Preferred Solution: sleeps while playing games..

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, I have a question. My Lenovo Yoga 720 15.6" doesn't overheat, although I've noticed something rather odd. When I play Fifa 17 with the charger plugged in, the fans are very loud and the laptop gets pretty hot. When I play Fifa 17 on battery only (charger not plugged in) the fans are quite silent and the laptop doesn't get hot at all. Why is that? For all I know, I would expect the exact opposite...Thanks in advance!Kind regards,Tijs

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 720 15" : hot when playing games on charger, cool when playing games on battery???

The CPU runs at full speed when it is plugged in and runs more slowly on battery to save power.  Faster = more heat.

Hello all,

I've been having a few problems with my laptop since I bought it. The problem mainly occurs when I'm playing a game (usually xcom: enemy unknown or deus ex HR at the moment) but has occurred when I'm browsing the internet (albeit far less often). The BSODs appear to be random but I'm using a blue tooth mouse and have noticed the BSOD will usually happened if I'm using it. I've also noticed that my laptop screen with black out for a split second on games that are quite graphics intensive for my system.

Its been frustrating me a lot so I reinstalled and fully updated windows 7. The GPU drivers are all up to date also.

I've attached the SF file that is required and would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks for your time

I've been having this issue for nearly a year now (probably around 9 months). It started after my little sister made me get a virus by her trying to download something onto my laptop. I've since taken it to a reputable computer shop as well as followed instructions from other computer wizs and I think it's no longer there. Issue is, my computer has kind of developed another problem after that. It freezes on it's own sometimes, when I pick it up or even when it's on a desk and immobile. It would also freeze when I play a game sometimes, loud buzzing sound as the game continues in loops I believe. I had BSOD problems earlier this year that was solved (Apparently. I haven't gotten any in about 4-5 months) when I had Windows 7 but this issue still persists.

When it would freeze and I manually turn off my computer and turn it back on, the laptop would sometimes say no wifi could be detected. At all. Not mine, not my neighbors, nothing. I've never really taken it out of the house so I don't know if it'd act the same elsewhere. I would then shut it down and take out the battery for 30 seconds before putting it back in. Sometimes the wifi would work then or I'd go connect it to my Internet Modem and the wifi would start working over there too.

So I'm not sure what's causing this problem. It's not overheating as I had it cleaned less than 4 months ago by a professional. I've had this laptop for two years and I really wanted it to last me at least 4 because I'll be going into an ani... Read more

Hello sevenforums Community,
since about month im getting Bluescreens, which never happened before in 4 years.
It usually get the when i watch streams on twitch (which didnt happen since 1 week on my account though) or currently while playing League of Legends.
But they dont come every game, so i can for example play 4 games in a row and nothing happens or i get 3 one them in one game. Also they can come at any game time. It is kind of random to me how they appear.
The last two days I got about 7 so i really need help from u guys.
In the last two weeks i always got this message (STOP : 0x00007A (0xFFFF6FC50023598,0xFFFFFFFFC000000E,0x000000002A991880,0xFFFFF8A0046B30BE) ) without a sound and the pc didnt instantly reboot.
But the last days the Blackscreen stayed like 4 second so i couldnt see the error message on it, so i dont know if the error changed but there was this buzzing sound.

I really appreciate help (and sorry for my english skills ^^)

So I recently opened my CPU because it was lagging and I thought maybe a little clean up might do the trick. So I softly brushed the drivers inside the CPU to get some dust off. However, when I turned on my PC, it seems that whenever I watch videos or play games, a loud crackling sound comes out from my speakers. I don't know what is causing this.

I have tried disabling my drivers (sound and display) but to no avail. However, if I mute the volume on my sound driver, the sound disappears. Which lead me to the conclusion that it might be a conflict of sound and display.

Since the problem only occured when I opened my CPU and cleaned it, it might also be a wiring problem or something.

Can someone help me on this?

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

I just updated and rebuilt my PC and have reinstalled Win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a BSOD while using the PC. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet.
From the program Blue Screen Viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769
I can not find any solution to fix this issue, I have updated drivers, I have ran the Microsoft memory checker, , I have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, I even changed motherboards, got the errors on both SSD and HDD. The only things I haven't changed out is the PS and CPU, since I am using the PC to write this I am ruling out the CPU as the issue.

