Computer keeps powering off by itself when playing games.
I have been using my P4 computer well for about 2.5 years. I have been playing lots of games and watching lots of videos. However, recently, my computer kept on turning off by itself when playing games. Also, once, when I was watching a mp4 file, it turned off. It was weird because I have been playing the game(vice city) for about a year and it just started malfunctioning. So at first I thought it was problem with the videocard.
So this is exactly what happens:
while im playing vice city, computer just turns off.
If I press the power button again right away, it will not turn back on. when I unplug and plug back the power cord, a tiny lightbulb right next to the power cord lights up. and then I can turn my computer back on.
Or if I come back after a while to turn it back on, it turns back on.
One stupid thing I've done was having a new hard drive lean on the video card. (because I wanted it to be a slave drive) After that computer did not turn on so I replaced the hard drive and it worked fine again.
but about 2 months after that, out of no where, this whole turning off by itself staerted.
Please help thanks.
