Today i started up Team Fortress 2 like allways. After 2 minuttes it crashed.... but it was not a normal crash.. my whole computer was stuck even my motherboard did'nt respound (I could not shutdown with kabinet buttons). The only thing i could was to turn off the power.

After i tried again and it happend AGAIN!!!

Have you done some overclocking on your CPU, RAM or Video card ? If so, maybe you should reduce frequencies. If not, tell us if the crash happens with other games.

Happends with EVERY single 3D game. Even CS 1,6 makes this crash that completly locks my pc up.

Try restoring EVERY frequencies you have modified to their original values.

I overclock my computer in winter, but when summer comes, i reset those settings because it has the bad habit to crash often.

Have you updated your drivers recently or installed new programs ? Some nVidia drivers were really bad and made my computer crash (but that was years ago).

I used the SAME drivers for 2 moths whitout ANY problems.

The GPU is 50 degress when i start my PC. Thats pretty normal... but when i play any game it crashes.

My computer is 30 degrees when I start it. 74 is maximum during even the most intense applications. 50 at start is just not normal. I think either you need to get a new fan, or maybe the thermal compound was incorrectly applied. Again check your GPU temprature. It should be around 67 degress. I have the same card and the same CPU as you. The reason is that the fan is default at 29% of the original speed. Turn the GPU fan to 100%, it should go down to 50 degrees if not less.
Also your CPU fan should be at 100% also. Change that if you have not done so. Tell us the chipset and the manufacturer of your Motherboard. It should help us. I have an XFX 680i lt.

Sounds like your computer's running too hot. Find some program to monitor temps (like NvMonitor). 8800GT's are known to be ovens (except for mine cos I'm skillful). Are you using stock cooling for your Q6600 (sounds crazy but are you?)?

    not sure. I haven't had that issue. the only computer related issue I've been having is with my isp and the smtp server getting authentication errors randomly. I'm going to have to call them again. this started happening again after changing my password.

    you may have to check the box that says "stay signed in." psx place used to have a problem like this for random people, including myself. that will prevent being logged out or it did anyway.
