    Re: PC shutting down automatically when trying to play a HD game?

    Since you are observing this problem from the past few days, there is a big possibility that overheating of the internal components is causing the glitches you are facing. Over a period of time, due to accumulation of dirt on the cooling fans of the cabinet and the processor the temperature on the processor exceed the temperature limits for the safe operability.

    Many computers today are designed to turn off or automatically reboot if the computer, processor, or other device in your computer gets too hot in order to stop any ongoing hardware intensive application. To solve this issue, first of all make sure that the fan on the power supply is working and if possible clean your computer's cabinet thoroughly.

    Apart from Overheating the other possible reasons which could cause this troubles are :-


    Hardware issue or error.
    Computer virus.
    Issue with operating system.
    Other failing hardware

    To check for hardware errors what you can try is, remove the hardware on the computer that is not needed and check if it's functioning smoothly. As far as Virus trubles are considered all I can say is get a good Antivirus

    Hello friend,


    PC shutting down automatically when trying to play a HD game?

    PC shutting down automatically when starting HD game can be due to many reasons . Incompatible game with operating system can be one of the reasons for crashing of system . Various reasons which can be responsible for PC shutting down automatically are listed below :


    • Hardware problem like RAM Loose .
    • Overheating of parts like ..RAM , Video card or processor .
    • Incomparable Game config .
    • Corrupted game files by virus .
    • Not enough hardware available for game .

    From above reasons which is most probable is Not enough hardware resource available for game to run . Overheating is also main problem in some of the cases .

    So you need to check the minimum requirements for game before running the game which can be found in manual of Game .

    Hi,

    HD Games requires high graphic and a high resolution for the game to play.The games which you installed like NBA or Call of Duty requires a good graphic card and good storage capacity.As you said that you have 500 GB Hardisk and 4 GB RAM which is well enough,but can be problem because of 1.6 Ghz Processor.Not telling that there is problem in your processor but sometimes HD Games with a High Resolution can create a Problem.
    The Second Thing can be an heat issue.Kindly check are the cooling fans working properly.When Playing games,your computer cpu is used much more,graphic cards are used much more.They Create more heat. If a Computer gets over the Pre-Configured temperature,the computer Restarts or Shutdown.What you can do that Replace your Heat Sink and add more fans to your computer.. Probably best to take to a computer repair.. If you have no idea how to or look up on google how to. It is relatively simple, however sometimes you need to remove the whole motherboard to place the grip on heatsinks.
    Check this is all this might will solve your problem.......

    Re: PC shutting down automatically when trying to play a HD game?

    Hi,
    this is the problem which many other users are also facing..
    This problem is due to the heating problem in the system ..
    And as you have mention that you are playing HD games and you have not graphic card ...this will make you system more Warm ..
    I will suggest you to put you system in the cool place and decrease the resolution of the game it will make you system run smoothy...
    And make some space around the Cpu fan OR Laptop fan so that the warm air can easily move out of there... this will make you system cool..
    By doing all this you will not face this problem in the future..

    Hope you have got your answer...

    Hi Friend ,

    You need a Good graphics card to play high definition games on you PC as your processor is 1.6 GHz .

    If you want to play these games without graphic card then make these settings

    - Right click on the icon of game and click on properties
    - Now go to compatibility tab
    - Disable visual themes , run in 256 colors

    It will decrease your graphics but will enhance you PC performance while you are playing HD games

    THANKS!!

    HELLO GUEST

    I don't know PC is shutting down only when you play this game,or and when you play other games?
    Anyway it will be good to check the temperatures in your pc. Maybe some fans are not working good.
    Download
    SIW[FONT=verdana, geneva, lucida, lucida grande, arial, helvetica, sans-serif] for free and check your temperatures there. Also it will be good to run a full scan on your PC with [/FONT]Malwarebytes.


    But still, If your computer is shutting off completely, it usually indicates something is overheating. If Speedfan is showing nothing is overheating, perhaps you can try reinstalling the game. Also, ensure your settings in-game are configured properly.

    Thanks Dear.
    Have a Good Day
    Enjoy
    Regards Libin
