Default Computer Issues - BSOD, Random shut offs, and Running slow

For the past month my computer has been getting a lot of blue screens of death with error codes 0x0000001e, 0x000000a, 0x0000001a. Anywho, I've seemed to have fixed those for the most part by upgrading my BIOS and other drivers... but what really is frustrating me is that whenever I play a game such as World of Warcraft (don't judge me) my computer will start to run really slow and I mean... really slow. My game will freeze and it becomes unplayable. I have a CPU and memory gauge that shows how much % is being used and usually about 80-95% of my memory is being used with 20-50% of my CPU with only World of Warcraft running. I have nothing else open except for my GPU fan control which I don't use all the time and doesn't seem to make much of a difference if it is open or not. I've run MemTest86 and everything passes okay. I was hoping someone could enlighten me on what could be causing this problem? Is it my CPU running to hot? How can I check my CPU temp without having to go into my BIOS?

Also, my computer tends to randomly shut off completely as if the power as been cut off. Could this be related to my other issues?

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Processor
Mobo: Asus M4A89TD Pro/USB3
GPU - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460
RAM - 4 GB DDR3
HDD - 1 TB

Maybe you have malware. Try running something like MalwareBytes.

+1

That was the first thing that came to mind for me, too.

Default

Also check Task Manager. Go to Processes and check for anything with a weird name. If you don't know what it is google it.

You can also check what is starting up on you computer when you turn it on by going to Start, Run then type in 'msconfig' and press enter and go to the startup tab. Think this is how you do it, but I can't check because I'm on my iPod.

Hope you get it sorted!

are the fans going like mad,
open up the destop or laptop and locate to the processor and check the thermal compound levels are not dry and make sure it is covering the processor.

the machine cuts out becuase it is protecting the system remember the processor is the brain of the pc so if it gets to hot or can't cope the pc will shut down to protect it self. if you are not Comfortable with the process take it to a technician or someone who is so you don’t mess it up but if you are confident check the processor thermal compound levels this is a common sighn of what you have mentioned

Kind Regards
