I posted a message last week about this, I got some suggestions. My problem is my computer isn't even half a year old, but since day one it's froze when playing games. I will be in the middle of playing a game and the game will freeze on the screen and the sound will skip. Eventually the sound goes away and I have to restart teh computer and boom everythign is fine. It randomly restarts, but I cannot go 2 hours with out it freezing. It dosnt matter what game i am playing, WoW, Fear, BF2, or HL2, it freezes on all of them.
When I posted this problem I was told it could be 1 of 4 issues. Bad Drivers (i have updated them since), Heat issue (my card has frozen at 69* C, and I've seen it freeze at 89* C, which i knwo is really hot, but I dont think 68* is very hot), Memory (i've bought 2 new gigs since my last post when I had 1 gig), or my power supply (which i admit is going out, but this is recent, my freezing problem has been happening for half a year). I have even disabled my Fast Writes in bios, and since I have AMD it automaticly does it in windos for me, unlike Intels.
So I feel backed against a wall, I do not know what else to do. One option is to buy a new fan for my video card, but who knows if that will fix it. Another which i will do either way is get a new power supply because mine is just too [bleep] loud haha, its going out on me.
I have done research and found NUMEROUS forums full of people asking about this problem, to me the common denominator seems to be when people have an Nvidia Card and an AMD CPU. This makes me mad cause I do not wanna dump money on something else, considering I just bought all of this, not even half a year ago. Another thign is now all of the nicer cards are PCI Express, and my motherboard dosnt have that.
Please I need advice this is driving me crazy!!!!! My computer runs these games no problem, but it freezes out of no where, and I hate it. Any advice, please, if 69* is too hot to be running games let me know, I know that 89* is. Also what sould my PSU temp be at? I really dont think its my PSU though. I just hope somone else out there reads this that has had this problem and fixed it. Also what video card should I get if I upgrade, I used to Love Nvidia but thsi has really let me down =(. Please let me know.
