Preferred Solution: WANT TO PLAY MY GAME

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.)

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.

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.

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.

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?

When you install or run the game, right-click the application and click "Run as administrator". This should give the program the appropriate permissions to copy a driver to the Windows directory.However, I personally would be leery of a game that wants to install/copy a driver to the Windows directory. But, if you want to, that is how to do it (right-click > run as admin).

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)

650 watt PSU

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.

Ok so there are a few things you should try to get your game working properly again.
-uninstall and reinstall to the game to remove and replace the registry files (one may have been corrupted).
-update your display driver
-update your audio driver
-Make sure you have enough RAM
-Defrag your computer and check for spyware and viruses
-See if there is a noCD patch for the game
-Try a system restore point (maybe an update corrupted a windows file)

Hopefully one of those things will help you out. If not just post back here and we will try something else

I hope I'm in the right place for this plea for help. I have XP and last Friday the power supply on my PC died. A technician came out and replaced it. He also convinced me that I needed a bigger memory card (from two hundred and something to five hundred and something?) I figured that while he had the box open I'd ask him about my CD player which has been refusing to work for ages, and needless to say he also installed a new DVD burner. Ever since then I haven't been able to access the interactive Sudoku game that I am addicted to. On the webpage I press the link for the game, but the next screen only shows the small box at the top and no game. I suppose some setting has been changed, but I've no idea what.

Hey all when I try to play a well known game World Of Warcraft it pops up saying that my account has been locked. After calling Blizzard they told me from their end my account WASNT locked and that I needed to download a more up to date spyware. So I've downloaded a good bit all day, about 3 hours worth.

I need a new game to play on the pc
I like to play first-person online shooters like Counterstrike and Halo where I can pwn a number of people in a single server. hehe
I've been considering buying Day of Defeat: Source but wanna make sure i get my money's worth. Is DOD any good? If it is, should i get any other version (earlier like the original) instead?
Price is not a big concern.

Also is Left 4 Dead any good? I saw the gamebox, but it didn't look very good. plus, it only has 4 max internet server players i think

Ok here it is. I play the game Asheron's Call. As of late i can't get to the game b/c just as it is about to load the character list my screen goes black and the whole computer freezes up. I'm not real good when it comes to technical stuff so i don't know what to do. I've run my first aid program as well and it has come up with nothing. Any idea's on why it is doing this and how to remedy it? I would appreciate any and all help b/c i have to pay money to play it and have not been able to make good use of that money! Thanks and please help.