I have used Memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and CPU, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. They are included in the attachement

It seems to be software/driver issue but I can not figure it out.

Any help would be great, thanks!

Last summer I was downstairs on my pc connected to an ethernet to the router. Internet was great no problems really.. I have a twin brother who is upstairs and he used wireless he lagged alot and he only had problems if I was on my computer and that went on for a while. I have a grandfather who sat infront of me while I was on my pc and I couldnt do it so I moved upstairs but I didnt have a wireless pci adapter for my pc I had a wifi adapter which you plug in the wall to wirelessy connect to the router downstairs and I just put my pc's ethernet into the wireless adapter. I used that for a little bit until I couldnt take the high ping I was getting in game servers forcing me to just move my pc in the corner of my room and I havent been on it since. I have been playing ps4 using a wireless connect to the router downstairs. I have connection problems off and on but not every day. I today just got back on my pc and I am expieriencing constant lag and disconnection from games and discord. My router is the NightHawk AC1700 ,my Adapter is a tplink adapter. What can I do to increase my internet speeds I just dont want so much lag and horrible ping when I play my pc games with my friends.. and a reminder my router is downstairs with the modem.

Hello All

I have an HP Pavilion p7-1254 (at least started as that, had some stuff upgraded, explained below), AMD A6-3620 2.2Ghz Quad Core with AAHD2-HL board; save you the time of looking it up if needed. What happens is the system with will just freeze. Occasionally the audio that was playing with stutter infinitely like a skipping CD. Rarely I notice the system will stutter once or twice before totally freezing, happens in a couple seconds. But mostly, it just stops. When it freezes, the only option is to hard reboot.

I have had this problem for quite some time, probably about a year or two. At first I really didn't notice any consistency in the crashes, seems totally random. Some times it would freeze while browsing any random page, be it videos, forums, ad ridden or ad free. Any browser as well; Chrome, Firefox, IE. It also crashes when playing some games although not other games that have higher requirements; e.g. Guaranteed to crash, probably within 10 mins, if I play '8-bit Boy' on Steam (about as low res as implied) but I can go on 4 and 5 hour binges on Elder Scrolls Online or Skyrim with no crashes. I have recently noticed that YouTube videos (any video) is a guaranteed crash within a 20-30 seconds.

I have tried everything I have been able to find to do, to try and fix this issue; but none have worked. So far the hardware parts that have been replaced with new components are the RAM (now 2x4GB GEIL Enhanced Corsa PC3-12800), HDD (now 2TB WD Cavi... Read more

Hello guys. So here is my issue i dont really know how to specific it further then this still hope it will help.

I have been getting BSOD for a while now and it's getting to the point i cant do a single thing on the computer. I did the config for dumps and so on and ended up with this RAR file with all the info i assume. I mostly get the bluescreen when i try to watch anime etc on googlechrome. It never works it's a matter of seconds before the BSOD comes. But when watching it on other browsers like opera it works just fine "mostly" even there it bluescreens from time to time. And then there is when it's most fatal, Playing onlinegames. Whenever I play online games like World of warcraft, League of Legends, Heroes of Neweart etc etc etc i risk getting bluescreens. It differs very much from game to game how often the bluescreens appear and it seems to not be preformance related since sometimes i play constantly for hours when maxing out games and pushing the computer to it's limits when it comes to frames. And still the bluescreen lies in dorment waiting for a more suitable interrupt for me. From the looks of it the bluescreen is related mostly to my operatingsystem more then commponents after i looked at the dumpfiles via "Bluescreenviewer".

I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this and i hope you guys can help me with this. also this is my first post so I maybe did this typical "bad thread", Still i hope this will get me atleast closer to... Read more

Sometimes it happens after I've loaded the game and am in the moment of playing.

I have an Old Dos Game that I was able to find in bin format and was trying to figure out how to play it on Windows 10. I was trying to figure out DosBox but maybe it's just me but it's too complicated.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Answer:Playing Old Dos Games

With DOSBox things are rather basic since I can easily run some old 8bit dos games on the 64bit Windows 10 as well as previously seen on the 64bit Windows 7. With a basic entry to mount the game's program folder on a virtual drive you then simply type the name of the main executable to see it run.

One classic title was the 8bit Duke Nukem where the first entry was "mount c: c:\duke nukem 1" where the custom folder had to be created for the old game since that didn't have any installer. Once mounted I simply typed in "dn1" being the "dn1.exe" file for starting the game up. The game loads right up!

