  1. Hey guys. First time im using this forum.

    Alrite well my problem is that any PC game i play(Doom 3, Stronghold, Call of duty,etc.) basically crashes my computer within 15 minutes. Now i know its not a BSoD. When my computer crashes and i have sound on, the monitor(HP Compaq LA1905 Wide LCD) says it has "No source signal" and the sound freezes. Only thing i can do is shut down my computer.

    I can surf the web, watch videos, open any program just fine. Only PC games crash my computer. I got no idea why its starting to act like this.


    Heres DxDiag.


    If you need any more info please let me know.

    Hm... from seeing the DxDiag report, I got an idea: try changing your screen resolution. Does that crash the PC within 15 mins? If / If not: keep us posted!

    Edit:
    Are there any errors/notifications/messages just before the crash?

    The drivers were detected it seems...

    Edit 2:
    So games crash the PC within 15 minutes... that sounds like a heating issue. Can you check your CPU temperature via BIOS?

    You mentioned that the screen is the first thing to go belly-up... perhaps the GPU is overheated? How much dust is there lodged onto your graphics card?

    Alright i'll try changing the screen resolution. I dont get ANY warning at all... it just crashes.

    I'll check the tempature right now.

    I'll check on how much dirt there is.

    I'll post results in 30 mins.

    :EDIT:
    Would the event logs also help for info on my problem??

    Ok i changed resolution: Nothing happened.

    :EDIT 2:
    I cant access my BIOs for some reason. It says i need to change the default password to the BIOs but when i try to put in a new password it says "Access Denied". Odd.
