Hi there,

I wonder if anyone could help me with my problem. Recently When I have started playing games on my computer, between 10 and 20 minutes later, the computer freezes, much to my annoyance I have to press the reset button afterwards. On any other type of program on my computer, things are fine. But only when I start playing any games on my computer, it then freezes. I have Windows XP Pro,Geforce 4 MX420 Graphics Card,40GB HDD, 256Mb. Any help on this matter would be most appreciated.

Thanks:(

Upgrade your USB drivers to latest
Upgrade your display drivers to the ones made for the card
Check your internals of your box for dust.
check for dust blocking the heatsink on your cpu
check that your cpu has a good contact to heat sink as it may be overheating = hang/crash
replace the cpu thermal grease (white stuff) for more of it.
disable your anti-virus proggy before playing. (usually the cause)
Go to AnalogX.com and download MAXMEM.EXE to monitor and defrag your precious ram continuosly (freeware)
Go to AnalogX.com and download CACHEBOOSTER.EXE to EXPAND your precious little CACHE settings
Go to SIMMTESTER.COMD DOWNLOAD THEIR DOS testing program and let it run on your RAM over night as it might show that you have a heating up problem with mothers memory or your ram, it will tell without the blurb.
