Hi, Every time I try to run a game with high (3D) graphics, the game runs very slowly and sometimes the pictures do not fully appear. Eventually the game freezes and a bleep noise indicated that the computer has frozen. I have installed DirectX 9.0c and I have an up-to-date, modern computer with good specs. I have a 128MB video card - NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti 4400! Some of my games include: The Sims 2, Max Payne and Mafia. Can anyone suggest something to get these games working. Thanks for your time and help! P.S. Most high graphics internet games also create the same problem, as do a few screensavers.
