My computer freezes everytime I try to play CoH or some other game. I know the GC is not overheating because I cleaned out the computer completely and there's good air flow. It freezes less than a second into the game starting. I've tested the system with several games but each has done, basically, the same thing. I don't know what the problem is.

I checked the computer using Windows Memory Diagnostic and it said that there were no errors. Supposedly it checks the RAM and hardware for issues; it found not a single thing wrong with the computer, though. I ran it through another diagnostic at (Link: http://www.pcpitstop.com' class='bbc_url' title='External link' rel='nofollow external'>http://www.pcpitstop.com)http://www.pcpitstop.com and there were no issues found either. I'm pretty much at a loss now. The computer is acting a bit strange sometimes (loading slower than it should) but I might just be imagining it.

My system is:

Windows: Windows 2000 5.0 (Build 2195) Service Pack 4
Internet Explorer: 6.0.2800.1106
Memory (RAM): 1024 MB
CPU: AMD Athlon™ XP 2400+
CPU Speed: 1991.2 MHz
Sound card: SB Audigy 2 Audio [A400]
Display Adapters: RADEON 9500 PRO / 9700 | RADEON 9500 PRO / 9700 - Secondary | NetMeeting driver
Screen Resolution: 1024 X 768 - 16 bit

Try setting you screen resolution to 1024 x 768 32 bit versus 16 bit.
