    Everytime I start a game it locks up with-in 5 minutes. I have tried several things suggested here to fix this and I am running out of options and I am ready to toss it out the window.

    Make sure it isn't getting too hot. Any components for that matter, but mainly your video card. Is everything identified correctly in your BIOS? Does this only happen when you play games? What games? What have you installed recently to make this happen, or has this ALWAYS happened?

    Sounds like memory or a heating issue to me. It may even extend as a possible hard disk or mother board problem.

    You'll just need to eliminate the possibilities so you can narrow it down to what's causing this issue.

    I would first check your temperatures, then proceed with a memory test
