[Resolved] My PC hangs up when I start playing a game...Please Help!

Recommended Posts

Hey All,


This happens all the time: After a minute or so of starting a game (Crysis, Lost Planet Extreme Condition, BeoWulf, etc.) it freezes and I have to manually RESET (or turn OFF and back ON again) to the point that I simply can NOT play any games at all.


I just upgraded to an eVGA 8800 GTS 320MB from an eVGA 7900GT KO. (I didn't have that problem with my 7900GT KO, but then again, I only played last years games on it (Doom3, HL2, etc.)


Here is what I have done so far with not luck:


-Downloaded the LATEST nVIDIA drivers (from Guru3D and nVIDIA)

-Updated my motherboard drivers (nForce4 SLI AMD)


-did NOT install a single application, except games on a fresh XP Pro OS (No Virus Scanner, nothing)

-I play the games at 1024x768 games (but rest of Eyecandies to the max)


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


This is my current configuration:


-DFI nF4 SLI-DR 'Expert'

-Opteron 146 (CABNE 0530 batch)

-Thermalright XP-90C

-Delta 92x38mm FFB0912HHE 2-wire (Got the 3 Wire version!)

-G.SKILL Extreme Series 2GB DDR (G.SKILL F1-4000USU2) 2GB

-Enermax 620W PSU 'Liberty'

-74GB WD Raptor Hdd (revision 00FLC0)

-Pioneer DVR-A09-XLB

-Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty FPS

-Gaming Bomb II (Black Colored)

-DELL 24" 2405FPW LCD

-eVGA 8800 GT 320MB
