Everytime you start playing what?

I once tried uninstalling IE from Windows, there's even an option for it. Out of the blue I would get a system shutdown message after 2 minutes of operation on every single boot.

Hmm that doesn't sound good. Have you overclocked any of your components? That sounds like an overheating problem, especially if it happens when you start playing 3D games that put a load on your GPU.

Try running all the basic diagnostics (chkdsk, scandisk, virus scasnners) and report back to us

I dont play any games on that computer except for CM01/02

I've done all that scandisk shit. noffin.
clean.

plus since ur said overheating, do you think putting a table fan next to my comp will help? (my CPU has no casing)

I'd only suspect overheating if you've overclocked your CPU, or if you lived in Central Australia

You didn't answer whether you've overclocked your hardware or not

If so, yes, a fan would help. For the long-term, though, I'd have to recommend a more permanent solution, possibly heat sinks or water cooling (if u wanna spend the bling)

hmm.... looks like a problem with the RPC...
My gosh, we have a genius amongst us :rofl:

Deej, what worries me is:

1) The stuff in the background is most likely what you do in your spare time, as opposed to what you were doing while waiting for that error message to pop up again

2) You've got pastry in the left side of your taskbar

3) You managed to take a screenshot of your desktop, paste it into paint and save it within 4 seconds!? :eek:


btw why are you so ashamed of what you do on ur comp that you have to blackbox it from us :(

lets look at this scenario.

a. error comes up, saying: "x seconds before shutdown"(where x is a variable)
b. opens up paint "x - y seconds before shutdown"(y- time taken to open paint)
c. press "print screen, biatch" and then clicks "paste" button "x - y -z"(z= time between open paint & printscreen). proceeds on to save but that doesnt affect the time.

could it be that x - y - z =4 seconds?

BASICALLY what im saying is the time printed on the screen was not the initial time but the EXACT time printscreen occured. and it may have occured late because he took the time to open up paint.
