I am currently experiencing a problem with my computer on which it tends to shut down every time I play Online Games. It has a Intel Core i7 processor with 4 gigs of RAM and running on 2 GTX285 graphics card in a dual SLI channel in a Windows 7 Platform.
The game will load for a couple of minutes, but suddenly the graphics becomes distorted and suddenly the computer just shuts off. What could be causing this problem? Thank you.
PC Shuts Down when loading High Graphics Games
Sometimes if your PC shuts down while playing a graphics intensive game then its usually to do with one of your components overheating. Make sure that you have adequate airflow in your case by tidying cables and that your CPU HSF is up to the job. If not then I suggest a new meatier HSF preferably with a copper base at least. Install a temperature monitoring program to help see what temps your CPU is running at.
You can also try the following options:
Changed the game card in order to check out the defective card.
Installed another hi power PSU.
Change the mobo.
Clean out the PC case thoroughly.
Run an Antivirus on Hard Disk.
Install latest bios and chipset drivers.
Email Intel for any incompatibility issues with ATI cards.
Try above things and if you encounter any problem feel free to ask queries.
