Had a similar problem. Whenever I played then it would after just freeze and shutdown. Was also getting pretty hot. The solution was real simple:

At the rear left corner of my 7720 is the heat exhaust vent. Right next to it is the power supply socket. The end of the power cable (jack end) had a large plastic casing around it, larger than a AA battery. Because of how the laptop was set up on my desk this casing around the cable lay right against the exhaust vent and stopped the hot air from escaping. All I did was turn the power cable so it faced right instead of left and, hey presto, all was sorted.

Why "OpenGL/Direct3D" Problem ?

This isn't a solution as of yet but if you have updated everything and it runs fine for 14/17 minutes it could be that the card is overheating. I have run into this several times with gamers. The load on the card causes it to heat up more when playing games. Check and make sure all vents and the fan are clean for one. Over time they will clog and not cool your CPU and Video Card.
In other cases the video card is just not up to it. It will play for a time, overheat and then distort or stop working at all. Is that card adequate for the games you play?
One gaming laptop I worked on overheated and soon the graphics card would not work at all. Had to replace the motherboard.
First make sure it's not overheating, Second,check compatibility of your hardware to your game. Third, double check your drivers, completely uninstall then reinstall.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck

It's impossible to answer this question. What shuts itself down, the game, the entire computer/console? You need to list the details of your computer or game console and list what kind of hardware you have, as in: CPU, RAM, motherboard, video card.....sigh...

I've got a nVidia Zotac Geforce GT240..a few days later whenevr i played a game it start a buzzing noise...Now whener i play after 5 mins the monitor stops displaying anything and im forced to res

It sounds like the shutdown is due to the card overheating. Does your card have a fan on it? If so that is probably where the buzzing noise came from. The fan either broke or is disconnected and thus the card is overheating. Try blowing out the fan with compressed air and making sure it is properly connected. If it is broken or you have no fan you may need to order a replacement fan or heat sync to fix your problem or get a new video card.

the laptop is overheating and shuts down to prevent hardware failure. Use canned air to blow dust out from the fans that may improve it a little.

Toshiba satellite p105-29722 overheating/vid car

I had the same problem. I sent it back in to Toshiba and they fixed it.

The problem was the fan on my motherboard. I think it had some bad bearings because it would run sometiems and not others; and when you would hear it run; it would do a lot of clicking.

It was overheating the core, and while I was playing games it would just stop processes.

Just call up Toshiba and tell them; they should let you send it into the UPS store for free. It will take about a week or two.

As playing Xbox 360 system shuts off two red lights occurs.

Two red lights mean your 360 is over exceeding the inside temperature. Your fan must not be working at all and your 360 is overheating tremendously. That is what I know about the 2 red lights. Im not sure what to tell you to fix this but to just call 18004myxbox.

I was wondering what is the best way to stand the xbox up?

If you dont want the issue of scratching lay it flat on its side. That way it cant tip over while on and ruin a game or dvd. The bugs so far have been worked out of the system, there is no real way to tell untill we start getting some feedback on the use of the 3rd gen systems.
