

AT least a Dual core processor 2.6ghz
1GB Ram
Nvidia 9200 or better

So you might also check this site to check if your pc can run a specific game :

Hope this help you a bit regarding your game issue for your pc. Thanks for using Fixya and have a great day.

My lenovo ideapad z560(core3i,2gb ram) keeps shutting down automatically.... havent been able to identify any specific reasons for it.. sometimes its stuts down just after bootin...or jst in d middle of...


I suggest try to check these things on your machine.

->Check if the machine is Overheating.
->Check which part of the machine is Overheating.
->See if the Fan of the machine is Running(Feel if the air vent of the machine)

Cause of Automatic Shutdown:
-Hard Drive
-Fan is not working

Most likely those are the cause of the machine keeps on shutting down unexpectedly.

5. 5 flashes is + brake shutdown

Sony Vaio Laptop vgn-sz330p does not shut down


This problem is generally caused by a hanging program or the registry is corrupt.

The best way i have found to resolve the problem is download a small program called "Superfast", not only does it shut XP down it does it in half the normal time and doesn't effect the computer in any way.

Download and install Superfast here >>>>>>>>>>

Once you have it installed try it, you'll be amazed!!!
