Windows 7: Pc crashes when playing any game

Pc crashes when playing any game

I've been having a problem for sometime now.
Computer games make my Pc crash. This happens about 10-15 minutes after I start any game. However, most games only crash when the window fits the whole screen and some games crash whenever it fits the whole screen AND whenever the game is resizable

For example, whenever I play Runescape in fullscreen, it crashes in about 10 minutes after I start the game. This doesn't happen whenever I have it in a resizable window. However the game, Minecraft, crashes in fullscreen AND in a resizable window.
I already tried updating my drivers but according to my computer, my drivers are all updated to date.


Here are my specs:

Hi Pablosonicfan .don't have any solution but the same has been happening with me for the last 4 weeks or so, point is I have exactly the same graphics card as you. Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas and Sims 3 all used to run fine but now crash after almost exactly at the same amount of time, about 8 minutes. Everything is dead apart from the no signal message on the monitor.
Not much help in the way of solution, but shows it does happen and I have yet to find a way around it.
