I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I run Windows XP with P4 2.0 GHz and 256 of RAM, but when ever i play games online for a short time, my computer freezes. Also, when i play songs for say an hour or even less, the computer freezes. I don't know what is the problem. This happens at least twince in a day.

The other disgusting problem is that, at times, the computer goes off unceremonously whiles working. This also happens at least once in a day.

Buddies, i really need help to solve this problem.

A:My Computer Freezes when i play game online or play music

Sounds like a build up of heat, the most common cause of 'freezing' try running with the case side off and see if there is improvement, if there is you need to add more cooling, making sure your current fans are working properly and are clear of fluff and muck can improve cooling performance dramatically especially the CPU fan and heatsink.

Hello everyone, my CS 1.6 freezes during gameplay, especially when I approach an ennemy. I have this problem since my pc uses a wireless network card to connect to my linksys router, before I was directly connected with rj45 cable. The wireless network card has a maximum speed (which I get) of 11Mbit/sec, my DSL speed is 768kb/sec, so there should be no problem concerning my connexion speed. I downloaded and installed all new drivers; video, sound, newest firmware for Linksys router, I even installed on a second partition a new and almost empty version of Windows XP Home. I really hope you guys can help me, I don't know what to do, I didn't try to reconnect my pc directly by rj45 cable to the router, but an other pc at home also connects wireless and doesn't have any problems playing CS.

=> Problem solved! I just went back to direct connection (with cable) to my router, and CS works fine again! This is a proof that wireless technology isn't perfect yet! (more precisely linksys' )

A:CS freezes during game play!

ummmmm just a suggestion not sure it will work but just reinstal cs and also on a wireless lan the connection might not be strong because there is no cord (I dunno thats what someone told me). Anyway im having the same problem sort of with my keyboard and mouse and they are wireless. Meh... goodluk

Hey, Here's the problem I'm having.

My computer freezes during game play, It does NOT CTD and there is NO BOD, just freezes. The keyboard and mouse are unresponsive and my only option is a hard reset. The computer runs fine while on desktop, browsing the internet or using a range of applications. Certain games will cause this Freeze though, such as:
(These games are new, bought, undamaged discs and have latest patches)
Medal of Honor: Airborne
Need for Speed: Undercover
Napoleon: Total war (On Steam)
and other fairly new and graphically demanding games.
I have not encountered this freeze with older games YET.

I know this screams "overheating" but I have had problems before with overheating and gaming but I have installed new components to deal with it and my current system has run perfectly with no issues for over a year now
this issue is new and it's unclear to me why.

This is what I've done to try and fix the problem:
I believe I've eliminated drivers, a hardware fault and overheating.
ATI CCC is v10.2 - The latest driver version for my Legacy card (Pre DX10 cards) had same issues with previous driver 9.3 & 9.6 also.

I dedicated days for tests such as:
CPU/Video/Disk Performance Test 5.7
Memtest86+ v4.00
S&M Stress Test 1.9.1 and Video Memory Stress Test 1.7.116
Ontrack Data Advisor 5.0
IsMyLcdOK (Monitor Test) 1.02

All tests came up clean, my PC's hardware is functioning correctly.

I will paste here the EventViewer logs... Read more

PC is 3/4 years old with new PSU and HDD in use.
PC was fine after new hardware install.

Had my graphics card OCed for a while (1 year) and had no problems with gaming until about 1 month ago
to which i started getting freezes playing World of warcraft.

I have stopped OCing but this hasnt effected anything.
These freezees still occur in game only but BSOD's happen randomly no matter what.

These BSOD's have only just started.

I haven't ran any tests yet as i wanted to ask for your opinion first with my crash result.

Updated my ATI drivers but had no effect.

Thanks in advance.

When I try to play a game the computer will either freeze or the monitor will just go black. The light on the monitor will start blinking green, or the monitor test will come up saying the monitor is working properly, but has been disconnected. I am using Win XP Pro. I have replaced the hard drive, try different monitors and video cards. I currently have a cd rw and dvd rw drives, I have disconnected both from the cable and just connected one at a time and it doesn't help. I have no idea what is wrong, I am thinking it could be the motherboard. I need help.

I have a Gateway 450mgz 256mb RAM system and my Geforce2 MX 200 32 MB (AGP) card freezes always when i play games. Any game. But it dosn't crash right away, a few mins into the games. I change clockcore speeds diversely and test differant driver options & used 3rd party nvidia programs and yet no hope. Only thing I noticed was when ever I alter clockcore speeds sometimes* it takes a little longer to freeze then normal. I have Win XP and all latest drivers. It is useing the same IRQ as my sound card. So if you have the slightest assumption of anything about this problem, speak your mind! And have a nice day .

I have a dual monitor setup. I also have considered using a dual monitor setup with my tv instead of a 2nd monitor. I was just wondering If there is a program that lets you choose which display to play your game full screen on? (Even if the display is not your "primary" display) I know It is possible because GTA San Andreas has it built in. I have tested it and San Andreas can run on my TV or 2nd monitor full screen.

