  1. I don't know if you can help. I am having problems playing games since installing directx9. I have a Nvidia Geforce MX420 and Avance AC'97 AUDIO Via (R) Audio controller. I downloaded and installed the latest drivers and all the test from Directx came positive. However, my games keep freezing or swith the computer on and off constantly. Has anyone got any ideas?

    I am sending my computer specification. Like many others, my problems started when I installed Sims2 and other games needing directx9.0c. I have downloaded and installed all the drivers updates but to no avail. My computer still freezes or crashes. Please please help.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your problems may be caused by faulty ram/underpowered psu/overheating etc, or perhaps you have a driver/software problem.

    Go and read this thread HERE.

    If that doesn`t help. Zip 5 or 6 of your latest minidump together and attach them here.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
