Hey all, i need some help. I have a fresh install of windows xp. It seems every time i play any game like Counter Strike Source or Battlefield 2 or others. After about 2-15 minutes playing (randomly) my game will most of time time freeze (lockup) usually with a looped noise. Or it will crash to desktop. I've tried everything i can think of so far. I've tried old and new video drivers, i've tried older and newer sound card drivers.i tried swapping out my sound card and using on board sound. I bought new more expensive Corsair memory. Updated DirectX. I don't know what else to do.
Please if you can help tell me what else i can do?
Your motherboard uses an Nvidia chipset doesn't it. Reduce your Northbridge voltage.
I was having exact same problems with my striker extreme then I noticed my NB voltage was higher than peoples I was reading on the forums so I reduced the voltage and now no more freezing or crashing to desktop with looped noise.
