So i got a new chip a 3. 0 ghz and still cant play it i dont think is the videocard. The videocard has 256mbs is an fx 5600 the recomendedwas a geforce 4 or something that had 64 mb on the videocard so i made a new reinstallation i erase everything completely and i did a new instalation and when i play the game it freezes sometimes too much it occurs quite frequently. The machine has everything drivers update and everything windows updates everything i can play other games like call of duty medal honor perfectly and they need more than morrowind and i got the year edition becasue it had all the expansions bloodmoon has the latest patch and i still get problems. The recommended requirements for the game are:

800 mhz
256 of ram
64mb videocard

Computer specifications:

Motherboard: asus p4p800 normal one is not the deluxe
Chip: 3. 0 ghz northwood chip fsb of 800
Ram: 2 sticks of 256 is dual ram kingston i think
Audiocard:audigy2 zs

Unable To Play Max Payne Game - System Hangs

No accelerator card, although the graphics card is sis (inbuilt) and so is the sound card. I used to play max payne earlier and have completed both the parts, but, now whenever i try starting it or any other game for that matter, my systems hangs, it is not able to run any games. Actually, i had left my system in my flat for sometime and when i took it back, i discovered that the ram was broken and the socket was also a bit faulty, due to which (once i changed the ram), whenever i used boot. I would not get the post beep and when i would re-start my pc, then i would get it, (sometimes it used to happen that i would have to re-boot my system 2-3 times to hear the post beep!). Sometimes it also happens that, on switching on my system the post beep would come, but there would be no display on the screen. I know the game can run without a 3d acclelerator card.computer specifications:

Amd athlon 1700+
Mercury kob 740fx motherboard
120 gb samsung hdd (80+40)
Sony floppy drive

Pc Freezes When Play Ut2004 Game

I did a clean install of xp32, installed and updated all the drivers fine, avoided installing the swe ide driver for the nvidia chipset, and the comp is running smooth. Whenever the pc reaches 100% cpu usage, it takes a while to drop down, and the pc gets super laggy. The main problem happens when i try to play ut2004, w/ all the settings cranked up. The main menu loads fine, but after about 30 seconds, everything gets laggy. The mouse even lags like ***. If i don't exit out, the pc freezes. I remember when i first upgraded my comp to this setup, i played ut all the way cranked up just fine. Also hl2 all the way. I don't know what happened since then that caused this problem. I defragged my hdd, ran antivirus. I tried testing both sticks of my 512 ram, that's not the problem. I tried switching around the psu cables so there's nothing else attached to the wires that's attached to my gfx cables. I tried using forceware coolbits2 to make the 2d and 3d clockspeeds the same. The only thing i didn't try yet was changing my psu. My 400w antec is 20 pin, but my mobo takes 24 pin. But i plugged in the 4pin ez-plug on my mobo, which is what users of 20pin psu have to do.

Play Windows 95 Game On Vista

It there any way i can get my theme park game for windows 95 working on my laptop that is windows vista? I love this game, and want to play on it again but when i click on the file to start the game it says this system does not support full screen mode. Is there anything i can do?

Answer:- a lot of programs from 95/98 won't work, even with compatibility for the relevant os enabled. In those cases pretty much the only answer is to use a program called dosbox, dos box emulates a dos environment, its a free open source program. It's guaranteed to work for any game or program that will no longer work on nt based windows and above: http://www.Dosbox.com/

Freeze / Glitch When Playing Halo Game

I recently obtained halo for pc. From time to time a weird glitch would occur (usually when a grenade exploded or too many characters were on the screen at once); the action would freeze for several moments, and the sound heard at the moment the glitch occurred would repeat three to six times before the game resumed. I bought a new 512 ram chip hoping the issue would be resolved, but no such luck. I've played through the entire game now, simply dealing with this sporadic issue. I was told by a forum goer in the computer games forum that i needed a new video card to solve my problem. However, i am now uncertain this is the answer. I just popped in tes morrowind for the first time in a while, and now this game is suffering from the same issues halo did (it never had this issue before, for the months that i played it). The doom legacy is doing the same thing, which makes no sense. I am simply wondering if anyone can help me figure this out; did i do something wrong when installing the new ram chip?

