  1. My pc crashes after i play any game. What seems to be the problem?
    My specs are not necessary because I just encountered this problem just now.
    I can play games like crysis 2 and the like.
    I don't know what happened but right now every time I play, my pc just suddenly looses the monitor connection then crashes.
    Any idea to fix this?

    and by the way, my graphs card is updated.
    any help is appreciated until I update this posts.thanks

    Does you PC have a GPU? Most of the new ones do, but the older ones sometimes don't and rely on the CPU to process graphics. And for a graphics intense game like Crysis, it has to take a lot of load, which can be a likely cause of PC faliure.

    Believe it or not, I have had read an article on the internet that simple cleaning your computer, can solve 60% of hardware related problems. Give it a try.

    I don't think your USB WiFi receiver could be the problem, unless you are probably playing online. If your WiFi receiver, delays in data transfer, then yes, that could be the problem.

    I used to play Counter Strike on an old computer before, which used to have the same problem. When I gave it to the repair shop, they said it was a graphics unit problem. What was rather amusing that I could also play games like Modern Warfare 2 and Battle Field on it before it failed.
