I need help! Every game i play eventually stops responding or just closes for no reason on my new computer. Crysis minmises and i get a message say it stopped responding, same with mafia 2 and Cod 4/5. And in combat arms it just closes without any message at all. I was thinking it was my cpu overheating but know idk. It doesn't get above 60c while playing.
I have a Phenom 2 955be and the fan is really noisy, like 3000rpm on idle, 6000rpm on while gaming. What could be causing this? All drivers are up to date.

First let me know what graphics card ,amount of ram....
sometimes game compatibility is prob....yr cpu is certainly powerfull enough for those games but what about gfx and ram....they can be the bottleneck....try some patches....i had similar prob with sof3 on win7 and vista..applied patch and no prob.....check yr gfx card tem...if it's above 90s there's the prob...ok

Well, do you have the latest graphics drivers ?
Is it a fresh install of windows, if not, were the previous graphics drivers removed, registry cleaned, prior to reinstalling ?

Well, i think it concerns ram then. try with each stick of ram at a time. It might be the culprit.

ok, it seams when i run the game in safe mode i get a bsod and when in normal it stop responding.
i got a 'driver_irql_not_less_or_equal' while playing on safe mode, so is it alright to assume i should reinstall all the drivers?

Sounds like you have RAM issues, try running MEM test and see if that helps
