Windows 7: PC reboots every time after I play a game for 10/20 minutes

PC reboots every time after I play a game for 10/20 minutes

Hey everyone,

So, I have a serious problem. Every time I play a game, it starts okay, nothing is wrong, etc. etc., but after ten or twenty minutes, the game crashes, my screen says that it has no input (the sound keeps active for like 5 seconds), and then my pc just reboots... And if I let the pc reboot from itself, it keeps saying that windows could not be started, so I have to do repairs and stuff.
And it does this with every game, exept battlefield 2 XD
I hope you guys can help me

NeeQr,
The very first place to start is open up the rig and clean and blow out the fins and all fans paying close attention to CPU and GPU's.

And what do I exactly do when I 'pay attention to CPU and GPU's'? (a)

Please blow out with compressed air or brush carefully with paint brush with a vacuum close by our move all outside. The idea here is after several months the fins of the coolers get lots of dust build up even in clean environs. As well please look at the front air intake for the case, you may find a filter in front of a case fan and it will be completely blocked.

Ahh well, I already cleaned my pc a short while ago, but when I was just surfin' around on the internet, I saw a small box on the right of my screen that said 'install updates now?' So I did.. And omg, after that I haven't had any reboots anymore.. Guess I should pay more attention to those updates, and indeed install them
I am sorry that I've taken your time (a) But I thought everything was up to date and all..
Again, sorry and thanks very much.

Glad it was something simple, I do updates daily for AV along with daily quick scans then set MS updates to show and then I install asap. Please mark this post as solved as its an option for you as Thread Starter.
