Crysis level paradise lost shutsdown pc
 
In start of the paradise lost level my pc just shutdowns. (power led blinks like it is somekind of powersaving state).
All other games are working just fine including crysis to the paradise lost point.
There is no matter is the computer cold or warm or case open it will crash in paradise lost level.
The MB of the pc is msi k9n sli. This motherboard have capasitor problem (one capasitor is too small causing problems like unable to burn cd&dvd in udma66 burner i have tested this and i cannot burn anything in my udma66 burner but can with udma33 burner.)
Can this same component be culprit to this crysis problem (psu detecting something in voltage rays and shuttingdown as safety).

Any ideas??

What does your 'Event viewer' say. Anything in the log?

CPU overheating. Check temps.
I had this exact problem before. Two push pins of the HSF was detached from the mobo causing a shutdown and blinking power led.

How it can be cpu overheating i can play crysis from start to paradise lost nonstop then it crashes. And that is lots of hours.

Yes fault was found it was motherboard.
I bought today Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe board and played crysis to end (and pulled my hair in my head cursing that last boss).

Here are some faults that are caused by wrong capacitor

Unable to use udma66 dvd-writer (pc shutsdown when burning dvd&cd). (udma33 works well no hiccups).

Unable to install x-fi soundcard in win xp (middle of driver installation pc shutsdown and doesn't start until you go safe mode remove drivers).
(however in vista drivers install fine and card works).

Crysis pc shutsdown in beginning of paradise lost level (no matter is pc run hours or just minutes it will shutdown in exact same spot).

And all this is fixed by new motherboard (same chipset nforce 570 sli)

Im happy camper now:)
