  1. Hi all, I have a problem while playing C & C 3 Tiberium Wars, I'll be playing the game for about 6 minutes and than the screen turns off but the game is still running, I can't seem to find what could be causing this problem.

    My System:

    Operating System: Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2
    BIOS: Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
    Memory: 4000MB of DDR2 RAM
    DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c
    Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
    Display Memory: 512 MB

    If there is any other info that you need please let me know.

    I will really appreciate any help that anyone can give.

    Thank you,

    Hi Poteljito, I have a Gigabyte Motherboard and about the Monitor when it turns off I meant to say it goes into standby, I feel that it doesn't have anything to do with the Monitor though I think it's something else but I'm not sure what. The Monitor that I have is a Samsung 24inch with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1200.

    Do you have to restart your PC then? Does the sound repeat?

    Hi Poteljito, Yes, I have to restart my PC after it crashes and the sound, does repeat.
    I did a bit of looking around and found that it isn't a fault with my PC but a fault with the game, so I'm not going to do anything about that game since all my other games run without a problem, the best place for C & C 3 is in the trash or until EA Games comes up with a solution.
    Oh and if your wondering I also had the 1.9 patch installed to see if that made any difference which it didn't.

    Thank You.
