Basically my 3d Games are not playing correctly. Whenever i launch the game (the games in question are world of warcraft, warcraft 3 and sometimes cs 1.6) it appears to lock up, the mouse freezes, the sound freezes and repeats and the screen freezes. After about 10 seconds of no mouse, keyboard, sound or graphics, the computer kind of catches up with itself, but then locks up again. Also i have been on Teamspeak during the freezes and i also get no sound from other programs. i find that if i spam alt-f4 then the game will eventually exit, which must mean the game doesnt 'crash'. I am not really sure what else i can do, i have tried updating the BIOS and have correctly unstalled the gfx drivers and installed the latest ones. I have also Re-installed the games
I have also found that if i reboot and go straight into the game it'll work fine...until i minimise the game and maximise back into it. It then starts doing what i explained above. Really strange problem. I have also noticed that it does not just happen in games. When i am playing media through windows media player the same thing happens, the screen freezes and mouse etc, but it then continues with the video, its not constant. will be looking forward to some feedback.
Once it totaly froze and i was forced to reboot, submitted a report to microsoft (for a laugh, didnt really have much else to do) and the technical information came up with a stop error, which may help
Error Message: STOP 0x000000EA THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER (Q293078)
Cheers in Advance
I have uploaded a Dxdiag report
