    Processor Question

    I have had this computer about a year, not much problem over all. It's just a office type computer, nothing huge as far as gaming, added another stick of RAM in it.

    However, my problem is that, I played WoW, left the house, came back couple hours later, tried loading it again, and my computer rebooted itself. I ran Virus protector, no viruses, so only thing I can assume is the processor overheating.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks. =]

    Hi Realz and welcome to Dev Shed.

    Does the machine only reboot when you are playing WoW ? Does it reboot constantly when the machine is on ? What operating system are you running ?

    There is nothing definite yet, so don't assume that the CPU is failing. There are many reasons this could be happening. The more information you can supply us, the better.
