Hello, im having trouble figuring out why my computer shuts off when i play a game. I took it apart and checked it and even replaced the gel that goes in the heat sync and video card, my motherboard seems fine. All my hardware is good so i put it back together and it still is shutting off. can somebody help me please?

thank you for your help

4 gb is usually plenty

Is it always the same game ?

Are you playing online ?

Check out the game compatibility with your pc. Here is how:
