Operating System Version: XP home
Problem Application Name & Version:Call of Duty 1.4 (and other games)
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Intel Pentium 4 3.0Ghz 800Mhz FSB 512 Cache
Error Messages: None

Hi all, this is my first post.

Anyway i have been using an ATI 9600XT 256MB with absolutely zero problems for about 3 months now.I had been running a 2.4Ghz pentium 4 533 FSB, and 512MB of DDR 333mhz RAM. 2 days ago i upgraded to a 3.0 Ghz pentium 4 800Mhz FSB with hyper-threading.

Yes, the motherboard supports it, it's an intel D865PERL.

After upgrading to the new processor, i started up my favorite game Call of Duty. (a First person Shooter). I usually run it at 1280x1024 resolution, and it ran absolutely perfect with the 2.4 processor. But after upgrading, the entire computer freezes while at that resolution after about 5 minutes! So i reboot, put game into safe mode, works fine.I then proceeded to slowly raise the graphics settings. The computer doesn't crash as lnog as i keep the resolution below 1280x1024.

So does anyone have any ideas? Is the processor conflicting with the video card? How can i tell if the processor is defective? Is there any other possibilites that could be causing my problem?

After posting on other forums, ( i was told that my RAM was too slow for the processor and the multipliers were causing instability. I upgraded to a stick of Kingston Pc3200 (400Mhz) 512MB. The same problem happens!



Again my specs are as follows:
3.0Ghz Intel P4 (800 FSB) HT
Sapphire ATI 9600XT 256MB
Maxtor 120GB HDD (7200 RPM)
512MB DDR 333mhz (PC2700)
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2ZS
