I'm convinced it's a problem with the computer and not the house, like I said my housemate's computer doesn't suffer from the same problem, and I'm becoming more sure that it's graphics card related as I can have the computer on for hours with no problem, but as soon as I load up a game like championship manager or rollercoaster tycoon it blows after 5 mins.

Having said that I don't know half as much about computers as I'm sure you guys do, so if I'm talking piffle do feel free to tell me to shut up

thanks for all the input so far though guys, it is appreciated.

again, are you USING a surge protector??? Use a different one then, with a higher setting. Or, if you want to risk it, plug straight into the wall.

If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
