Recently i have been having problems with playing games on my computer, it happened once before but i updated my graphics card and everything seemed to be fine. But know it seems to be back.
I Installed a game demo ( bloodrayne2 ) which i have no uninstalled. And after a few days of messing around with the game it started to crash to just a blue screen, no error message or anything, this then caused me to restart my computer. Then i realised it was not just this game it was also any other games i have on my computer.
So i decided to try update sound card & graphics card = No avail
Then i uninstalled both and re-installed latest drivers = No avail
Tried unoffical graphics card drivers (www.omegadrivers.net ) = No avail
All that the above did was cut down the time i had to play on games, before i would get 10-15 minutes gameplay before it crashed. Now its almost instant as the game is loaded it crash's.
What can i do !? Please dont make this a hardware problem as ive had alot of problems before and my computers been running perfectly for 4-6 months since it was built and i ironed out all small problems.
Also, i dont know if this will help but everytime my game crashed i looked at event viewer to find on nearly 100% of all the crash's the problems was this :
I asked it to search microsoft for help with this problem, but it didnt find anything.
Anyway, you'll probably need to no my computer specs:
Windows XP Pro SP2
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ @ 2.00Ghz
1GB of corsair professional pc3200 RAM
Radeon X800 GTO 256mb
UPDATE : I tried to play a game exiting, MSN, ATI TRAY, ENVY sound, which are background tasks in the task bar. I had thought this had fixed the problem. But soon after 30 minutes i realised it had not, but this made the game last longer
Thank you for any help you can give...
