    AMD Athlon XP +2800
    512mb RAM
    Nvidia GeForce FX 5700 56.72 drivers
    Onboard Realtek AC'97 Sound driver
    Soltek SL75PRN2-L with nForce 2 chipset
    CDrom Teac 540 E

    I can play some games without CD and they are stopping same.


    And I can't find where to enable DMA.

    Thanks for the help but Transfer Mode was "DMA IF AVAILABLE"
    It's something else I can't figure it out.
    I disabled my CD-ROM and the games are running perfectly.

    Is your system running a little hot? It sounds like it is being glitchy because the vid card could be getting too hot and wanting to lock up. At least it's something to look at.
