it could be a nvidea driver install(clean install option not working proper) issue i had the sudden shutdown happen here too but not in fallout new vegas

since then i do the thing myself with driver sweeper

try a uninstall video drivers and clean with driver sweeper then reboot and install the latest video drivers and reboot again


you can ignore the 1 file failed to validate (there are several games that do that)

Sounds like a temperature issue to me, especially since it happens in multiple games after an amount of time. CPU, or GPU, but more likely CPU since it's a full shutdown instead of throttling, is probably overheating and the PC is shutting down to protect itself.

Please list your full system specs and your CPU & GPU temperatures under full load, i.e. while gaming.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480

under load the CPU is like 95,F

GPU im guessing its much hotter the 480 runs super hot & i have the fan on max at all time. the Thermal Electric cooler seems to keep the cpu cool

now i can play the game for a long time now & i dont have a crash or a death but i played saints row :3rd and it would die maybe 3 to 2 sec's in or maybe last a bit then die no lag no nothing just dead no blue screen of death no nothing