A PC World article on DOSBos makes for a good read along with the Wiki and other sources since this is an easy one to learn how to use. The PC World article can be looked over at: How to Use DOSBox to Play Classic Games | PCWorld

The dosbox.com wiki is seen at: Basic Setup and Installation of DosBox

And then there's the How-To-Geek site for another guide. How To Use DOSBox To Run DOS Games and Old Apps

With a newer game that is more involved like the Duke 3D sequel with a Dos/9x capable installer you would need a different type of emulator since DOXBox is intended mainly for the stand alone type games that simply unpacked into a folder from a cd collection if not bought back then on a floppy disk. A lot of those old titles are now if found totally free to download since they were long ago discontinued since at this late date who would still b... Read more

Answer:playing PC games

Some old stuff won't work on XP. You could try right clicking the .exe file that is the game; select properties; then compatibility. In this you will see options to run in "Windows 95" mode or whatever.I've never tried this myself, but have a go...it may work!Skeletal

How good is the TV for displaying PC game graphics? I have an Xbox and Alba TV and the picture/graphics are brilliant. I presume this is what the TV out feature of the grahics card is used for? Would you also overcome the problem with high response rates of some TFTs?Just imagine those big Rome Total War battles on a large TV screen :-)

Answer:Playing PC games on TV

I would probly think they were very blury.Probly crud graphics just as they would be on a PS2.I really cannot sit and play a PS2 because of the graphics its really slow and jerky,and the game programmers try to use a trail technique to fade out the all the bumps,of course it hardly works and gives the screen a cloudy affect.Xbox graphics on a tele are not bad,but everything is out of proportion,and sound doesn't go in time with the picture.You can indeed plug a S-Video cable from your TV-out port to your tele and see the screen as normal,but like i said it will probly be blury.I prefer classical CRT's to TFT because they have a more colourfull picture,although to be honest the TFT's give a crisper picture."Just imagine those big Rome Total War battles on a large TV screen :-)"Just imagine those big Rome Total War battles on a Digital projector,huh? ;-)

Over the years I've collected some games that I've never gotten around to playing or feel like playing again, but it appears that XP is not as friendly with some of them. I know there is a compatibility mode selection in XP. Would I select that for the installation exe, or the exe that actually runs the game, or maybe both? Is there a checklist of things to try before resorting to using an imulator?? Thanks!
 

Answer:Playing old games on XP

Ya, you could try compat mode but very few DOS games, if any, worked for me in XP, I can't recall. DOSBox and DroptoDOS are good. Easy to install and use.

First off I am new to all this
I have win xp home, and would like to play old games (such as Full Throttle)

I have tried the win xp compatability mode with no success.

Have downloaded scummvm and dos box but I simply dont understand how to use them.

I looked at vm ware which allows multiple systems such as 95 and 98 but I dont see how that works because of the more powerfull system I have (which I assume would be too powerfull for the old games) ie 1 gig ram 128 vid card athlon 3000+

I tried to buy a win 98 PC but it seems harder than I imagined.

One person was reluctant to sell me a reconditioned xp when I asked him to uninstall xp and put in win 98.

I am rather puzzled I thought it would be simple to play old games but apparently not so

I would appreciate any help to enable me to play these old classics. Such as what system I would need, Or help re VMSCUMM or DOS BOX

Thank You for your advice

Do other disks work in the drive, Compost? Are there any cracks or scrathes on the game disk? Have you tried washing the CD in a warm, slightly soapy solution? Have you tried cleaning the drive's reading heads? Last thing I can think of, is to check the games home site to see if there are any issues/patches with/for the game.

Answer:Help In Playing Games

that sounds like an obvious graphics card issue, could possibly be defective or theres a driver conflict or some other conflict with your monitor, quickly try re-installing your video drivers. If that doesn't solve anything try contacting the manufacturer.

Answer:pc for playing old games

If I were you, I would build a basic home system with Windows Pro. You have the advantage of playing older games and a more advanced system. Though it may cost more, you may find Windows 95, 98 even ME, to be way too ancient. Unless you have grown up with those operating systems all of your life I'd understand.

