Monitor Doesn't Adjust To Scale When Play Games

When i play games, my monitor doesn't adjust to scale there are certain games that while i play, do not resize and adjust to my crt monitor. This was never a problem until i installed my new ati radeon 9800 all in wonder. Before i used an ati radeon 7000 and most of my games, such as diablo 2 and starcraft would resize accordingly. Now, there are tons of games that i want to play that for some reason, wouldn't readjust to my monitor. Text would sometimes be stretched out or squashed or that the screen would stretch out completely to the point i cannot see the icons on the side. At the moment, the only games that i've tried so far that adjust to my monitor/resize is warcraft 3, diablo 2 and unreal tournament. I'm having problems with starcraft. The image tends to look squashed.

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!

Pc Shuts Down When Playing Games

Recently upgraded my graphics card to an ati radeon 9200 se from a chaintech geforce 4 mx440. Uninstalled the nvidia drivers and fitted the new card downloaded latest whql drivers for the new card. All went well until i played games where they would run for a couple of minutes, then my pc would shut down as if there had been a power cut. Pc would only come back on after unplugging then plugging back in. Ran this prob thru other pc related forums which provided suggestions like defective graphics card, infinite loop problem between some graphics cards & cpus, too much dust, winxp sp2 bug the list goes on. Up to now i have done the following:

Changed the 9200 for same model to rule out defective card
Installed another hi power psu
Changed the mobo
Cleaned out the pc case thoroughly
Virus checked my hd
Installed latest bios and chipset drivers
Emailed amd for any incompatibility issues with ati cards none what so ever.computer specifications:

Msi kt6v-7021 mobo
Amd athlon xp 2500+
40gb hdd
768mb ddr pc2700
Ati radeon 9200 se 128mb
Qtec 550w psu
Winxp with sp2 installed

Pc Restarts Instantly When Play Games

When i play games like quake 4 sometimes my pc restarts, just instantly. No warnings or any type of 'blue screen of death', just restarts, literally instantly when i least expect it. Now i've checked my 3500+ and the temps are fine at about 39c idle and my 7600 gt at about 51c idle. The much i can say is my antec 420 watt power supply was making really worrying noises lately and stinks of radiation. Sometimes i hear little sparks. My ram the crucial ballistix dd400 at 2-2-2-5 and i hav'nt really tested them yet for temps. My pc has been running just fine for months until my games started to bust up like this. The motherbard im using is the a8n-e rev2. The crappy power supply is the antec 420 watt. I cant even find its real name on the net so it must be cheap. It orginally came with a case. But if needs be i'm more than happy to buy an enermax liberty 500watt.

Computer Goes Down To 4 Bit Colour When Play Games

My modem can only connect once. If it is disconnected or the computer has been on for a while, the moden gets an error 50: request not supported. Unless i constaintly have music playing while i dial up to the internet, the sound will not work while i am on the internet, but sometimes works after i disconnect. Occasionally when i play games with high graphics, the computer goes down to 4 bit colour and has a "serious error". I would prefer not to have to re-install.

Pci Video Card To Play Flash Games

What's the best pci video card to play flash games?

My girlfriend plays farmville, farmtown, and various other flash games. Running a dell with older 478 mb with 2. 4ghz p4. Thing is pegged at 100% usage and chokes. Thinking the best idea is to stick in a card that flash can be offloaded to. Looks like the 8400 gs has some anomalies and the 9400 is a little high. Any input is appreciated.

Screen Flicker / Strobe When Try To Play Games In Sli

I recently got a second gtx280 gpu. I now run it in sli with my other card. Thing is when i go to play battlefield 2142 i get a flickering or strobing of color. When i disable sli it goes away. I also had this problem with battlefield bad company 2 beta. I am wondering if anyone knows why this is. Is it perhaps that one card is an evga ssc and the other is a stock leadtech? I have the current driver. Not the one that nvidia messed up but the one right before it.

Setting Up A Two Computer Lan To Play Multiplayer Games

I want to connect two computers to each other so i can play multilayer games with friends, without worrying about pk'ers, crackers, and idiots. I went to best buy and got a cat6 cable, thinking all i needed to do is plug the two computers together and start playing. I was wrong. I went back to best buy and then they told me that i needed a "crossover cable" because the kind of cord i got needed a hub and another cable. So i traded my cable for a crossover one. I then came home with the notion that all i needed was to plug the two computers together and to know each other's ips to play. Again, i was wrong. After struggling for hours on end in the network connections and calling around for people who might know, we (me and my friend) wasted the whole weekend when we could've been death matching in a halo, half-life 2, and postal 2 binge of all binges. I come to you for a very simple, very short step-by-step instruction in the connecting two computers with one crossover cable. I'm talking so short that i could print the entire thing on one piece of paper. Thrice.

Mouse And Keyboard Cut Out At Random Times When Play Games

This just started recently, but when i play warcraft 3 on my computer, my mouse and keyboard cut out at random times for 2-3 seconds and my master volume turns up and down randomly as well. It's really *bleep*ing annoying and i really wish i could find some way to fix it without having to reinstall the game (can't find my cd keys). I've already updated my drivers, restarted multiple times, turned the computer off and walked away for a couple days and nothing.

