Did you think it could be an overheating problem? Your computer in such a case turns itself off to prevent damage to the CPU.

Download Coretemp or Realtemp and check you temperatures like Cornio said.

I just installed real temp, its says my computer is 48 to 50 Celsius.

Is that a bad thing?

Oh wait, you said it's just a blackdown while the computer still runs. You should elaborate. Is sound still heard? Do things seems like they work normally despite the black screen? If so, that points to a GPU problem which may be through its drivers or the hardware itself.

I tried it while running resident evil outbreak, it raises to 54.. I dont know if it increases more if I start playing.

Temp doesn't increase with Twisted Metal though.

It turns off without shutting down. As in no sound and the monitor turns off. I dont have these problems before I upgraded my computer.

what graphics card? what does the psu say? oem pc suggest a standard one. and what happens when you play a demanding pc game? it might be power shortage if the psu is too weak. the graphics card sucks the mainboard dry. thus not even bluescreening.

wild guess. Smile

geforce 9500 It can handle games like devil may cry 4 PC version and call of duty games.

okay. that graphics card isn't that heavy. what's the psu tho? manufacturer, and how many watts?

and check the temperatures also with another tool, and WHILE PLAYING some demanding sections.

i'd suggest you also get gpu-z and monitor the graphics card. when it's "underfed" by the cpu it doesn't fully load thus not triggering the blackouts. pc games tend to balance the load by a single core. not triggering it. but pcsx2 wants it all under circumstances. when it's not enough power it goes down.
