but how. since it shuts down....
well study the time when it shuts down.Use program that tests temps, and than after half a minute see what temperatures are

i cant find a app that monitors the ATI graphics card temperature. CPU is easy though.

HOLY SH*T!

If we didn't know it was a heat issue before, we do now!

I do want to check one more thing though:
Download and run FurMark. I bet it will crash the comp, but there is a temp monitor, so let us know the temps it reaches.

It is overheating in the extreme. You can open it up and blow it out with air if you want, or send it back and tell them the problem.
