|For a few months almost every time i would go to play World of Warcraft if i didn't reset my game settings to the default settings before launching once the game came up my computer would turn off. this problem only happend with World of Warcraft and then it started happening with the Heroes of Newerth beta as well. Once or twice it would happen when i was in the middle of playing other games and now it just did it when i closed iTunes. |
Also at one point i left my computer off for a night then when i went to turn it back on the next day it would turn on for a few seconds then just turn off. after a while of messing with it i finnally got it to stay on and left it on until it would turn off with the first problem mentioned but i would be able to turn it right back on after. I am not sure if this is a hardware problem or not but i am pretty sure it isn't an overheating problem, all my fans seem to be working fine and my temp gauge has always been between 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit.
