  1. What game are you playing? Is it a game that's installed on your computer or a game through the internet?

    Does it always hang on that same game or hangs/not responding to all games?
  2. Check the event viewer. It's likely recording an error.
    start-->run-->eventvwr.msc-->look at the application and system logs for errors (red X's)
  3. My pc is dual core 2 (2ghz) ram 1g(DDR2), videocard 256(Geforce), HDD 80g. Im using XP Sp3. its a new format and newly window installed and all drivers requirement. i have the same case, pc hang during any kind of games like DOTA, Crossfire and any other online game. I clean my pc all throughout. I even use and test other working videocard and memory, HDD even cpu fan. but nothing happen the pc still hang. please what other solution i can do?

    Does this computer have a single core processor?
    You may be running out of processor space, typical cause of hang.
  5. The minimum requirement is
    * CPU : Pentium 4 1.5 GH
    * MEMORY : 512 MB
    * VIDEO CARD : GeForce 5600
    * HARDDISK SPACE : 1,2 GB
    * OPERATING SYSTEM : Windows XP atau Vista
    * DIRECTX VERSION : 9.0c atau sebelumnya
    * INTERNET CONNECTION : Cable/DSL atau lebih

    can it be possible due to some antivirus or firewall programs conflicting? and how fast is your Internet?
