I have a custom computer with
Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3
CPU Brand: Intel® Celeron® CPU E1200 @ 1.60GHz
CPU Chip: 2 x Pentium II
Sound Card: Realtek HD Audio output
Display : ATI Radeon HD 3600 Series
Im new to the specs thing but If you need to know something let me know and I'll help you help me.
Either way, whenever I do something with intense graphics my screen will go blank. My computer runs World of Warcraft at max detail fine but then after maybe 2 hours my screen will just go blank , forcing me to restart my computer by pressing the reset button. And then a more detailed game like Oblivion, the blank screen comes faster. After about 10 minutes. So i decided to try turning all the details on Oblivion down. So I did and this includes turning Oblivion's resolution down to 640 x 480. After I did this it still would go blank. It took a little longer for it to go blank, not by much maybe 5 more minutes.
Another thing I noticed is with the sound hooked up is as soon as my screen went blank, my sound would sound like a scratched CD , looping the same 1-2 seconds of soundtrack over and over.
This issue tends to get kind of annoying, I tried to post on a different site and I got no help. This site looks more reliable .
If you know the answer to my issue or even just a possible answer, tell me. I look forward to fixing this.
