  1. So I am having a problem with my computer games, after about a minute of playing the game freezes with sound. My current specs are as
    follows:

    Windows Xp
    AMD Athlon XP 2200
    768 MB of Ram
    DirectX 9.0b
    GeForce FX 5200 Ultra
    Temp running at about 44 degrees C


    I have also updated my windows, directx and also video drivers. and nothing seems to be working. Please reply if you have any ideas cause I am all out of them. :mad:

    Did this problem just start(Where you able to play before but not now)? Or is this a freshly assembled pc?

    I just started to get this problem. I never had a problem playing games before on this computer.

    Is there anything specific you can remember doing? Such as updating a certain driver? Changing a certain setting?
    Your problem may be with your video driver, install the one from from the cd you got with the card.
