I have problems when i start some games.
I basically CAN'T play the following games i own
the elder scrolls 3(morrowind) + all expansions(goty edition)
unreal tournament 2003
unreal tournament goty edition
grand theft auto 3
runescape HD(not low detail)
age of empires 3
and counting .....
i CAN play these games
diablo 2 + expansion
age of empires 2 + expansions(collector's edition)
and that's it....
thing is when i run the games i cannot play.. the game crashes at some point of play ( usually like 1-10 minutes)
my system requirements are good enough for the games.. and the games run PERFECTLY as long as i play till the crash..
here is my system info
video card : ATI Radeon x700 Pro
sound card : ugh didn't find this but i believe it supports 3d sound or something..
microsoft windows xp pro v2000
service pack 2
Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.60GHz 2.59GHz, 1.00 GB of RAM
my computer memory is 149 Gigabytes
i think i entered everything correctly
what have i done so far?
well i have tried running the games at lowest requirements possible
i have turned off sound completely and with low/med/high requirements
i have closed all programs i can and then run the game with every setting possible(okay not every but as much as i could change and vary them)
i have searched over internet if ati radeon x700 pro is a good enough video card.. i found out : yes
i searched if somebody else had problems like this, i found out one guy basically did and there he was answered that he would have to buy a new cooler and put some paste on it. Also to try every settings and stuff .. my dad suggested me to do a format and that would delete everything in my comp and maybe then it would run.. i don't know about that... i wouldn't want to do that.
i apologise for my very faulty english, but my mother language isn't english so..
i would be grateful if you'd actually know what else could i do :P and maybe give me a little guide since i'm really bad at such deep computer stuff.
edit: did i mention that my games do not crash to desktop.. but my COMPUTER goes black and eh screen shuts down and music goes away..nothing i can do.. but computer is working..what's the deal with that..
