Oke i've had the following problem since i've got this computer.

When i'm trying to start some games (list is added below) they crash on startup, crash while loading or randomly crash.

I've had this for the following games:


- GTAIV (crashes on startup)
- Battlefield 1942 (crashes from time to time while loading a map or when i just started a game)
- Battlefield Bad Company 2 (crashes while playing)
- Call of Duty Modern Warfare II (crashes while playing)
- Some other games I can't remember

Games that work flawlessly:

- Dragon age origins
- Warcraft III + expansion
- Starcraft II Beta
- Assassins Creed II
- The Settlers 7 paths to a kingdom (however there's a memory leak but that's because of bad programming by ubisoft)


I've had the same problem over and over again. I always shut down 3 out of 4 cores not to make the games crash immidiately, but after a while they do anyways.

Things that aren't the problem:

- Overheating
- Not reaching the system requirements for games
- Bios updated
- Some others things i can't remember but might be mentioned here

Things that i think could be the problem but that i can't check:

- Bad motherboard:
1) My network isn't able to auto negotiate (10mbit half duplex now instead of normal 100mbit full duplex)
2) Shutting down CPU cores seems to help games not to crash (maybe it can't handle the power for some reason?)
- Corrupt version of windows 7 x64 ultimate (updates work flawlessly however)

I really hope you guys can figure this out cause my mind is blown


If there is any other information that i need to add, just tell me :)
