Preferred Solution: Keeps crashing whenever I play a game

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Keeps crashing whenever I play a game

Your error code (109) could be caused by a driver or hardware. Please run these two tests.
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.
1-Memtest.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

2-Driver verifier






Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

Hi Hass3 In order to be able to assist you with your issue, it would be useful if the helpers are had access to your BSODs minidumps. In order to do that, I suggest you to create a folder called "Dumps" on your Desktop, then, go in the C:\windows\minidump folder, and copy all the files inside in the "Dumps" folder on your Desktop. Once this is done, archive the folder by right-clicking on it, selecting Send to... followed by Compressed archive (.zip). Once this is done, attach the archive to your next reply and post it.

Hi

My windows 8.1 asus ultrabook. When I try to play a downloaded games online or even click the button it would just not respond. Even when I update my video drivers it never says it updates (geforce exp. problem). I have looked for firewalls issues but I can't find the problem. Combofix doesn't work for window 8.1 so that could have been an easy fix (maybe). My computer has been like that a few months.

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

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.

if this is happening in this game only and not in any other and your pc isnt overheating and meeting the minimum requirements,then there is a good chance its an issue with your optical drive,try a combo drive if you've got any around.its an incompatibility issue with some of the games.good luck

I have an ongoing issue where I log onto the glyph launcher, log onto my server, play for a while, sometimes hours with no issue but then BOOM, the game just closes on me and I'm booted back to the launcher. I have to push the PLAY button again, log into the server again, but it seems once the game boots me out then the crashing becomes more frequent.

I at first reported it to Trion support (useless) all they do is copy and paste previous responses from previous games sometimes not even removing the other game titles from it, but all in all I have spent over a month with them and I have:

1. Expanded my paging file to initial size of 1X RAM size max size 2X RAM size (to handle the memory of the game)
2. Switched from DirectX11 down to DirectX9 and back again. (in game)
3. Lowered my FPS (frames per second) to 100 (in game)
4. Switched off Multithread rendering and VSync (in game)
5. They have also had me change the priority of the game archeage.exe to high to see if that helps and it doesn't
( I would start the launcher, log onto the game and the server, go into the character screen, then cntrl + alt + delete into task manager and right click the process and set the priority to high then go back into the game)

Any help would be greatly appreciated

My wife has been trying off and on for several months to play an on-line game called, "The World Series of Pop Culture presents the Pop Culture Challenge," at http://games.vh1.com/online.php?gid=1049.

In Firefox 2.0.0.8 (Java and Javascripit both enabled )I can get as far as an 'Instructions" page with a clickable Play button. The word "LOADING" is slowly flashing over the instructions and "Transferring data from viavh1com.112.2o7.net..." is in the bottom Firefox message bar. It has been this way for over 5 minutes now. Clicking the Play button causes it to blink but doesn't seem to change anything. I am running McAfee Antivirus and the free version of ZoneAlarm firewall. I didn't get any warnings about missing plug-ins or needing to change any security settings.

Can anyone suggest what I am missing in all this that would prevent the game from playing on my PC?

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

ATI Radeon 9600 SE Graphics card (128 MB, if that matters to any of you)

That's about it, any help is appreciated.

By the way, the games are Guild Wars, and any Valve/Steam game (including mods and such)

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. It's been almost a week and I really need to play that game. (Where is the embarrassed smilie?) Please, someone help me.

Welcome to TSGF. YES =) you should be able to run GTA3 in a window as that is part of a service aggreement that they must adhere to With MicroSoft. Sony Entertainment recently had to make a change to an online game for that very reason. So you should be able to Run it in a window ....the only question now is ........How do you do it =)

Hello,
How do I tell the Frames per Second when I am playing a game? Is there a program I need to get? What do sites like Tom's Hardware and 3dguru use? Thanks

Also, what are some good benchmarking tests for video cards (such as 3dmark)? Thanks
 

A:How do I tell the FPS when I play a game?

download FRAPS. in addition to keeping your framerate going unobtrusively in a corner of your window, you can also assign a key for screen-captures.

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.