Question: playing games

Ever since I had windows 10, a game that I often play on windows 7 has stopped working so I am unable to use this game on windows 7.
I can understand Microsoft wanting to get people to move over to windows 10 but it is really unnecessary to stop things working on windows 7 just to get people to give up windows 7. We have paid good money to get windows 7 in the first place and support
doesn't end until 2020.
I even had to reinstall win 7 a couple of times to get it to work but to no avail. The most recent reinstall of windows 7 enabled me to play the game I wanted to play. The last time I was able to play this game was this morning. Then this afternoon I got
round to catching up with all the updates for win 7 - guess what happened, the game stopped working. So it's obvious one of the updates stops the program from working.
I'd appreciate having this update withdrawn and a replacement put in place so we can continue to use win 7. Either that or post some instructions on how we can restore the program to work.
Thank you.

Hi, im new here, i felt this was the place to post my problem.

When ever i am in the middle of playing a game, all of a sudden the screen goes black for a few seconds and then when the display does come back up, i get this animated fuzzy screen with the game still running. the only way to get it back to normal is to Alt+Tab out of the game and maximize it again. But after a minute or so it comes back again. this happens to most of my games.

I have the very latest Nvidia drivers and still i get the problem.
I know it might be something to do with my graphics card... maybe adjust some settings... i have tried changing the refresh rates.. but didnt work.

Can someone help me? I have uploaded a video if you dont get what i mean.

Answer:i am getting fps while playing games

Your 8400gs may be part of the problem you MIGHT want to upgrade that. The other problem you might be having is Windows vista is trying to run Windows Aero while you are playing those games. If you can tell us what version of vista you have... like home basic, home premium, Vista ultimate or business. Your processor is plenty fast. I can run vista on the Model under yours perfectly with 4gb ram. You may want to upgrade your RAM after a while because 2 GB might not be sufficient to multitask (well) in vista.

Does anyone else's phone get EXTREMELY hot when playing games? I play Chaos & Order, and usually end up playing like 5 minutes at a time because my 920 gets HOT... Like I-can't-even-touch-it HOT!

well i say games, ive only had a pc capable of playing decent games for a few days, so i downloaded a demo of doom 3 and i just wondered why my fans dont speed up whilst playing? it just seems to stay the same as when its not under load? is this because doom3 isnt "taxing" my system therefore nothing gets so hot to require fans speeding up?

Answer:when playing games...............

The only fan that is going to speed up is the cpu fan in most cases and You probably don't need it to speed up and that is why it isn't. Check your temps with speedfan or eversthome or I like people to use the software that comes will almost all boards. (then you are 100% sure the readings are accurate) What board do you have.?

I have an Old Dos Game that I was able to find in bin format and was trying to figure out how to play it on Windows 10. I was trying to figure out DosBox but maybe it's just me but it's too complicated.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Answer:Playing Old Dos Games

With DOSBox things are rather basic since I can easily run some old 8bit dos games on the 64bit Windows 10 as well as previously seen on the 64bit Windows 7. With a basic entry to mount the game's program folder on a virtual drive you then simply type the name of the main executable to see it run.

One classic title was the 8bit Duke Nukem where the first entry was "mount c: c:\duke nukem 1" where the custom folder had to be created for the old game since that didn't have any installer. Once mounted I simply typed in "dn1" being the "dn1.exe" file for starting the game up. The game loads right up!

A PC World article on DOSBos makes for a good read along with the Wiki and other sources since this is an easy one to learn how to use. The PC World article can be looked over at: How to Use DOSBox to Play Classic Games | PCWorld

The dosbox.com wiki is seen at: Basic Setup and Installation of DosBox

And then there's the How-To-Geek site for another guide. How To Use DOSBox To Run DOS Games and Old Apps

With a newer game that is more involved like the Duke 3D sequel with a Dos/9x capable installer you would need a different type of emulator since DOXBox is intended mainly for the stand alone type games that simply unpacked into a folder from a cd collection if not bought back then on a floppy disk. A lot of those old titles are now if found totally free to download since they were long ago discontinued since at this late date who would still b... Read more

