Operating System Version: win xp pro sp2a
Problem Application Name & Version: Wolfenstein ET: 1.02 Uru 1.2
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Custom built:
Amd athlon 3000+
ati radeon pro 9600 256mb mem
512 2700 ddr ram
soyo kt400 ultra black edition mboard
400 watt powersupply
2x80mm case fans, 1x90mm case fan

Ok, I recently put togethor this computer and it's been problematic.  Windows runs perfectly, but whenever I run Uru, the graphics get really glitchy and it crashes.  Wolfenstein just crashes a few minutes after joining a server saying there was a problem with et.exe.  I dont have the exact error messages as this has been awhile ago (using my laptop right now) but I can go see what they were if needed.

The thing is, a friend of mine bought a carbon copy of my pc, and his runs fine.

I've replaced the harddrive, I've updated all my drivers from bios to mboard to video card and sound.  I've tried reinstalling and redownloading the games and I've ran registry mechanic, adaware pro, and mcafee system scan and found no problems there.  My cpu sometimes goes up to 63 degrees C, which bothers me somewhat (can too much thermal paste cause a problem?) My cpu fan is a
I've run microsoft memory test and my ram is ok and a pcpitstop says there's nothing wrong with my pc.

The main issues I can possible think of is that my video card is faulty, I haven't exchanged it out with my friend's yet to test it.  The other thing is overheating, but that causes system lockups, not game crashes right?  Next I suspect winxp SP2 since it caused problems with my laptop too, then I suspect the obvious mboard and cpu.  However, all this is new...what is wrong?

Thank you

Try to find the error messages for me in the Event Viewer. Copy & paste them here.

As for SP2, it does have some problems on some systems. In your case, especially asking my girlfriend who was an avid Uru player, I think it's a DiretcX problem. If you go Start->run->type in dxdiag {hit enter}, are all drivers correctly installed for your system? Is hardware acceleration available on your videocard? (Do the tests).

You could try uninstalling your ATI drivers & control panel, then reinstalling the latest Catalysts from
