  1. I have a problem. When I am playing a game or watching MLB Gameday, my computer turns off after about 15 minutes, then has trouble turning back on for a couple minutes.

    Some ideas thrown around on another forum have been power supply and video card/cooling fan.

    Any ideas?

    It could be related to your power supply. Can you please post your specs. Also it could be because your CPU or a component in your computer is overheating.

    That pretty much says it all...

    What kind of stuff do you want to know for the specs?
