PC only plays 3d games once Tags: PC gaming Games Boot 3D Video Games Last response: October 22, 2009 7:34 AM in Video Games Share mwebber October 18, 2009 5:02:02 AM Recently my PC started crashing the second time I try to play a game. Meaning, on a clean boot I can play indefinitely until I exit the game and when I run it again, the PC either freezes or the game just crashes returning errors I can't track down More about : plays games | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove mwebber October 22, 2009 4:13:23 AM After more testing, it gets very flaky after being up a while. It doesn't shut down if it's up for too long or after heavy use, internet browsers start crashing... Any ideas at all? I'm guessing it's time to re-install windows, but I really hope there's some other fix. | Report abuse Herr_Koos October 22, 2009 7:34:06 AM Post some system specs, please. It sounds to me like you may be running low on RAM, which will cause the system to start swap-filing after a while and will bring the whole thing to a grinding halt. Either that, or you have a bloated Windows, as you mentioned, or possibly malware problems. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Video Games>PC only plays 3d games once> Related ressources: ForumVisual interference when playing 3d games ...
