Hi,

I have been having this problem with my computer for a while now. When playing games with advanced graphics, the screen will freeze and there will be a high pitched sound coming from the computer.
We have a 256 MB graphics card, 1024MB RAM, 2.8Ghz Pentium 4.
We figured it was the power supply, so went out and bought a new 400W supply. The problem is still happening though.

Any ideas on what the problem could be or how to fix it?

Thanks

It sounds like the game is just too large for the computer (which is why it freezes). I'm guessing all other applications work fine except for that game? Power supply won't help either, with your hardware you want 115w, running a full 400w is way too much. Most likely, you need faster hardware.
