  1. Hi i have Rock Quaddra XT pro computer, the specs are intel cpu 3.06ghz- 1gb Ram, 128 mb ATI mobilty radeon 9700 series, it seems to be fine if i use it to surf the internet and play 2d games, however it does seem to crash when i try and play 3d games such as warcraft, it does also get hot but i can hear a very noisy fan kicking in, anyway i am about to lob it out the window so any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Make sure ALL your mobo and gfx drivers are up to date!!!!

    If you believe its a temperature problem then try adding additional cooling if you have the room or try running it with the side panel off!!!!