PS: If it matters, I'm using Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT with the latest official drivers. (175.19 July 9th)

I have only tried playing two different types of games on it: Fire Emblem 7 (USA version) and Fire Emblem 6 (Japan version with eng language patch.). The latter game ran fine until I got to chapter 2 and during the opening cutscene (people talk to each other) the game freezes. I have only changed the priority to highest and added cheats to both games. My version of VBA is: 1.7.2 and I have used only code breaker cheats.

I recently built a new computer for gaming (specs posted below) but it freezes completely while I play any game (Specifically Skyrim or Borderlands 2), requiring a system restart by holding the power button. I've tried everything I can think of. All my drivers are up to date, I've tweaked graphics settings both basic and advanced (such as setting the affinity of the games to just 2 cores, as I have seen suggested online, as well as adjusting the 3D settings in the NVIDIA control panel). I've run memtest86 and the memtest that is on the Windows 7 disc. Reformatted and reinstalled fresh Win 7. System temps are well within limits. There are other things I've tried that I can't think of at the moment, but I've spent a week troubleshooting this problem with zero luck.

Both memtests came back clean, by the way. 0 errors. I have also run a chkdsk /r, will post the log if it will help any.

If anyone can help me solve this, I would be so grateful!

Alright you guys, this is going to be kinda long, i need to explain the story here.

The Problem

What's happening is this: Whenever I try to play any game at all, when i get into the main menu, like the first menu in Warcraft3, or after i log in World of Warcraft and enter the world... my computer makes a 'click'. And after that the fans start to slow down, but in like half a second, it seems like it catches itself and the fans speed up again, but the screen is frozen. Last time this happened it went to a blue screen and i had to restart.

What I've Tried

My friend suggested it could be my Audigy2 Sound Card, because it was the last thing i had put into my computer. So i took that out, and uninstalled all the software and reinstalled the motherboard sound drivers, and the problem dissapeared for about two weeks.

I've updated my videocard drivers, to the latest version. I've done a directx diag test, everything passed. I've posted this in hardware beacuse i believe its a hardware problem? But i have NO idea what the heck the root of the problem could be.

I would think it was my videocard, but i just had the videocard's fan replaced, and while it was in, they did some benchmarks on it, now that i think of it, the problem didnt start until after the new fan was installed. Could the videocard fan be causing such a huge problem?

Hey, I recently installed my old game Warcraft III.

When i get to about the menu the game freezes for about 20-30 seconds. The screen then changes to the smallest possible resolution and loses most colour. (Colours turn all foggy and blobbery.)

I then get the follow dialogue box:
"The igxprd32 display driver has stopped working normally. Save your work and reboot the system to restore full display bleepionality. The next time you reboot the machine a dialog will be displayed giving you a chance to upload data about this failure to Microsoft."

I THINK i remember this happening for another game awhile back too but i can't remember. To fix the problem i just restart and it restores, but how can i prevent this from happening so i can play!?

I have a Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family, which i am pretty sure is up-to-date.
PS i have even tried running the game in window mode.

Display has strange lines and is distorted, when i try to play a game it will hang

​The display is not working correctly, it has several werid lines, and a few blue lines going down the screen I have tried cleaning out the fan and heat sink thinking it was a overheating problem, but after i did that the problem still has not been resolved, It started one night while i was playing a computer game, and suddenly the screen got distorted and was not responding to anything, so i did a hard shut off. Afterwards i tried to start it again, so it started up then shut its self off and then started up again, and since then the screen has been as if its in safe mode, I took it to best buy so they could take a look at it and when they plugged it into the computer screen they had there, it had the proper resolution and looked fine, so i took it home and plugged it back into my monitor and it was good until i started up playing a game and it did the same thing again.

I have done a few memory tests and they seem fine, and i have run updates on the drivers for the video card and motherboard so those are both current. I really have no idea what the problem can be, if someone could help me i would really appreciate it!!!

Hello everyone, As described in the title, I have an issue with my Yoga 720 15" with the GTX1050 and external monitors. The external display disconnects whenever I launch a game in fullscreen mode or when I change and apply display settings in Windows 10 (for example when I change from extend to pc screen only and then back to extend). Basically whenever the screen has to turn black and reload new graphical settings. The only solution then is to replug the HDMI cable on the monitor.  I have tested this with multiple monitors and TVs as well as different types of connections such as usb-c to HDMI cables and usb-c hubs with integrated HDMI ports. Graphics drivers are all up to date.  Can anyone help me out here?

Your graphics card is outdated. You should be able to play older games smoothly on it, but newer games will struggle. What games are you wanting to play on this computer?

Hello, i need to ask people of this problem because i cant figure this out...

Recently, iv upgraded from a GeForce 5500 (which had no problems in the past) to a GeForce 6200 (which is fine for me, out of date i know).. Im finding that whenever i open anything pretaining to Video games or even just random occurences, that it hard-locks and the graphics get very odd.

So, i figured that maybe my computer cant run the game. And it can. So i ruled out that aspect. So it must be my GeForce doing this to me.
So, does anyone have any idea what my problem is?

