  1. Im trying to play Days of Defeat or Counter strike. Everytime i load the game, i can only stay in for like 2-5 min then my compu crash for no reason , screen go black and i need to reboot. If i check in my settings it say
    irq conflict with vid card + soundcard.

    I have a amd athlon xp +1600 and a gf3 ti200 as videocard.
    Soundblaster live 5.1 as soundcard.

    Do you guys have any idea how i can fix that problem?
    Help would be appreciated.

    I did try to change my soundcard of slot and it didnt work , it keep saying COMP LOCK UP error.

    Does it do this during any other games, or just Half-life? Obviously Half-life being the modded game for these ones ;)

    if it's only doing it in Half life, check your video mode in Half life to make sure you're using OpenGL, it defaults to software or hardware acceleration, and that's no fun for anyone.

    DOD is bad ***, look for me - Strakian-K98, ,I'll get ya good ;)
