  1. Hey I hope somebody can help me, my friend has a computer he's built himself (plenty of previous builds with no troubles) and when he plays games he gets beeping every 3 or 4 seconds for a minute or two then a minute or so later it restarts. Windows shuts down like as if he's told it to. No bluescreens or complete powerdowns.

    Apparently when playing test drive it happens when he's racing and in pro evo 2008 it happens if he stays in the tactics screen too long.

    Specs are:

    Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 Motherboard
    Intel E6600 Dual core processor
    650 Watt Black Silent atrix PSU
    Sapphire X1950Pro 256mb 2xDVI PCI-Express Graphics Card
    20x Liteon LH-20A1P-487C DVD±RW DVD-Writer
    2 gig Corsair xms2 ddr2 6400
    windows vista