Monitor Shuts Off Problems

For the past few days i've been dealing with a very weird problem with my monitor. Every time i shut the monitor off, the computer goes to stand-by or i try to run a game, the monitor shuts off and i can't turn it back on. To do so, i have to unplug the monitor, wait a few seconds, and then plug it again. I'm guessing this has something to do with either my graphics card (it's probably having problems with sending info to the monitor) or catalyst control center, witch i installed no too long ago. The monitor is fairly new and, when not shutting off unexpectedly :p, it seems to be working great. And one more thing. The other day the monitor stopped responding and i got a message error from catalyst control center saying something about vpu recovery and i had to restart the pc. Ive tried to downgrade my drivers and upgrade them again but that didn't help. This is the first time something like this has ever happened to me so i was hoping that you could tell me what the problem is. Here are my pc specs:

Intel(r)
Pentium(r) d cpu 3. 2ghz
1. 00 gb of ram
Os: windows xp professional v. 2002 (with service pack 2)

Display:
Ati radeon 9550 / x1050 series

Monitor Black Out When Start To Play Game

Why does my hp 19" w1907 widescreen lcd monitor blacks out whenever i start to play a pc game? -Any pc game for that matter (from red alert to first person shooting game to nba2k10). And whenever it gets in that situation, i turn the monitor on and off repeatedly until it runs normally again. I'm not sure if this is because of a virus because i've got a microsoft security essentials as my anti-virus. Please help me fix this problem.

Connect Xbox 360 To Play On Laptop Monitor

Can i connect my xbox 360 so i can play on my laptop monitor? I have an hp dv5t laptop its about 2 years old. I would like to try to play xbox on it because it is bigger and probably better quality than my tv. Is this possible? It said i just have a generic pnp monitor but i don't know if it is still hd or what. So can i connect and would the quality and lag on my computer make it impossible to play? Because i don't want to spend money on cables or whatever just to find out it doesn't work.

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.

Games Crash And Monitor Blacks Out

I've been trying to play world of warcraft, but whenever i do start playing, it runs excellent for a few minutes then the monitor blacks out, and the power indicator starts blinking. The pc is on, but i can't see/do anything so i have to manually restart the pc. I've had the same issues with playing halo on my pc. I have tried running both of the games in safe mode, i've run them on the lowest detail settings possible, i've run them using tv-out to see if it was my monitor but the same thing would happen. I've installed the latest drivers for the geforce gpu, downloaded straight from nvidia's website. I uninstalled them, then reinstalled them. I've tried turning off all "start-up" programs, restarted the pc then run the game to see if any of those programs were conflicting with the game. Nothing. I have an agp geforce 6200 (non turbo cache), windows xp home edition, 1gb of ram, amd athlon 2. 20 ghz, and a 17" hp pavilion flat panel monitor.

4870x2 And 1080p Monitor - Games Issue

So i've been having this problem for a while now in a few games, notably far cry 2 and world in conflict. I'll start the game, and i get a ton of interlacing and the game looks like garbage.going into the in-game settings and trying to force it to 60hz refresh rate does nothing; it still displays in 1080i. With fc2 i used to be able to fix it by restarting the game and re-applying 60hz settings, but world in conflict won't cooperate at all. Spore used to give me issues, but at least that game told me exactly what was going on; sometimes it would default to 1920x1080@30hz and simply setting it to 1920x1080@60hz would fix the issue every time. Mercenaries 2 and fallout 3 had one or two small occurrences of this issue, but it was as easily fixed as it was in spore and happened far less often. This happens both with an without vsync. I'm pretty much out of ideas on how to fix this. I have everything set properly in ccc, and the in-game settings usually give me the same garbage; it'll say the refresh rate is set to 60hz but it'll really be 30 or whatever number feels like. Has anyone had this problem and managed to figure it out?

The computer and monitor in question are in my signature. I'm currently using a dvi cable to connect the pc and monitor, and this has happened since more or less day 1 with the 4870x2 (bought it as soon as it launched) using more or less every driver iteration released since then (currently using 9. 2). Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

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?

Pc Freezes Or Shuts Down

The initial problem was that the computer freezes like it would when the cpu shuts down. I have had this problem for ages. However, it happens so rarely that it really didn't bother me. Nowadays the problem occurs extremely frequently. 20+ times a day. Another thing that started happening at the same time those freezes started getting more frequent, is the system shutting down whenever it wants. Rather violently. These two last problems happen anytime.could be while i let my computer idling or could be while im playing a game. Can even happen anytime during boot up, which is frustrating as sometimes i start my computer 5 times in a row before i can use it.

Windows only sees and uses a single cpu. Can't set processor affinity. And single thread programs use the whole cpu. I don't have that problem under linux. Strangely enough it seems its not hyper-threaded? I thought my cpu was. At first i blamed overheating. But the computer freezes with the cpu at about 50 degrees. Tried reseting the bios to factory default. It didn't help. (That just made windows complain). So now i'm thinking a hardware component might be dying. I'm thinking either the cpu or mother board. I'm rather unsure as to what to do next to try to find the source of this problem?

Computer specifications:

Cpu: amd athlon 64 x2 4400+
Mobo: msi k9n platinum
Ram: 2x 1024mb corsair
Gpu: nvidia geforce 8800 gts
Psu: assus 550w

Computer Just Shuts Off

A couple hours ago, i tap the front of the case with my foot, and everything just shuts off. I tried turning it back on and nothing happened. So i turned the power supply off and back on and tried again. This time, it tried to start and then immediately shutoff again. The power supply has a blue light in it and that goes out immediately as well. I can see 2 yellow lights on the motherboard are lit when the power supply is turned on. Do you think my power supply blew or is it something else? Any way i can test?