Computer Shuts Down When I Play Online Game

I have a problem that i dont know the source. I am running windows xp pro, athlon xp 2400, 512mb ram, and plenty of space on harddrive. When i play this online game, (conqueronline.com. Au), my comp always shuts down in the middle of the game. However, if i do normal surfing or play single-player game, watch movies, on my comp, it's fine. Does anyone know what might be the problem? I am suspecting that my motherboard could be the source of the problem, but not sure!

Nwn / Driver Issues - Stuttery Game Play

I've been messing with this one for a while. Some times when i play neverwinter nights i get stuttering game play. As if my graphics card is running at 10 fps. Some times it's perfectly fine, as if there's no problems. This is the only game it does this in. Updated the driver once when the problem started happening with the last update of nwn to the newest whql from the nv web site. My gut instinct says it's the game's last update that did it. Any suggestions? The void may know more about this one.system specs:

Screen Keeps Flashing When Watch Movie Or Play Game

While trying to watch a movie or play a game at night my screen keeps flashing it seems to only happen when the aircon is on it is kinda hard to click on anything when the screen recovers as once i click on an icon its starts the flashing again the memory and other devices have been checked and fine but the last thing is the graphics card. I have a nvidia fx5200 128mb old i know and before i attempt to change it i would like to know if anyone else has come across the same issue in my past computer i had a nvida fx5500 that also given me problems but in a different manner. So again i am looking to hear if this has happen to anyone else and if they know of a fix because if it turns out to be the card that has had problems i have another 14 computers to sort out.

Total Loss Of Control - Computer Freezes When Play Game

I just recieved a new computer and it seems to do normal things like desktop work or internet browsing fine, but if i try to play a game, it locks up. I do not over clock anything. When it does this, there is a total loss of control, the sound goes into a loop, and the only thing i can do is a hard shutdown. It did this with everquest2 within the first 10 to 15 mins. I lowered all the graphics way down, and it then happened while zoning my character in. The computer came with age of empires 3, so i tried that. It lets me play for maybe 20 minutes and then would do it. Now, it will not even get past the intro movie. I installed the drivers for an amd dual core processor on a 32 bit windows system from amd and this did not help. I reduced the power management settings to the minimal settings per amd's website. I did all the windows updates it would give me, i upgraded dot net to 2. 0. I upgraded directx to the newest version 9c. I ran the dxdiag and it didnt show any issues. I ran a memory test using the windows program and it did 2 passes with no errors. The video cards were set for crossfire mode when i recieved it. I have tried to install the most recent radeon driver for xp multimedia edition with no luck. Right now i have set it back to the driver that came with the cards, which says it is 8. 24. I tried one of the omega drivers too, and it had no effect (was 6. 7 i believe). I tried updating the sound driver because the sound was looping during the freeze, and that didnt help so i installed an audigy gamer card and disabled the onboard sound. This gave me the same result so i uninstalled it. I called the tech support and he said it sounded like a video or hard drive issue and wanted me to try one card at a time, moving them to different pci-e slots and seeing if it would happen then. I tried each card alone in each slot and age of empires would go for about 20 mins and then freeze. (One of the pci-e slots looks slightly warped, but even if i dont have a video card in there, it still freezes, and i was also able to play agoe of empires for 20 mins with a card in that slot) i have tried playing with the side cover off and a fan going as well to see if it was heat related. The cards seem to hover in the 45-51 degrees.computer specifications:

Dual Monitor - Watch A Movie And Play Game At Same Time

I was wondering if there was any way for me to be able to play a full screen game like counterstrike source, and watch a movie with an s-video plug on my tv at the same time. I tried it and when the game loads on my main monitor while the movie is running on my tv, the movie re-adjusts itself and doesn't fit onto the tv correctly (a part of the video is cut off). Am i doing something wrong, or is it not even possible to do this?

System specs are:

Athlon xp 3200+
1gb pc 3200 ram
Radeon 9800 pro video card.

Video Card To Play Counter Strike Source Game

I have a 64mb radeon, and i'm thinking it is time to get a new one. I'm looking for one around a $100 or less. I like to play counter strike source and the fps is not to good with my current card. I'm also going to be getting pariah when it comes out. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Play Gears Of War Game On Asus Eah4350 Silent

Can you play gears of war game on a asus eah4350 silent/di/1gd2 pci-e graphics card - 1gb?

Answer:-
However the asus hd4350 isn't that powerful. Even with the healthy 1gb of ddr3 memory its 800mhz memory clock and 64bit memory interface wont allow it to run this game at anything higher than 1024x768. It will run at 1280x1024 however it wont be playable and 1024x768 is a fully playable resolution

What i tend to do with demanding games like gears of war is tweak the detail and resolution settings, best thing to do is lower the resolution to 1024x768 and all detail settings to minimum/low then run the first chapter and check how playable the game is at those settings. If they are fine then slowly higher the detail and run again. You have several options open to you for example run at low resolution and higher detail or higher the resolution and stay with lower detail also run the frame rate utility "fraps"( http://www.Fraps.com/ ) which will allow you to monitor the frame rate at each settings

Bare in mind 25fps is a smooth and playable frame rate so use this as a reference rate, however 20fps can also be playable, it depends on the game.

Pc System Freeze Shortly After Xp Log On

Whenever i turn on my pc after it has been off for some hours it freezes during the first 5 minutes. This usually happens shortly after log-on (on win xp and linux) but also if i wait for 5 minutes in the boot menu or the bios setup. After the freeze i can restart it and everything works fine, the system is stable for hours. In rare cases i get a second freeze but always only during the first few minutes. I have already made a bios update, checked the ram with memtest86, and bought a new psu. Now i am running out of ideas.computer specifications:

Best Video Game System For Money

I am in my late 40s and have not had a video game system since the atari ! So i want to ask the experienced video gamers out there, for someone like me, who does not want to spend a fortune, but wants a good system that will play the new games and not break on me in 3 months or overheat & turn into a matchstick (which i heard some do) - i am into mainly the action, shoot-em up type games, probably will get games like call of duty, things where i can shoot & blow lots of things up - i grew up (don't laugh i am old, i know) on the old original shooter games like wolfenstein, blake stone, doom, etc

So thats my type of game - also in addition to recommending the best game box for the money, can you recommend some really good video game cartridges that i could buy - things in that action, shoot-em, adventure, violence genre, like call of duty, similar to that type.

System Freeze Or Reset On Ecs Motherboard

I've been getting some weird errors with my computer. I'm thinking it may be my crappy ecs motherboard, but i may be wrong. 1. When i press the power button, the hard drive light comes on, but not the power light. It will not boot when this happens. It won't even post. I have to keep turning it on and off until the power light comes on, and then it will boot fine and into windows. I've unplugged and replugged all the connectors from the case to the board and even got new buttons for the power and reset. I also tried just shorting the two pins for the power using a paper clip. Nothing helps. 2. When it does boot, it has random crashes. It will lock in ie, usually after i click a link. It sometimes crashes just having winamp open listening to music. 3. It bsod's or freezes or resets when i try to play a video file, whether in windows media player or divx or in just a webpage. It works when it is in 800x600 and 256 colors, but only in a tiny window. Going full screen causes it to reset. After it resets, it goes back to the original problem of not posting, or it freezes on windows startup with the little blue bar scrolling across the bottom. 4. It fails every memory benchmark or utility regarding memory. It just freezes or resets, which is very frustrating. 5. I cannot run any games. They either freeze or reset the computer. I have totally disassembled this computer and cleaned every piece for dust or debris. This motherboard has slots for both ddr and sdram. When i put in sdram, it seems to run fine, except that i still have the boot up problems. Everything was running fine and all these problems started happening at the same time.computer specifications:

Ecs p4vxasd2 motherboard
P4 1. 6a
Pny gf4 ti4400
Audigy gamer
8g and 30g maxtor hdd's
Antec 300w psu

