All right. Let’s make this as easy as possible. My computer won’t play most 3D games. The only game that works so far is Land of the Dead; Road to Fiddler’s Green, however, sometimes it lags for a few moments. I have also experienced some skipping music in winamp whenever I’m typing, so at first I thought that it was a sound issue, but now I’m beginning to think otherwise. All other programs adobe premier, 3D studio max, windows, everything else functions normally, except games. Here’s my specs; --Asus Nvidia n-force A7N8X-X motherboard --AMD XP Athlon 3200 (thunderbird) 400MHz FSB @ 1.1 ghz --GeForce FX 5200 Graphics card @ 256 MB --2 Gigs of ram 1000mb of Kingston (DDR 3200 400Mhz FSB) and 1000mb of Corsair Value Select (DDR 3200 400Mhz FSB)- tried running the programs with each set @ 1gb of ram, did not fix the problem. --500 Gig Maxtor DiamondMax Hard-Drive Here is a list of the games I’ve tried to play and the problems that I’ve encountered; I have all of the settings on the lowest performance level, even though my system should be able to handle it. FEAR- Incredibly lagged. I can’t function or move in the game. Sometimes it only shows up as a messed up screen, the walls being invisible and all I can really see are a few lines and the gun. DOOM III- It’s slow and incredibly hard to function in the game, but I can play it with few problems other than it canceling out every once in a while. Half-Life 2- I can play fine for about 5 minutes (it seems to vary), and then I get a blue-screen of death allotting to something like; “STOP: 0X00000008E(0XC0000090, 0X004B4BD8, 0XEE25885C, 0X00000000) Beginning dump of physical memory. Physical memory dump complete.............contact system administrator, etc.,” Then I have to restart my system. So I thought maybe the games were too advanced for my system, even thought I should’ve been able to play. Then I installed 2 old games; Unreal- Lags, and closes after a General Protection Fault Error – With “History: bla bla bla……:: Tick<-MainLoop.” Looks like something in the engine. Blood 2: The chosen- Gives me a black screen and no visual. I cannot see the intro movies or anything. I can click on the game, but as soon as it starts I get a “Client MFC application” error. The problem could also be in BIOS, so here’s my BIOS settings…I’ve tried so many possible solutions I have no idea what’s right anymore. --Advanced settings; CPU level 1 cache = Enabled CPU level 2 cache = Enabled Gate 20 A option = fast Typematic Rate Setting = Disabled APIC Mode = Enabled OS/2 Onboard Memory >64MB Disabled --Chipset Settings; CPU Extreme Frequency MHz = 100 Mhz CPU Frequency Multiple Setting = Auto System Performance = Optimal CPU Interface = Optimal Memory Frequency = Auto Memory Timings = Optimal FSB Spread Spectrum = Disabled AGP Spread Spectrum = Disabled CPU V Core Setting = Disabled Graphics Aperture Size = 256 MB AGP Frequency = Auto System BIOS Cacheable = Disabled Video Ram Cacheable = Disabled DDR Reference Voltage = 2.6 volts AGP VDDQ Voltage = 1.5 volts AGP 8x Support = Enabled AGP Fast Write Capability = Enabled Any ideas at all?
