  1. Hi I Seem To Have An Issue With My PC, It's Randomly Shutting Down When I'm Playing Games Which Need Little Effort For My Computer To Run...But The Unusual Case Of This Is That When It Shuts Down, I Am Unable To Turn It Back On Unless I Wait Around 5-10 Minutes...The Same Thing Also Happens When I Try To Restart My Computer, It Would Just Turn Off And I Have To Wait Again.
    I've Searched The Threads On This Forum And Checked For Any Leaks On The Capacitor, Heating Problems, Even Switched The Jumpers Around etc...But The Mainboard Seems Fine...I've Also Changed My Power Supply From A 430w To A 600w, Which Didnt Seem To Make A Difference...So I'm In Desperate Need Of Any Kind Of Help...It Would Be Most Appreciated.

    My System Specs:

    Intel 3.60Ghz CPU
    MSI P4N Diamond Series Mainboard
    2x 1 gig of Geil RAM
    nVidia 7800 GTX Albatron
    1x 80 gig HDD
    1x 150 gig HDD

    Thank you so much.

    Edit: Please use proper thread titles from now on. Thanks.
