Preferred Solution: i cant play cd game on my comp

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 really don't understand whats going on i load into a game any game and then after about 5-10minutes my computer just shuts off without warning and then i boot it back up fine.

A:I load up a game play for about 5-10minutes the comp shuts off.

Hi mate,
First of all, maybe your processor is overheating because you have loads of dust inside the case and on heatsink...
Open the case and clean it from dust with vacuum cleaner or with compressed air...
Also check your PSU, if it is older than 1,5 - 2 years, you should try to clean it from dust too... Maybe PSU could not hold and it turns off... Touch the case near PSU after 5-10 min of playing games and check if it is warm... Also check if cooler in PSU is spinning and taking out hot air...
Let us know what you did...
Hope this will help you mate...

heres the side note on the game below

Note on Windows XP Compatibility for this title: The MIDI music option slows the game engine down considerably on Windows XP. It's recommended to use the CD-DA (full CD sound) music option so that the game plays at a normal speed.

is there any way i can set it up to keep the engine from slowing and not use the cd da,its a pretty old windows game and im sick of hearing my cd rom drive spin.its a cheap and therefor a loud one

thx for the help
should this have gone in the win xp section instead of the gaming section?

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.

why does this 3-d game keep locking up my comp? its called age of mythology. the requirements are 450 MHz 16 mb video card. my comp is 500 MHz pentium III 192 mb of RAM, and 64 mb video card.
 

A:3-D game locking up my comp

By "locking up" do you mean causing the whole system to freeze, and making you reboot, or just freeze the game?

I did notice your computer specs are barely making the minimum requirements of the game. The minimum requirements mean the minimum that the game will "run" on. That doesn't necesarially mean that it will run nicely.

Do you have the latest version of sound and video card drivers, as well as the required version of DirectX?

If not, try updating those.

Also, what OS are you running?

I'm fairly tech savvy. I know how to give any info you guys need. My main computer I built. But that's as far as my hardware savvy runs. I'm still learning about all the different BIOS and overclocking stuff. Like I know how to access the BIOS and change things, but I don't know what normal voltages or weird settings are. I just want to answer why my laptop keeps freezing up when I play WoW. It's a new laptop with good specs, it just shouldn't do this. Stock laptop, not built. Let me know what's needed to figure this out. I can provide any specifics you need.

Namely, one problem I keep getting apart from a total freeze is my comp will freeze up for a few seconds, then the monitor goes black, comes back on, and I get a message "Your display driver has restarted." Is that linked to my comp freezing and the sound looping? Or is that a display driver error that's apart from the freezing thing? This will usually happen a few times before the comp just freezes.

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

System Model: Satellite L455
BIOS: Ver 1.00PARTTBL
Processor: Pentium Dual-Core CPU T4400 @ 2.2GHz

Wait just noticed that.. I don't know EXACTLY what RAM I have... am I supposed to be using 32bit? I've never tested using 64 bit with RAM that may not support it. OR is it 64bit not working well with my GPU? I just don't know

Please HELP!!!! neither Xbox nor Linksys is of much help....

I presently have 2 comp and 1 xbox live all hooked up to a router - up until about 4 weeks ago I was able to connect to the internet with my 2 comps and xbox at the same time - now i can only get one at time on line.

>>>> The prob started after i had to unplug the Xbox from the Router - now we can no longer connect all 3 items at the same time, not even just 2 of them. It has to be one at a time or none at all.

Does any one know what might be causing the problem? Does the 2 comps and the xbox all need be on a different ip addresses? Please HELP me for Xbox Support nor Linksys Support seems to know what might be going on. Verizon (my DSL server) did mention that it seemed as though the Xbox
"might be" stealing all the bandwith - not for sure!!!!!

I await any and all HELP..... my family needs its 3 way connection back - it is killing mom - lol.

Thx,
Rhapsody
 

A:Networking Game/Comp Prob!

Yes, all three devices need to have unique IP addresses. Is DHCP turned on in the router?

You could always connect each device to the router and check their IP addresses. I'm not sure how to check the IP address of an Xbox but it can't be that hard.

You could alway download this to one of your PCs and install it. Do a scan of the IP range that the Linksys is ginving out (when each device is connected to the router).

It's possible that the Xbox is set to BOOTP or something else and has aquired an IP address and doesn't want to release it. If it's keeping an IP address and the router doesn't know about it the router will try to give out the same IP address which would cause problems for you.

This might come in handy as well.

i need some expert help. i have never played video games on computer, but i know im gonna need a good controller. is there a good one to get that stands out above the rest? i had one before but could never get it to work. probably operator screw up.
 

A:Solved: game controllers for comp.

Well, it depends on what kind of games you want to play. If you want to play first-person shooters, like Half-Life, Call of Duty, etc., then you may find that the keyboard and mouse are easier, and more natural to use. If you want to play sports games, then a controller is definitely a better option. Some games just work better with a controller than others.

Anyway, for the actual controller, I have a Logitech Rumblepad 2 that I use for baseball games, and it works great for me. I've seen many people using an Xbox 360 controller for PC use, and it works great for them. I'd probably try that if I had an Xbox, but I don't, so the Logitech controller works for me.

Anybody have any experience playing console games (gamecube, ps2, dreamcast) on a pc monitor (BTW I have a Samsung Syncmaster 906BW).

Don't double post: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic101505.html

Pretty much any time you send an input through a card you will get lag. So avoid that. If you have to convert analog to digital, then its going to be probably some expensive dedicated box.

Anyway I'm closing this thread because you aren't going to get away with spamming your problem in whichever forum you want.

