I used to play BeGone, web based game available on Google web store, on my computer which was equipped with i5 second generation processor and a Zotac 1gb RAM graphic card.

I started seeing BSOD and as a result the motherboard had to be replaced.

Our IT admin has to say that the game BeGone overclocked the CPU.

As far as I know, one has to go into BIOS setup to overclock the CPU or some motherboards have jumper settings for overclocking.

How true is it that a game (web based BeGone) can overclock the CPU without my consent or knowledge?

A response with some technical understanding will be highly appreciated.

I think you IT admin is trying to hide the fact they are providing mediocre systems and they do not want you to play games on them...

I agree with evasive. When "on the clock" at work, only business-related use of computers is acceptable. Or allowed.
As to a game or program over clocking a system, very unlikely. More likely the system overheated from stress.
Or the persistent "bad caps" syndrome caused the failure.
Check out www.badcaps.net/ for instances and what to look for.
Still or less detailed images should not strain a system. But for intense graphics work or intense gaming, the system needs to be more robust and intended for that use.

I think that U roasted the MOBO, most of office computers are not well suited for intense gaming from a cooling point of view (cheaper) so are prone to overheating and Kaput!
