My computer seems to be sinking into an abyss of worsening troubles. Initially, I would have games, (Wolfenstein, Starcraft, Unreal, Doom 3) have three problems; a: Sound would disappear game would continue, b: Game would freeze and no amount of CTRL ALT DEL would help, or c: game program would simply close suddenly and I would be back in Win Explorer. This has progressed in the last couple of months to the computer not able to open programs sometimes(game or otherwise) and the internet will suddenly freeze. Also my troubleshooting option in Windows seems to have disappeared, although that may be because I have been 'messin' around trying to inexpertly fix this thing! I'm worried about having to format the harddrive, because I have tons of video in this computer (92 Gigs) that I can't figure how to burn onto Cd or DVD in smaller chunks. Also all my downloads.... I play movies and music through media player all the time and never have anything worng happen, it just seems to be games, and then other programs after I play a game. And it always seems to be related to the sound, but I might be mistaken in that. Anyone want to give a suggestions?

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go! Random lockups, mainly games? Could be a lot of things. Maybe you can find some clues. Go to start, my computer, right click, manage, view event log. Look for those with a red x at the time of the lock up. Right click on it, properties to view the details. You can also send a report to M$ and view their knowledge base for additional clues and possible fix. This will give a possible direction to go. :tazz:

Well, I see the messages you found keep referring to corrupt files. Try running the system file checker. Go to start, run and type sfc /scannow You will need to have your windows install cd in the drive so windows can get any files it needs.