As you may already know, by the title, I'm having trouble with the graphics of the game 'Black & White'. Everything like the trees and people, are very WEIRD things like eyes, or colours such as green. I have tried everything that I can think of, like downloading a patch from this website (I think it was voodoo 3DFX tools) unzipped it, then tried it, and it still didn't work. Everything else seems to be running smoothly, and problem-free though. Does anyone know what the cause of this problem ?

Help greatly appreciated, aswell as five million pounds.....


EDIT: Website is www.voodoofiles.com/3201
EDITEDIT: (Man I'm obsessed with these!!) Oh yeah, and I've updated EVERYTHING such as drivers and graphic things, so don't ask about them.
EDITEDITEDIT: (Thats it I give up!) I also forgot, that before I had to reboot this computer, that the game was fine, except for the err, occasional crash (due to too many temple things) . And may I add, I hope this is the last edit I make

A:Black & White (the game) graphic problems

Post your system specs, that will help more.

Did you check if there was a patch available for the game, and if so, did you install it?

Hi, I am not getting proper graphics for godfather game. The gameplay is like, the characters are ok but the environment and vehicles are all white color. I have intel 82852/82855 gm/gme graphic controller with 64 mb video memory.

A:Godfather game problem with graphic issues.

You need a DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics card and the Intel 82852 is only DX 8 compatible. If its a laptop you need a new one, if its a desktop machine I would consider getting a decent graphics card to play games.

Ok so 2 days ago my computer started showing white speck on the background and mainly on the windows taskbar. These specs only seem to appear when the computer is processing information. Every key stroke and when the computer is receiving information from the internet. Also Graphics in game seem to be really jacked up. Walls appear where they shouldn't and at weird angles. Characters have large spikes growing from their hands, feet, and end of weapons. I have tried to install an updated driver, scanned for viruses, unplugged monitor and still nothing has worked. Any information to help resolve this issue would be appreciated.

Also, have ATI Radeon HD 4800 series vid card and an AMD phenom 9850 quad core 2.5
I tried screen shotting the specks but they dont show up on screen shots.

So, when I try to run Trove or Tera. My PC reboots entirely. I recently re-installed Windows 7 and everything should be fresh. I believe I attained the correct drivers and I've used CCleaner to get rid of any excess old drivers that may have been there, but I don't believe so. I wanted to follow up with a memory test on ram but I don't have a blank CD or a usb to run the proper tests, I tried a windows tool to do so but in event viewer the test just comes up blank with no details as to what occurred.

http://prntscr.com/85ubo1 what it says about each reboot in event viewer.
I've attempted to run WhoCrashed as well with nothing being found by the program.
I suspect it might be the power supply but it runs fine with games such as League of Legends and Kingdoms of Amalur with no issue whatsoever, so I don't know how to even begin to pinpoint this.

A:Reboot when trying to play graphic extensive games.

When it comes back after a crash does work fine immediately or is the a delay?  A delay I have found usually is a heat issue, speecy only show idle temps.  You may want to get a copy of CPUID: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

Now I type with 1 finger so all this is uncharted territory with me
I recently took the plunge & spent 35 on FM2014
But once installed it wouldn't run !!
I was told the graphics card in my system is under minimum spec so the game will not run
So I bought a new graphics card on Tue - went to fit it last night & it did not fit.
Turns out, or so I'm told, my machine has an old AGP port !!!
Thankfully PC world gave me a full refund, but they don't supply any graphics cards for an AGP port
I was advised it would be better to just buy a new PC !!!
Well this just isn't financially possible at the moment unfortunately
I've had a quick look online & there are some out there but I'm not sure what minimum spec I need in order to play this game
Looking at the spec of my machine at present ( below ) & the requirement of spec to run this game, what AGP Graphics card will do the job for me
Any advice or nudges in the right direction would be very much appreciated

I seen this one on amazon... 'Sparkle NVIDIA GeForce FX5500 Graphic Card (256MB DDR2 64Bit, AGP 8X, TV OUT, DVI, VGA)' but apparently it's below Minimum spec - it states FX9000Ultra and above to run FM2014 but I don't know what this means or where to look !!

Can anybody help ??

Also I can post my DxDiag Notes if it helps - I was asked to on another forum but they still could not help

Hi, i got a problem with my new laptop its an HP mini 110-1020La, i've installed some games like age of empires 2, age of mytholgy and dawn of war but i cant play them, when i start a game an error message pops up "could not initialize graphics system. Make sure that your video card and driver are compatible withDirectDraw" or "Failed to initialize video card" what should i do?

A:Can't play games on my new laptop (could not initializa graphic system)

My initial thought would be that your graphics card (Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950) just doesn't support something the games require, this can be a fairly common problem with laptops.

The requirements for Dawn of War would support this as a requirement Hardware Transform and Lighting (T&L) which the GMA 950 does not have. It does support T&L but through software, not hardware.

This shouldn't cause a problem with Age of Empires 2 or Age of Mythology I don't think as I am not aware of any particularly difficult requirements for those.

If this is the cause of the problem there isn't really anything you can do apart from getting a new laptop with a graphics card that supports those requirements (they can't be changed in most laptops). I can not say for sure that is the cause though!
