hi. when i play daytona usa after about several minutes the pc turn off. its seems that the game is too heavy for the pc or something. there is any solution? thanks. note: its happen in the past with scud too and i think that we (actually my brother) clean the pc inside and solve the problem but im not sure about this time since scud work just fine as far as i aware..

turns off? Or randomly reboots
Could be your psu can't provide enough power, or could be pc is over heating. Pop the side of the case off and check the fans aren't clogged solid with dust

Daytona USA 2 is a bit heavier on the GPU if I recall. It pushes more geometry around. So it's entirely possible you're hitting some sort of thermal protection threshold. I've never seen such a thing in practice on desktop PCs, actually.

Reminds me of MechWarrior 2. "Heat level critical. Shutdown sequence initiated." You aren't by any chance running Supermodel inside of a BattleMech, are you?
