I used to record game play videos a long time ago and I would like to start doing it again but I am having some problems. A couple of months ago my computer had experienced a problem which led it to be unusable. I figured out that it might have been a video or hard drive failure. After doing a factory restore I got my computer working again. It has been fine since but I seem to have ran into a problem that I never had before the failure. Every time I try to record game play, after I stop the recording, my computer's fps goes to 0 and then freezes so I have to unplug it. I know it isn't the recording software causing the problem because I used 2 different recorders- both leading to the same trouble.
I am posting this because I got my tax refund yesterday and I bought a new video card online. I bought it because I wanted to improve my game play but I would also like to know if this might fix my problem. I figure that since recording is causing a problem that it might be related to my video.
Wasn't sure where to post this but I think this is the right place.