Ok, so I got a new mobo/processor and now my computer games freeze after playing for a while. It varies from one game to another. Half Life 2 freezes after about 30 minutes, Doom 3 freezes after about 10 minutes, and Vampire Bloodlines only froze a few times the whole time I played it. I could go for hours without it freezing. I'll be playing and the screen will just freeze. With Half Life 2, when it freezes I hear an error sound and then I crash back to desktop. When Doom 3 freezes, I have to restart the computer. I doubt it's an overheating problem, because I can immediately start up Half Life 2 again after it crashes and play for another half hour. It doesn't need any time to cool down. Here are my system specs.

I am not allowed to install anything on my work computer, but I would like to be able to play games, other than the few that came on the computer. If I can find a CD with some simple games on it (haven't looked yet), could I play the games without having to install anything on my computer?
 

A:Play Game from CD

To be honest, that's something you should take up with your boss, to ensure you don't end up in hot water. If you're not allowed to play games during the work's time, that's likely for good reason. Moreover, if you're looking to circumvent a policy, even if it's, say, during your lunch hour or other free time, then they're still likely to frown upon this.

I'm not writing this to be a kill-joy; rather, I'm hoping I can give some advice which well help you avoid getting into hot water.

I recently installed a game called Tachyon - The Fringe on my new Dell computer. It was installed without a problem and appears on my Start menu. However, when I click on the icon, my mouse changes to the hourglass but nothing happens. I am only able to access the menu that allows me to choose to begin playing the game. When I insert the CD in the computer after Windows has loaded, an autorun program brings up the menu. When I choose Play, once again, nothing happens. What could be the problem? My computer information is listed below.

Processor: Intel Pentium 4
Processor Speed: 2.0 GHz
RAM: 256 MB
Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition
Display Adapter Model: Intel Graphics Platform (SoftBIOS) Driver
Display Adapter RAM: 64MB

Thank you.
 

A:Game Won't Play

Get the latest updates for your game here .
The system specs recommend a hardware accelerated 3D card. In other words a video card but it appears you have "onboard" graphics. I can't say that that's the source of your problem. I'd start with the game patch.

You guys help me. I wanna set optimal setting for my VGA with catalyst control center version 8.861.
My VGA is Asus EAH5670 and this is my computer's configuration
Operating system: Windows 7 ultimate 32bit
Processorentinium Dual-core E6600 3.1 hz
Memory: 2G ram Device: VGA Asus EAH5670 1G
Please help me! and when I play some game like: GTA IV, Mass effect..... It's always lag (maybe decreased fps). So can you show me how to fix it and set my VGA. Thank you!
 

A:I need some help about my VGA to play game

http://www.productwiki.com/asus-eah5670/
The Pros:Strong cooling performance and power efficient. Dust-proof fan, prevents the built up of dust. Compact and low power required, makes a good option for an HTPC.

The Cons:128-bit memory bus can hinder performance. Incapable of handing intensive or newer game titles.

The Asus EAH5670 is a mid-range graphics card aimed at casual gamers and people who want to take the graphics processing load away from on-board video support. While the performance is adequate for most common tasks, higher end applications and games will slow down quite a bit. Click to expand...

Get a better card if you have the money. Otherwise, you'll just have to live with the performance issues.

A few weeks ago my computer was having problems playing any game for more than 10 min. It would freeze up and become a colored screen with white, pink and black boxes. So then I upgrade my power supply which fixed the problem for a few days and now it's happening again. Could It be that I need to change my graphic card?

Computer Specs:
Intel Core 2 Quad 8300 @ 2500Mhz (27C idle, 35C at load)
8gig DDR2 RAM
650 watt PSU
GeForce GT 220 1gig (not overclocked) (35C idle, 80C at load)
 

A:Can't Play Game

You GeForce card is getting way too hot. Check the fan on the card to be sure it's working and make sure there is nothing blocking the fan on the card. 80C is 176F which is way too hot for any piece of eletronics to be running at.

Hey everyone, hope you're all well.

My first post here - and I'm getting ticked off with my PC. I hope you can help.

Whenever I try to play a game on my PC, it crashes - causing the PC to restart itself. It does this within minutes of the game loading. It dosn't do it in any other applications, it only does it when I try to play on a game.

Examples being: Championship Manager, Grim Fandango, Age of Empires.

I'll be in the middle of the game, and my PC just restarts. Sometimes, it gives me a blue screen of death.

When the PC has booted back up, the following notifcation is shown:

Blah blah windows has recoverd from a serious error:

C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini091207-02.dmp
C:\DOCUME1\Jody\LOCALS1\TEMP\WER7.tmp.dir00\sysdata.xml

I'm stumped.

I'd be grateful for any advice you might have.

Many thanks.
 

A:No Game Will Play on my PC

Random restarts like that are usually caused by power supply issues, memory issues, or heat issues.
Since it happens when you play a game, that probably the only time the cpu is working hard enough to overheat.

Please post the make/model of the pc, or a list of the parts used to build it. Is this a new pc, or have you had it for a while?

whenever i try to play hotline miami it says this "Access to the path 'C:\Users\Trysten\Documents\My Games\HotlineMiami\hotline.cfg' is denied"

does anyone know how to fix this?
 

A:Plz help cant play my game

Are you the Admin or Owner of that computer? If you are, then go to hotline.cfg and change the permission you have on that file. You should give yourself the "Full Control" permission.

Welcome to SevenForums. Not that I put to much stock in the WEI score but have you run it to see what your graphics is rated at and would you post a snip of it?

You can run it by going to My Computer>System Properties run the WEI program.

Also did you make sure you have the power connector(s) plugged into your card?
