View Full Version : Spontaneous crash?!?!

11-08-2007, 12:19 AM
When I play video games I can play for about 10mins untill the game starts to minimize and maximize randomly for about 5 seconds then my computer goes to the windows shut down screen. I believe it is a hardware problem but not sure what exactly is the problem. It is really weird it does it on all games, from Hellgate:London to starcraft.

The window'ing and proper shutdown sounds like standby/power issue. Is this a laptop?
