Windows 7: Computer crashes 5 minutes after starting a game.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
 
 
Computer crashes 5 minutes after starting a game.

I've been having a problem for sometime now.
Computer games make my Pc crash. This happens about 5-15 minutes after I start any game. I play games such as Runescape, Minecraft, Battlefield. Also when my computer crashes, it makes a buzzing noise. After this happens, I have to manually restart the computer.

Here are my specs:

If you are having a BSOD please




To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.





IF not please


There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Go to the windows log>application tab.

You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.
