  1. Hey,

    When i play games on my computer it works just fine with the highest settings possible, for like 10 seconds and then i starts to freeze and unfreeze.
    If i play 10 seconds it freezes for 5 seconds, then is unfreezes and then freezes again. What is wrong?? I have updated my drivers and im using MSI Live Update everytime theres a new update.. :eek:

    Oh, and i have tried lower resolution and settings, so that is not the problem.

    Go HERE and then enter your full system specs in your user profile at the top of any page (click on edit profile)

    Download and run Memtest86+ from www.memtest.org let it run for at least 7 passes. If you don`t have a floppy drive, there is an iso version that you can burn to cd, and then boot from that.

    Also what psu do you have?

    Regards Howard :) :)

    Without knowing what PSU you have and the results of Memtest there`s not a lot I can do.

    Can you get a friend to burn the iso version of Memtest for you?

    Regards Howard :confused:
