Hi ppl, I'm having a bit of a problem here so if anyone can help me at all please feel free to post a msg.
Problem is that a few games are crashing/freezing after I'm playing it for a few minuts (random time). Like EA Cricket 2004. My monitor just goes black but I can still hear what is going on in the game. On other times the monitor goes black and the sound gets all weird and static. Thus I have to restart the pc. This is now really getting to me, so if you got any advice at all please let me know. Here's my pc specs. Thanks Snowy

Is your OS winXP or 98,when does the game be published?i've met the same issue as yours,but most games with this kind of issue are published before year 2000,take Biohazard3--the last escape for example(my OS is WINXP),when the game starts,it's very slow just like there's no 3D card,and another example,momery off(i dont kown wether you've ever heard),it's a 2D game,usually it has no responce after it is started about 30 minutes,and i am nearly go mad about it,but without any method to solve the problem,that's winXP,so what can you do?
so i think your problem is refer to the OS.GAMES ALWAYS 98,NOT XP!
