  1. I always play the SuddenAttackSEA which usually works fine to me all the years. But recently I played this game, my monitor suddenly blackout and my speakers no sound at all but the CPU light is still working fine. But it wont boot, till I hold the power on button on the CPU to off it and on it back. My CPU was not hot at all. But the problem persist. BUT WHEN I WAS SURFING INTERNET OR DOING OTHER STUFF NON RELATED TO HARDCORE GAMES IT WOULDN'T BE LIKE THIS. Can anyone tell me what is the problem caused?

    I've heard few of these problems would probably caused

    - PSU problem
    - Video Card problem
    - Virus infection
    - Not enough power/current from the main switch to support my components

    My computer information
    -WIN XP/VISTA (DUAL BOOT)
    -HP PAVILION G3100 (motherboard 945GCT-HM [Livermore8])
    -Processor Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU E2140 @ 1.60GHz (2CPUs)
    -DirectX version 9.0c (4.09.000.0904)
    -RAM 1GB
    -Integrated graphic using Intel GMA 950
    -Integrated Realtek ALC888 Audio

    Hi Darius. We want you to do a simple no cost diagnostic step by doing the following:

    1. Remove your case side panel.

    2. Find a small fan and have it blow into system.

    3. Now play your game.


    * What are the results?

    Thanks for your reply. Anyway, my computer doesn't seems to be hot. I touched everywhere, it's still cool. And i'd rest my system for a day and on it back to play games but it still happened to be the same way. It seems like doesn't matter to the affection of heat towards my system.. Anyway, I will try your steps.
    Thank you!
