3d Graphics Errors After Hours Of Game Play


Errors happens on both cards, even with new drivers. When playing games it's fine at the start. But as time goes on it gets bad and gets worse. High-res images attached. Fx1.jpg

I'm thinking it's a temp issue, but speedfan 4. 15 is reading 35c, 38c, and 34c. This just started happening over the last month or so, no problem for the first 6 months it was running.

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/

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:
Core 2 duo 2. 66 ghz
2 gigs of ddr 2 pc800 ram
Intel mobo p35dp media series with p35/ich9r chipsets

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.

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

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.

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.

Computer Shut Off When While Playing Intense Graphics Game

Usually while playing an intense graphics game, my computer will make a click sound and just shut off to a black screen (monitor and computer lights still on but black screen). I usually get this problem about once a night. After reading for months now, over time i have replaced the graphics card to an nvidia geforce 6800 gs from an fx 5200. I also keep my computer case open with a housefan blowing inside (hahaha), so i am pretty sure there is no overheating problem like people suggest a lot, and today, i bought a whole new power supply, upgrading from a 250w to a 400w. I managed to go all evening with no crashes and i thought i fixed it, but just a minute ago, while having wow minimized and playing music, i got the same old click n' crash to a black screen. Basically everything has been replaced since i got this computer about 3 years ago aside from the hdd (120 gb) and processor (athlon xp 2600+) and the motherboard (which i don't know a lot about). If anyone has any ideas as to what's causing this, help please! I am posting this before i go to sleep, and i'll be back to check tomorrow.

Windows Takes 8 Hours To Install

My friend's amd athlon xp 1100+ on a k7s5a pro rev 5. 0 mobo is taking forever to install windows. I threw in an extra 256 ram to make it 512 ram. I bought a new hard drive and it is still taking forever to install windows xp. Should i just tell him to get a new mobo and proc? Or should i just replace the proc?

Specs For Computer To Use For Long Hours

What kind of specs must be needed for long hours use of computer?

Answer:- what will you be using the computer for? I don't think you need any special specs to use a computer for a long period of time, but again, it depends totally on what you will be doing. Will you be making and editing videos? You'll need higher specs for this. If you are going to be typing on a word processor, specs won't matter as much. It all depends on what you will be using it for, but i don't think you need super-charged specs to run your computer for a long time. You will need a cooling system, but the fan that your computer comes with should be fine. Unless you are going to be running a lot of processes at the same time, you shouldn't need a liquid cooling system.

External Usb Drive Is Taking 6+ Hours To Format

I just got a new fantom 500gb usb drive in today and started the ntfs format about 6 hours ago with vista disk management, disk management just gave me a percentage a minute ago of 33%. I did a long format, not a quick. Edit: it just now went from 33% to 34% so i'm canceling the format, this is pathetic. Edit2: i canceled the format and it's still going, up to 35% now, *** is going on. Edit3: i turned off the power to the drive, then did a quick format and that worked, but now i'm thinking maybe something is wrong with this drive since it took forever to do a full format.

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?

Memory Errors

Around a year ago i moved from my first computer ever (got it about 6 years ago), to my second, which was a major change since this one is built by me. I was ecstatic, and got a q6600, a gigabyte ga-p35-ds3, an 8800gt 512, an antec 900, 4gb ocz 800 ram, and a hiper 580w psu. Soon after buying these components, memory errors started showing up, so i returned the memory for some slightly different memory (nvidia sli ocz 800 4gb). This started to get errors also, so i returned that too, and got 4gb of ocz hpc reaper 800. Just recently, soon after moving into a cosmos 1000, every os that i am running (vista home premium and win 7 beta), has had the "host process for windows has closed", and the past couple of days, half life 2 and garrys mod have been crashing repeatedly, and randomly. Just yesterday x3:reunion crashed while i was playing, so i dropped dropped to windows, only to be greeted with "a plug and play device has terminated unexpectedly" (or something along those lines), and windows restarted. However, during the boot, it blue-screened with "memory management" as the cause. I have checked for viruses several times and have come up clean, and i have reinstalled windows cleanly. I was running a very stable overclock at 3. 00ghz with the memory at 800mhz/1. 8v (rated at 800mhz/2. 1v) and now i only have slight stability at standard (2. 4ghz/800mhz/1. 8v) and the memory is running much hotter than before (x3 crashed at standard clocks). So, after that long winded explanation, my question is this: what are the chances that it is my motherboard at fault? If so, which would be a good replacement?

No Bios Errors - Pc Turned Off

My problem is that i have installed everything in the case and turned it on, the cpu fan started up, spun for a bout 30 seconds, then turned off. It then started spinning again and carries on spinning, though nothing appears on the monitor and no bios beeps are heard. The only sign of life is the cpu fan. There is no os on it yet. Any ideas as to what might be causing it not to boot?

Bsod Tracking Down Errors

I've been getting regular bsod's while gaming lately, and their cause has been rather difficult to track down. I was hoping i could get some ideas on what else to try. I can't really reproduce them on demand, as it can happen anywhere between 30 minutes into gaming to several hours. The specific blue screen errors have to do with either "irql_not_less_or_equal" or "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal" and bluescreenview shows them being caused by any of hal.dll, watchdog.sys, or ndis.sys. It's pretty fair to rule out temperature, as all temps are very low. I've tried reducing gpu clock speed significantly (up to 30% reduction didn't help), increasing ram voltage from 1. 8 to 1. 9, . Simple gpu stress tests (like in steam games) don't trigger the bsod, running memtest for several hours reveals nothing, updated drivers and bios on all, voltages don't look out of whack. Basically i'm out of ideas, and looking for help. I feel like i've looked into the obvious stuff. Specs are:

Mobo: asus p5q (intel chipset)
Cpu: intel q6600
Gpu: bfg gtx260 oc maxcore 55
Ram: corsair xms2 ddr2 2x2gb @ 5-5-5-18 (stock)
Psu: seasonic m12 ss-600hm 600w

System Unstable, But No Errors

Ever since first reformatting and installing windows 7 (back on vista 64 now) my system has been acting seemingly unstable. Some of what's going on:

1) various applications will randomly cause system to black screen. Sometimes i get a "nvidia driver has recovered" message 5 seconds later, sometimes not, and system locks up. 2) artifacts, especially in wc3. Once in a few days in cod4. Oddly, they seem to show up when the card is least stressed. Sometimes i'll have to reboot 3-4 times to get the game to play 5mins without artifacts+locking up, sometimes it runs 5-6hrs no problem and never appears at all until i turn the system off & start it next day. Card stays at 40-45c at all times, doesn't even get hot with most games - cooled via ac accelero s1 + fan, so heat can't be the problem. 3) memtest: pass. Intelburntest: stable. Prime95: stable. Atitool: no artifacts. Absolutely no errors anywhere, everything tells me my system's 100% stable. 4) issue is a lot worse on nvidia 185s than 181s. I have no idea what's going on at this point. I just reinstalled nvidia drivers, hopefully that helps. If not, i'm going to reformat tomorrow.system is in sig. Anyone got any ideas?

8400gs Video Errors

Okay so a friend of mine shipped me this 8400gs for free! Since i am currently using on-board video i figure this has to be better. I plug it into my pci-e slot and use a dvi-m adapter ( what it says on package ) to knock the dvi down to vga for my 21" crt. I thought all was going well until i fired it up. The screen is nothing but random square colors. When the screen changes to load windows the image turns to fine lines, still nothing visible and not even close. Is the card screwed up or my pci-e slot or maybe the dvi-m adapter? Asus website says the 8400gs has dvi-i output, does it matter?
