  1. Power supply is my first guess. When you play a game, the videocard demands the most power than at any other time, not counting stress tests. So if the power supply is weak or failing, it will have issues when a game starts.

    Double check this by running a graphic stress test like Furmark and see if the same thing happens.

    Of course, you provided absolutely no details on your computer, so that makes it hard to help more.
  2. i have a dell optiplex 760 series desktop computer with 2gb ram and 3.0ghz.
