Computer shut down playing games

By Squashpro

  1. Over the last 2 weeks out of nowhere my PC kept shutting down when i was playing games. It started with the same game i have played for years. I tried another game and same thing, always about 2 mins into the game. I needed a format so i thought i would do it. Same thing after a fresh install of windows, I updated my Video cards drivers radeon X800 XT. Now instead of shutting down, the PC beeps constantly while playing the games, and stops as soon as i finish.

    Is the graphics card to blame?

    I have tried speedfan, the Temp holds at about 39/40c, while it beeps

    Thanks in advance

    Dell Pent 4, 3.4gig, 1.5 RAM

    Are you kidding? Just try each area until you find them (hint: a computer sensor might actually sense computer stuff).

    Under Sensor it shows GPU Temps..

    Temperatures:
    GPU 64 °C (147 °F)
    GPU Ambient 51 °C (124 °F)


    is that right?

    Why just report on one thing - use the report feature (learn about it) and report ALL the temps and voltages.

    CCT its because that is the only thing i found about Temps,
    If you dont want to help, just say so, but i would appreciate just telling me where the actual data i need is.

    I see where you report everything, but i didn't see temps in there.

    Thanks
