Hello evrybody. I have looked up some other posts on this site about people having crashing problems and issues playing games. Well I am too... I am not very smart about computer problems and dont know whats going on with my computer most of the time. Anyway My computer crashes and most of the time shuts right off while playing most games such as Skyrim, Civ 5, Spore, Age of Empires 3 and Age of Empires Online (AoEO) It used to be great with AOEO but now wont work right. This computer was built at home and not by a professional or bought from a dealer. Specs are: Processor: AMD Phenom Quad Core 2.40 GHz 32 Bit OS 4.00GB RAM ATX Powersupply with max combined wattage at 500 Watts. with a ATI Radeon HD 5450 Graphics card. IF there is anything needed to help figure this out. I am soon going off to college and will need a good gaming PC haha.
