My computer seems to be overheating quite a bit when playing WoW. It's not overclocked or anything, and all of the fans and vents are clean. The most unusual thing is that WoW is the only game in which it ever occurs. Much more graphically intensive games such as Crysis and Fallout run just fine at max settings without ever causing the computer to shut off. Is anyone else having this issue? I'm thinking about emailing Blizzard support about it, but I doubt they'll be of any help. It's gotten to the point where I can't even finish a random dungeon because my computer shuts off half-way through it. Sad

Anyway, I'll still get on now and again.

On a happier note, classes are over for me, so I'll be online much more often, providing my computer lets me. I still have finals this week, but they aren't particularly time consuming, so I have time for more important things (ponies, WoW, etc.)

I take it you've tried updating directx and then updating your drivers?

Yeah, that was the first thing that I tried.

It's possible that it's a hardware issue. When I get home later this week, I'm going to open my computer up and see if I can find anything wrong with it. I might replace the thermal pads and paste as well, to see if that helps things at all.

I solved the issue. I opened my computer up and gave it a good cleaning. Everything seems to be running much better now. Thanks for your advice.