Nvidia Nforce 780i Pc System Freeze

I cant be sure its the mainboard or the vid card, so i will just post this here for now. I have the nvidia 780i xfx board, p4 3. 0 8400, 4gb ddr2 800 ram, winxp pro sp2, 2 xfx nvidia geforce 8800gt vid cards, and a gateway 24" monitor 16801050 . Since i got this board, i have run into an odd issue. While everything else works beautifully, the system freezes whenever i watch a movie file (avi, mpg, etc). It freezes at random regardless of the decoder in use or any background applications (if any). So far, it has only frozen when viewing movie files. When the system freezes, it typically just locks the audio in a loop and the screen stops as usual. However, sometimes it will preview the crash. The video playback will start showing many vertical lines like someone is running a blender in the other room and then the video freezes. Sometimes the audio will keep going but the video freezes until i hit the reset button. In some cases, when i see the vertical lines appear, i try to close the media player before it can crash. This does not work, but sometimes the video gets all crazy, the colors change, the resolution goes incredibly low, the refresh speed slows to a crawl like when a window leaves a trail on top of a non-responsive window. - I have the latest geforce drivers as well as the mainboard downloads. - I tried changing the video card from the e-geforce 8800gt to the xfx 8800gt. - I tried running one vid card, two, and two in sli mode, no change. - I tried changing the memory from patriot to corsair, same speed and capacity. - I tried using 2gb of ram, and changing between single and dual channel. - I made sure it wasnt a codec problem, it freezes for multiple codecs. It does not appear to be heat related, the nvidia monitor logs show the gpus never went above 142f and the cpu never went above 105f, i am running an inflow/outflow fan system while each hdd has a fan as well as the memory and cpu. The issue happens with every media player i have found. So far, it has not happened when watching dvds. - I can play unreal with no issues, the board and vid cards run great. - I ran memory testers and found no issues. - I have a 600w power supply and i already tried it with one vid card and as few accessories connected to it as possible, the system still froze. - I set the board back to its default values, but it did not help. I never changed any of the voltages or speeds to begin with. - I tried disabling all unecessary background applications including the av and firewall but it did not help. - I have run scans for malware but nothing was found. - I have reinstalled windows 3 times and the problem keeps coming back. I did notice the available ram was way down to 2. 75gb out of the actual 4gb, but that is the wonderful winxp ram issue that many ppl have to deal with. There is plenty of ram available when it crashes so i doubt this is the issue. I have checked with nvidia but they have 0 support. They expect their customers to buy their defective junk and wait patiently for a fix. I dont have that kind of time.

Video Card To Play Play Left 4 Dead

Hello there, i was wondering what is the best video card? Because i asked a question a while ago on how to play left 4 dead on a net-book. But the gay there said i need a powerful pc to play it. Ok. I have a video card problem. Because. I think it is weak because it cant even enable the 3d acceleration in plants vs zombies! I was wondering if it has something to do with my video card? Or something wasn't installed like direct-x? And i searched here how to know video card brand. But i followed all instructions and i didn't see one! Or maybe i didn't just notice it? I think it's intel because everything i see is intel. So here is what i wanted in my question:

What is the problem of my video card?

What is the best video card brand?

Can someone tell me all the video card products of intel? And which is the best of it?

Get Choppy Play Back When Play Dvd

I have a mini-itx based small form factor machine that i'd like to make into a multimedia box. The motherboard is ~1ghz with 1gb of ram. The machine can handle audio, and video files without a problem. Whenever i try to play hulu or dvds however i get choppy playback. (Youtube, even on hd, is fine however). If i get a decent pci video card (only 1 pci slot on the board), would that clear up the chop when i'm trying to play?

I installed the card in the pci slot and the drivers but as i hooked up my pen drive the pc freezed. I rebooted , all is fine until i hook up another usb device this time my blue tooth dongle.

Pc Will Work For A Little While Then It Freeze

Trying to fix and old pc with about 512mb of ram. I removed all pci cards and the only card in use is an agp 8mb vga. Windows xp home edition. Pc will work for a little while and then it will freeze. Sometimes it freezes @ the welcome screen, or the video signal goes missing, other times, it will make a horrible noise (kind of like a modem dialing) and then it freezes or loses video signal. I installed xp pro to a different partition and different hd and the same problem occurs. Replaced psu, hd, ram, vga, and removed all pci cards, floppy, cd-roms. Cleaned cpu and re-applyed cpu thermal paste.cooler runs "cool" to the touch, same thing. Weird thing is that the computer will allow me to install windows, which takes @ least 1 hour in this system, but it will crash when trying to run for the first time, @ the welcome screen, or a bit later after loading. With the old installation (hd), i cannot even make it to the welcome screen anymore. It just dies there and reboots again!

I have also checked event viewer for errors.

Game Freezes

I had a virus and had to reinstall windows. Everything is wroking fine now except any 3d game i play. Sometimes i can join a game and play for 2 minutes or so, and others i can't even pick a team yet and the game freezes and makes the sound loop and my moniter status light goes from green to orange. I have windows updated, directx 9. 0c, and the latest ati graphic drivers. Is the card over heating? It doesn't feel hot and never has before. Is my offbrand cheap aspire x-alien generic psu crapping out on me? Should i try older versions of dx or gfx drivers?
