My PC configuration is as follows:

  • Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
  • Intel P35 EC M/B
  • WD 500 GB HDD
  • Palit 1 GB 9600 GT Sonic Graphics Card
  • VIP 450 W Power Supply
  • Altec Lansing 2.1 Speakers
  • APC Backup 500

My problem is as follows: Whenever I play games like Medal of Honour - Airborne or Crysis, my system crashes and my PC shuts down automatically. I don’t understand what the problem is. My OS is Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista Ultimate. Kindly reply urgently as this is very important and if you reply through email I will highly appreciate it.

DIGIT ANSWERS: Your PC could be shutting down either because your processor is overheating a lot or your power supply isn’t sufficient enough which doesn’t seem to be the case. You could try swapping out the current power supply with a slightly more powerful one. Be sure to update all the drivers for the motherboard and graphics card before you do.
