  1. Hello
    Before i start explaining i did not have this problem before i upgraded + im not the best at computers
    So i bought a new video card (NVIDIA GTX 560 TI) cause my old card was really bad. So when i started playing i tested the graphics on APB(All Points Bulletin), before i upgraded i would only be able to play on low without lag but now i could play on High. And so after 10 mins or so of playing my computer would just turn off and then on agian after about 5 secs. I started it up agian and put the graphics on low and disabled all the special graphics options + put the fan speed on high. Now i can sometimes play for 2 hours and sometime only 30 mins which is really wierd cause GTX 560 TIis suppose to handle atleast High on a game like APB.
    So what i am wondering is what is causing this problem and what can i do to fix it?

    Computer Specs:
    Computer: HP pavilion m9651me
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9400 @ 2.66GHz
    Video card: NVIDIA GTX 560 TI
    Memory:8gb RAM
    OS:Vista & SP2
    Power supply: 300watts(Not sure how much)

    The picture shows the temps of my computer just for sure.

    Thanks :)

    The problem is your power supply, 300 is not enough for gtx 560ti, get 550+, open your case and look at your powersupply,
