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

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

Thank you

Well, I clicked the link and it wasnt working, so I clicked "if this isnt working click this" but it just went to the same thing
it says unable to find ur GPU :(
just update drivers
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.
Thank you so much ,
I installed a new GPU driver and my laptop works fine now ,
I also change the performance from high to balance.

Thanks again ,
Alright, turn on firewall if its not, then, go to CONTROL Panel, Performance and maintenance, System, Advanced [tab], Startup and recovery [settings], and for automatic restart, uncheck this. WARNING: this may put your computer at risk, but not likely. Always run a virus check after using the internet for more than 30 mins, and clean the hard drive after virus checks. Good luck, hope this helped!
maybe just after you're done with the internet. every 30 mins is a little rough.
thank you so much!!!

i hope this helps! thank you so much!
I solved the same issue by buying a usb fan and placing it on the top of my pc (above the installed fan vent). No problems at all after that.
