Ill keep this as short and as informative as possible.
I haven't used my computer for gaming for a couple of months, and now I decided to try this new Prince of Persia forgotten sands game. And 30-40 minutes into the gameplay I started sensing a burnt smell coming from my computer and I noticed it was emitting really hot air from its back fan.
I'm pretty sure that the computer has all system requirements for the game, I just don't know whats causing the overheat since when I opened the computer to see whats wrong I noticed that both the gpu, cpu and power source were hot. The graphics card was specially hot though.
Intel Q9550 @2.83GHz
ATI Radeon HD 4870
Windows 7 32Bit
Also, I did a test: I played the game for 30 minutes then checked the temperatures. The cpu was at at an average 50
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
