I have this ANOYING huge PC problem. Whenever i try to play any 3d-game or if i am watching some videos on youtube for longer then 45 minutes in a row my pc just freezes. This started happening when i bought a totaly new computer (Costume made (by me)) (That means that i have got RAM on my own, Graphic card on my own, motherboard on my own, hardriver on my own etc etc. )
So now, when i try to play any game (Stronghold:Crusader, mount&blade, C&C Generals, GTA san andreas, Call of duty 2 and 4, Halo etc. etc.) my pc works just fine, for 2 minutes. It hase no problems during the menu, or when i create my character in mount&blade, but when any of those games start, its hell. They work fine for max 2 min (Halo works around 35 minutes) and then my PC, mouse, and everything else freezes. After 1 minute of everything being frozed, the screen turns black, like the computer is not even on. But the good news is that i can still play smaller games (fallout 1, fallout 2, Fallout brotherhood of steel, outpost 2: divided destiny, age of empires 2 etc.).
Details about my computer:
AMD Anthlon(tm) 64 processor
1.80 GHz, 512 MB of RAM
Microsoft Windows XP
Service Pack 2.
Thinks that i have tried:
Runned a mem test - all fine
Formated and reinstalled my windows - all fine
Checked for over heating issues - all fine
God knows what i haven't tried - all fine
Bought an additional cooler
Ohh, and by the way, when i turn off my graph card i can play Stronghold Crusader, but it only works on that game.
SO IF YOU ARE ALL SO GOOD, HEEEEEEEELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
