Default Random Restart

My computer has been restarting randomly for no reason mostly when i'm
playing MW2 online, recently my graphics card fan has been failing and not spinning and sometimes reaching temp of 110 C i'm not sure if that's the
problem any suggestions?

Default Re: Random Restart

Most likely your GPU is overheating. There could be dust in the fan, or simply, the fan is dying. What temps are you getting in HWMonitor for your GFX card?
