Games Freezing - Driver Problem

By John Mather
Feb 9, 2006
  1. All the games i am playing are freezing (Battlefront 2, Wolfenstein, Tiger woods 06)

    I have to restart the PC because i can't do anything. I get teh system has recovered from a serious error so i send error report. It says Its a device driver Problem.

    I have updated the drivers multiple times to no avail.

    I am running a geforce sparkle 6200 AGP

    and ideas?

    Have you consider to upgrade your DirectX 9.0C and latest nFORCEWARE later than v77.77? You should not let your Windows XP Use it default driver because it never support the OpenGL...

    You have to uninstall the forceware...

    just run setup for DirectX 9.0C...

    If nothing happen, probably come from your puny motherboard :)
