PC crashing while playing games

I have run out of ideas on this one...I have an Inspirion 580s that crashes while playing some, not all

games from Big Fish...The Hard drive has been replaced, the Mother Board/Graphics card has been replaced...I have

changed Power Management options...It looks like it goes into Power Save mode,

then re-boots...Any help would be appreciated...Thanks

 

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU 540 @ 3.07 GHz

Intel(R) HD Graphics v 8.15.10.2182

Intel(R) 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset Family PCI Express Root Port 1 - 3B42 v 6.1.7600.16385

Hi mimi9603, Your Integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator HD, if Im not mistaken is a chip on your motherboard. What I would do is to put a graphics card like the ATI 4550 HERE, or the 4650 HERE to play your games. But I must say the the slimlines are not really gaming models, mainly because they are hard to upgrade.

Sapphire has a 5570 in low profile that would be a huge step up from integrated graphics in gaming performance.
