    Hello everyone, I recently bought a macbook pro (my first mac), and am having some trouble. When I run games in windows xp bootcamp (Everquest 2 specifically) I play for about 5-10 minutes and then the fans start going crazy... which I figure is normal as the game must be quite intensive. The problem is after a few minutes of the fans kicking up the game just crashes and my system restarts. Now this has all the signs of a heat related issue but I have not heard of anyone else having this problem so was wondering if anyone could give me some advice.

    Thanks.

    I heard about RSS (Random shutdown) on MBP before(I actually had one on my MB), i think it was solved? you should call applecare for it.

    Ok so I'm still having problems. I cannot contact applecare about this as its a problem in WINDOWS and occurs when playing games only. I have tried underclocking my GPU which delays the time of crash but it is still happening and I'm at a loss with what to do.
