Default Computer randomly shutting off

So, just built my first computer. When im on cod4, after about 5min of playing. computer suddenly just shuts off. I can turn it back on and everything. Currently running on an 600W psu with a gtx260. Do you think it could be that my power supply isnt strong enough?

Your system could be overheating. How are the temps?

What CPU and cooler are you running?

Cooler as in heatsink/fan assembly that cools the CPU.


Is it only COD4 making it crash? have you tried any other intensive games?


Try running a program such as SpeedFan or HWMonitor to see what your temps are.

Yea, without knowing how hot your system is when it shuts down, I could only venture to guess that it may be memory related too.

Are all your drivers up to date and installed?
