When i play EVE my PC will just shut down completely abruptly and it takes 3-4 attemps to re-activate it.This has happened 3 times during the last 3 days.I have recently had someone to carry out a Format on my PC,but the issue occured even before the format,and it disturbed me as well then.I don't run any other applications while playing EVE and i don't even have any other demanding programs,at least currently, so i don't stress my memory AT ALL.Why does this happen?I would appreciate help,because abrupt shut-downs can mess up the situation.I also have a fan beneath to cool down my PC and prevent overheating.I guess it works.

Technical Aspects:
VERSION: Windows 7 Ultimate (Manufacturer:Hewlett-Packard)
Processor:Pentium (R) Dual Core-CPU (T4300 @ 2.10 GHz)
Operational System:64-Bit

Also,as a secondary issue,EVE is running slowly for me when i PVE,and the only way to somehow combat this is cripple the graphics.Is that because my PC is not capable?What can i do about it?

i would check the comp T°, ensure it's not dust filled, check all fan are running smooth etc.... it's summer, T° are a bit higher, and your comp might simply cross a safety threshold on CPU or GPU, hence the auto shutdown and why you need to wait a bit before restarting.

it also could be a defective RAM issue, if several unit, try them one by one, if the issue stops and happen again after replacing back a specific RAM module, check this module further with memtest
