    alright whenever im in game or doing anything really on steam or any other game..between 30 seconds and 10 minutes the game just freezes, or the screen goes black and shuts down my computer

    ive done scans and whatnot and checked everything i know....everything says theres nothin wrong

    anybody know what i could do to solve this..im sick of restarting my computer 600 times per day when i wanna play a damn game

    i unistalled steam and cs:s and im reinstalling right now
    if that doesnt work then i guess im shit out of luck...i have no discs or anything that originally came with the computer(lost in a fire)

    just a quick lil update..my comp crashed and since i dont have any of the discs that came with it im pretty much screwed...
    it might be a few weeks before i can get a loan for a new computer :frown:

    for now i can browse the web at work like i am tho

    What are your temps like? Chances are your motherboard and or CPU is overheating ultimately shutting down to stop itself from burning down your house.

    doesnt sound so much like software problem. More like hardware.....something might be overheating as kyle suggested....it might be ur CPU, or GFX card if it occurs while gaming.....try unplugging all power, and air dusting and vaccuming it all out....clean all the fans too

    try to see if u can check ur gfx temps with the nvidia or ATI software that came with the drivers....and download something to check ur cpu temps too

    just an update for ya guys...my computer is fried.
    id go out and buy a new one right now except im $800 in credit card debt, i have no vehicle, my job just cut hours and i have a $1500 tattoo session that i can't afford on tuesday.

    soon tho....soon...im hoping within 3 weeks i'll be good to go again...

    and uhh, if by any chance anybody is from the east coast (ny/pa area) and is going to montage mountain to see slipknot disturbed etc. this sunday, i got my pit ticket reserved so come find me? lol

    im meeting up with 4 or 5 guys from only human gaming...they play mostly cz though

    Define Fried... Like your motherboard is smoldering? Or.... Just wont turn on anymore?

    Anyways, That just plain old sucks. Happend to me a while back luckily I got away with only a damaged IDE port.

    hdd, motherboard, and a few other things are inoperable
    dont ask me how, because i dont know...lol

    im gonna shake this off by going for a ride(motorcycle, not blunt) and going to the bar
    i just sold my truck, and im gonna use part of the money from that to buy a new comp..lol

    whats that supposed to mean?


    ive got 3 in the house..down to 2, but these 2 are for business, not gaming...

    one is strictly for my studio and whatnot..and the other(this one) is pretty much strictly for private files and whatnot

    oOoo sorry to hear about that :frown: Well gaming, hopefully, should be the last priority in life. Life comes first, I have learned.

    ehh...sometimes its nice to be able to sit down and play counter strike or cod4...because if i didnt get all my rage out doing that, id grab a few of my guns and play counterstrike around town...

    no im not psycho...lol
