PC blacks out after 10 seconds of gameplay

I found this to be the most relevant sub-forum to post this. If it isn't, please correct me.

 

I have a at least a decade old computer. It runs a Pentium 4 and some Nvidia GeForce GT GPU, with Windows XP. When I try to run FlatOut 2, a basic game, for 10 seconds of 3D gameplay, the PC completely blacks out. Like, dead. No video, no audio, no nothing. It only recovers after a hard reset by turning off and on the PSU. The temps are okay, GPU being at average on 50-56 and CPU 50-65. I have tried to unplug the floppy drive, optical drive and case fan but it didn't help. Could the PSU be bad? Could the CPU be bad? Could it be the MOBO?? Please help, I have no idea. It can do video playback wonderful.

 

(The uploaded media is supposed to be a video, wtf ltt forums)

Yeah, you gotta download the video.

 

Yes, I just tried TrackMania Sunrise, and it has done it as well, however only on high graphics details. FO2 is only at native res, otherwise normal I believe.

Wait there's a Flatout 2?? why is this the first time I've heard of it?? I loved that game and played it with some friends, it was really nice.

 

What are the CPU and graphics card models exactly? Sounds like an old PSU

Well, unfortunately I cannot tell you the specs exactly right now. I'll try from the top of my head, but I believe there is a 3 GHz Pentium 4 CPU, and a Nvidia GeForce 7600 GT Graphics Card.

 

And there also exists FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage :) Which is FO2 but it has remastered visuals, more opponents and it's just kind of 'better', I guess

op, that looks like a really outdated PC, might be the Graphics card is toast under heat or the PSU issue, did you check the event logs?
