Help!! Computer keeps freezing when watching videos or playing games!!

Hi,

I'm having massive problems with my computer. Everytime I watch a video online or play a games the computer freezes on me. Now, I've had extra memory installed (its now 1GB ddr2), and I've just had a new graphics card installed (ATI 4600 HD), but the computer still freezes. Any tips or help would be appreciated.

Specs:
Medion CPU
AMD Athlon 2.13GHz
Windows XP
1GB DDR2
ATI Radeon HD 4600 series (1GB)
120GB HDD
DVD-RW
DVD-ROM

approx 6 years old

Thanks,
kiolp123 :)

  1. what power supply do you have?
    How are your RAM DIMMs set up? 2x 512MB?
    Drivers up-to-date?
  2. Hi,

    Not sure about power supply, but don't think its state of the art, probably normal. My memory layout is just one 1GB RAM, and I think my drivers are up to date, how can I check if they are and if they're not how can I update drivers?
  3. For drivers go to game.amd.com and follow the instructions.

    have you checked temperatures and cleaned out the dust too?
