Why is computer locking up and why is no report being generated and sent in to microsoft? Im using windows 8 and plays BF3, Crysis 2 etc. Game is not lasting very long b4 freezup. I use windows defender. Also, Realtek HD Audio sometimes causes problems, I have it disabled so headphones work.
System is AMD Phenom II 3.2 GHz, AMD Radeon 7970 graphics and 16 GB ram. 64 bit windows 8. To be honest I have been running on Windows 8 for about 6 months and have had a few problems but they had seemed to be fewer of late.
Done as suggested swifty. Thanks for the quick reply. It still locked up after a few minutes.
I also note that I am using a Razer headphone set recently and computer does not recognize it until I unplug and replug back in.
it has to be a driver issue. what sound drivers show up under sound in the control panel/sound drop down menu?........... and when you plug in the headphones, do you make sure any other driver is disabled or that particular driver is enabled?
