  1. Hi guys. Im not sure what to do here. Im using Q9450 cpu, evga 9800gx2 gpu and asus striker ii 790i mobo.



    Recently ive been trying to encode video using Convertxtodvd but it always crashed after about 5 mins. I switched to TMPG dvd author and all was fine i could encode my video.



    Today i installed Crysis on my pc. It froze after about 10 mins of playing it. Restarted the comp and loaded it up again for it to crash after about 20 mins of playing.



    Im not really sure what to do. Not sure if its my hardware or software. Im using vista 32bit but i tried installing windows xp pro and the same freezes occured. I would be grateful for any help! thnx!

    Open up the case and try playing the game. if the system freezes, try replacing or upgrading the power supply