Hi guys
At present I play MMO's through a 'ProLite E227HDS iiyama led 22" Monitor'. I'm finding the playing area to be too small. Especially with all the in game information that needs to be on the screen at all times.
I've looked at getting another larger monitor, but they seem a bit pricey for my pocket at this time. So, I happen to have a 'Toshiba REGZA 32" led/lcd TV' that I'm not using. I connected it to the PC and it displayed on the screen. However, only in a relatively small, square area in the middle of the screen. The only way I've been able to get it to fill the whole screen is by stretching the picture.
Q - Does anyone know how I can get it to use the whole screen and keep the aspect ratio. When I connected it then I used D-SUB, because that is how I was connecting to the monitor. I have since changed the way I connect to the 'iiyama' I am now using DVI. However the TV doesn't have a DVI socket. The other connection choices are...
HDMI x 3 and LAN

Answer:Playing MMO games on a TV via my PC

With the HDMI connection you should have no problems. Go to the control panel and set the screens to appear for the same desktop on both.

Hello . What I need is a little advice...

I noticed that the computer was running slow so I clicked on my computer and went into performance and saw that only 37% resources were free. I called Dell and they made me go into msconfig and had me UNCHECK many many items so that all the icons that were in the system tray are now gone. No big deaL but we have noticed that some of the games that I downloaded from the web no longer work!. Like a game called Snood. I downloaded it again but to no avail. It says you have to have Direct X version 7 to play the game but upon searching my files I have version 8. Do I download their version and overwrite the newer version with the older one??? Will this screw anything up??? What to do. I can tell you that now when I right click on my computer and look into the performance tab there is now 83% resources FREE. Wow. But what do I do with the games that no longer work. What could be the reason that they no longer work? I even RECHECKED all the boxes that they had me recheck just to see if they would work and they still do not work??? What could have happened. I even did a system restore to the day before the unchecking of the startup items and still they did not work. Once again what do you suggest I do and how do I correct it.? thanks.

Answer:games not playing

Hiya

Is this the version that you have of SNOOD:

http://www.snood.org/

It looks like a Demo, so maybe the timer has run out. Did it have a 30 day expire date?

Do you have anything left in the startup? Lets have a look:

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

Also, go here and download AddAware http://tomcoyote.com/lsindex.html

Download and run, ensuring that Deep Registry scan is enabled. Remove all except any references to Web3000 or new.net. If you're unsure, copy/paste the list here.

Also, whilst you're there, download and install RefUpdate to get the latest updates. Just click Connect.

Installing Direct7 over 8 won't do any good. In fact, not sure if it'll let you.

Also, where did you get HOUSE of THE DEAD from?

Regards

Question: Playing games

Hi,Not really sure if this is the right place to post - I don't really have much of a clue what I'm doing with computers. I've had a Dell Dimension for about a year and a half, about a month ago I reinstalled XP. I could only get the CD and DVD player on the cd drive thing (samsung cdrw/dvd sm-352f ) to work and it wouldn't recognise games - the screen froze every time I put one in the drawer. I downloaded the driver from the dell website for the samsung cdrw/dvd sm-352f and it worked fine for about two weeks before the same thing happening again. This time I've tried to download the driver again, and although it seems to install it doesn't fix the problem of not being able to run games.

Answer:Playing games

Did you get this machine new? What model? What is the service tag for the machine? (It should be on the side of the case). Do you have any spyware/adware/virus protecion in place and being used? Do you have a shiny Windows CD if you should need to reinstall?

Hi,I have upgraded my packard bell to a compaq system. the packard Bell has a number of older games on it which are getting old, but my kids still like to play them (such as The Sims). They still want to play them but I want to keep the Compaq for newer games and not load on the older ones, to save it from clogging up. Is there a way I can run the Packard Bell standalone and access the files / games on it through the compaq. For example leave the sims disc in tray 1 of Packard Bell and then put an icon on compaq desktop to play it? Also could I install MS word and excel on the packard Bell and then access them through the compaq, to save installing them on two pc's???Packard Bell is running Media Centre and the compaq is running pro.Any Comments appreciated.Thanks :)

Answer:Playing games through a different PC

This could be achieved in theory by using a wireless network setup and sharing the optical drives on your old machine... however as far as I am aware, you will not be able to run office without installation to your new machine. In order to setup your network, you would need to purchase a wireless router and set this up on your new machine... file and print sharing should be enabled and you would be able to access files that you choose from both machines. I am not sure how well the games will run but a wired connection with a hub would be your other option.

