  1. This may not be related to games , but whenever i play WC3 or SWG or desert combat mod for bf1942 or any other game for that matter , my game freezes but it doesnt freeze forever , after about 30 seconds of freezing my computer recovers and i can play the game normaly again , and it keeps doing it .

    I have a p4 2.0ghz 500 mb ram , gf 4 ti 4600 windows xp . I havent updated by windows yet so im gonna try that . Please help:(

    Try update your vga driver, and close any background apps before running your games. Hope help!

    Check your virtual memory settings. Is the hard drive running when the game freezes?

    Do you have auto update on, or auto update on your virus protection? They will eat up memory. XP eats alot as well so your 500 is prob closer to 250-300 with only the os running. If you get free mem that may help as well.

    Try playing with the side of your case off..maybe your ti4600 is overheating?
