  1. im not a computer buff, so when answering this please try use simple terms. i recently put in a dvd/ cd drive, and loaded the additional software that came with it. but since then when i play games like alias, sims2 and tomb raider after about 30min of play it freezes, not only the game but the computer too, ctrl, alt, del doesnt work only reseting the computer does. pls help!!!!

    your graphics card is probably a low end card and cannot keep up with the high end graphics of most games.