I have an Old Dos Game that I was able to find in bin format and was trying to figure out how to play it on Windows 10. I was trying to figure out DosBox but maybe it's just me but it's too complicated.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Answer:Playing Old Dos Games

With DOSBox things are rather basic since I can easily run some old 8bit dos games on the 64bit Windows 10 as well as previously seen on the 64bit Windows 7. With a basic entry to mount the game's program folder on a virtual drive you then simply type the name of the main executable to see it run.

One classic title was the 8bit Duke Nukem where the first entry was "mount c: c:\duke nukem 1" where the custom folder had to be created for the old game since that didn't have any installer. Once mounted I simply typed in "dn1" being the "dn1.exe" file for starting the game up. The game loads right up!

A PC World article on DOSBos makes for a good read along with the Wiki and other sources since this is an easy one to learn how to use. The PC World article can be looked over at: How to Use DOSBox to Play Classic Games | PCWorld

The dosbox.com wiki is seen at: Basic Setup and Installation of DosBox

And then there's the How-To-Geek site for another guide. How To Use DOSBox To Run DOS Games and Old Apps

With a newer game that is more involved like the Duke 3D sequel with a Dos/9x capable installer you would need a different type of emulator since DOXBox is intended mainly for the stand alone type games that simply unpacked into a folder from a cd collection if not bought back then on a floppy disk. A lot of those old titles are now if found totally free to download since they were long ago discontinued since at this late date who would still b... Read more

Hi guys,
I'm planning to make an order on simpleshoppinglink.com buy I'm still thinking: I want to buy a powerful machine for playing new big games and decided to ask someone's thoughts about it. So what would you buy for playing games: PC or Laptop?
If you choose PC: i7 4790k or i7 4930k? or another proposes?
If you choose laptop: which one?
 

Answer:What would you buy for playing games?

An i5 with a good video card. Games are GPU intensive so you'll need a video card to handle the latest games with 8 gigs of memory.

I personally play on a PC. There are those who play on a laptop. It boils down to a personal preference. if you need the mobility you go laptop. However, I can build a PC significantly cheaper.

Question: HDD playing games

I tried the forums but was unable to find anything help full in this issue so posting it now.
My secondary 80GB SG Barracuda is gone crazy. the problem is that the HDD gets undetected when its being written. If I copies anything from it or in it (any partition) it vanishes from windows and even from bios. After a couple of minutes I can re-detect it from the device manager. and its fine till I try to access it. After trying so many things I was able to copy data from 1 partition with old DOS based ghost.exe, by making image of the partition.
I'll salvage the data by using ghost but can my hard drive get repaired?

For the last week my computer would power down and stop whatever I was doing and after 30 seconds my computer would reboot. This would only occur while playing Skyrim or Call of Duty MW3. Along with this my image quality was very bad. The PSU was also fairly loud. I quickly noticed that the power supply was getting really hot.

Figured my PSU was going out so I got a new ThermalTake TR 2 600W. Hook it up sound is gone, resolution is better and I game for probably 6 hours thought the day. Then that night it does the power down again, and have had it do it a few more times trying to test things. Is this then a Video card problem? Currently running a Nvidia GeForce GT 220. I can look into the case and see that the fan on it doesn't seem to be spinning very fast.

Other information:
Processor: Intel Quad Core 2 CPU Q8200 @ 2.33GHz.
OS: Windows 7 (64 bit)

Primary question does this mean that my Video Card is going out as well?
 

Answer:PC powers down while playing games

does your case have sufficient cooling? i was having problems when things were getting hot and not able to stay cool enough.

Hello!

I am getting BSOD errors on occasion, as far as I can tell only when playing games.
I was having this happen a few months ago and was going to post, but it stopped suddenly - until yesterday! Now I've had another BSOD yesterday & today. Yesterday happened while playing Skyrim. Today happened while playing Age of Empires Online. I have previously tried updating my graphics drivers - I have *not* done so recently before these past two days, when the crashes started again.

One thing to note: It seems very random.. I can play a game for hours on end, and have no problems..

I tried to follow the guidelines for posting, I hope it is all correct.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.


tl;dr - BSOD while playing games. Can play for hours without it happening. Cannot reliably reproduce. Has not happened outside of a game. Thanks for your help!

Answer:BSOD while playing various games

You appear to be running a DELL OEM on a retail motherboard, which is not possible unless it employs a hackers activation bypass. There is no point troubleshooting this until we can be sure the problems aren't caused by the counterfeit installation.

