Hi,

I have a problem with my computer, whenever I watch a video, after about 10-15 minutes it shuts down.

I've recently bought this desktop. It works fine for all other tasks, such as internet, music etc. I have also tried several media players and all of them just shut down my system. I have NVIDIA Geforce FX5500 as graphics card.

Please help me!

System Configuration: Windows XP Internet Explorer 7.0

Hello,

This seems to be a driver issue. Try to download the latest driver from this link.

Thanks!

In most cases is a driver issue but sometimes it can be by stuck keys of the laptop.

I had a laptop that I dropped water on it, still working but a few keys were sticked. In this case I recommend disconnect the laptop keyboard from the mother. And obviously keep the drivers up to date.
