let's light this candle …literally

hey guys I'm trying to make a client computer overheat -- she keeps saying that it's shutting down and I don't see many thermal events in the event log, plus I cannot seem to recreate the problem (happens most when she plays wow...and just refuse to do that, even as a test!)...anywho--do any of you out there have or know of a program that will just basically work the CPU and GPU over until they overheat? It's ben running fine (and cool) for 2 hours now...

Yesterday sucked. On Friday, I had two random BSODs. On Saturday, I figured I'd try to fix the problem. Based on my reading here, it seemed that I should check and update my device drivers. I ran into a major issue with ATI Catalyst. Basically, it got wedged - could not uninstall the old or...