My recommendation is to purchase a genuine Windows 7, then format and reinstall Windows 7.

Hi DoctorFlash,

Welcome to the 10forums.

nvlddmkm.sys is the Nvidia Video driver.
Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Nvidia. Be sure the clean install box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver.

Please try updating your BIOS.

Sorry. If you need any more information just ask.

But there have been occassions that WoW will cause my computer to BSOD.

Make it sure that the firmware of KINGSTON SVP200S37A120G SSD is upto date.
Kingston SSDNow Drives

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools, at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Update your ATI/AMD display driver.
You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.


During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.

hello, so I'll get straight to the problem. My PC has recently started crashing when I'm playing oblivion, cod4, or mortal online(beta). I can't tab out, alt f4 or get task manager up, and there is no error message, so I just gotta restart my pc. This never happened since about 1-2 weeks ago. Now all of a sudden I am getting crashes 5-10 mins into a cod4 game, 10-20mins in mortal online and abit longer in oblivion.

I have updated my drivers and vista to SP2 but it didn't help. I wondered if my gpu was overheating so I set my fan to 100% while playing, no help either. I'm really at a loss with this, I'm no PC expert, just an enthusiastic gamer, so my knowledge is rather limited...

I don't know if you need this but here's my PC spec anyway-
AMD PHENOM? II X4 920 (2.8GHz) 8MB CACHE (Socket AM2+)
4GB CORSAIR XMS2 800MHz - (2x2GB)
ASUS? M3N78-SE: DUAL DDR2, S-ATA II, PCIe x16, 2 x PCIe x1, 3 x PCI
Genuine Windows Vista? Home Premium 64 bit Edition + SP1,
250GB SERIAL ATA II HARD DRIVE WITH 8MB CACHE (7,200rpm)
512MB GEFORCE 9800GTX+
700W Quiet Quad Rail PSU + 120mm Case Fan

Thanks for any suggestions.

Answer:pc crashes while playing games

The first thing I woul look at would be to open the case and check for dust.
If you see some try a can of air to blow it off of all the cooling parts.
Especially the cpu, graphics card, and air intakes/exhaust.

If has been running that long it may just be over heating due to this.
Good Luck and post back if this doesnt help.

Answer:BSOD when playing games

Hello .

What you're experiencing is called a TDR (Timeout Detection & Recovery) and its not a real crash
in the sense that something wrong occurred in the Kernel.

Timeout Detection & Recovery (TDR) = "Display Driver Stopped Responding and was Recovered" is a useful feature that started in Vista and is also in W7 that allows the OS to try and recover from a video timeout so that the system does not crash to a bluescreen. Symptoms included a screen flash with the TDR message appearing one or more times or the screen blinking out to black. If the system cannot recover it will crash (Stop Error 116 typical). The issue is that the video card is not responding as expected.

There are numerous reports of hardware solutions to TDR's. The most common are:
Poor Cooling
Problems with the power supply
Overclocking Issues
Bad System memory or incorrect memory timings

The best resolution, is what your video card can handle and what your cpu can handle.

The sound carries on but breaks up, the computer is entirely unresponsive. Switching the computer off and on again (via power button) works fine and the computer starts up normally.

I know it isn't an overheating issue, the cpus and graphics card are around 40 C when this happens.
The frequency of crashes doesn't seem to depend on the game, whether its a 10 year old game or skyrim on full whack the crashes happen at about the same rate.

I recently downloaded Battlefield 3 and 4 on my SP3 i5 because it was a free download I have had saved on my Origin account. I tried putting both of these games on the lowest setting, but I still had difficult playing. Online multi-player was very laggy and slow and the fan started to kick in. Is this normal? Is the SP3 not meant to be playing games like this? I have League of Legends installed, and it works smoothly.
Somebody let me know what I am doing wrong or what I need to know

Answer:Why does my SP3 overheat when playing games?

Somebody let me know what I am doing wrong or what I need to know games are usually resource intensive, both on processor and on the graphics card. So some games can't play well on lower spec systems and hence the fan turns on to cool down the processor that is working overtime to do the game processing.

Answer:BSOD with win 7 64 bit when playing games

Probably heat related because of time frames you mention and when they occur. You're overclocking too much, if you are at all.

Copy the .dmp files to another folder, first.
