    After playing for 5-10 minutes the monitor is shut down

    After im playing in this case battlefield bad company 2 or now it was battlefield 4 after like 5-10 minutes i hear my video card is working very hard it's fan and the temperature is like 110-117c.

    Then after more 5 minutes or so the monitor is shut down and the pc is frozen i can't click anything only can restart the pc. It's like the pc is in sleep mode but frozen.
    I don't have any blue screen before it.

    I'm not sure if the problem is drivers like the video card drivers memory or virus.
    I have nod 32 did scan last night cleaned 17 threats.

    You could boil water on that video card. Better take it easy until you figure it out or you're going to fry your card, could already be damaged.

    Can you please fill out complete system specs lower left corner?

    Use Killdisk on the hard drive then install Windows.

    Also check that the fan on the card is operating well. Clean it and housing if necessary.

    Refrain from installing VirtualPC on new install.

    Install latest driver for your Microsoft mouse and/or keyboard from their hardware driver site.

    Keep this software off of the machine too:

    Do install the latest video card driver from
