Computer freezes when playing games.

Question

Only recently I have had a lot of trouble with my computer freezing up in yahoo games and has since started doing the same in windows. Its starts with the screen fragmenting and blurring (mostly when i play online and windows games) and in normal applications the screen seems to double and freeze. Sometime control alt delete work to restart it but mostly i have to do it manually. I have tried to scan for viruses using 2003 nortons anti virus but the computer freezes before it can finish scanning. PLEASE HELP ME

Your system has to be compatible to run some of the games Some games needs high resolution, memory and CPU speed If you don't have enough of these resources, your computer is going to freeze You need to upgrade your computer Likely the video card may need to change.

Good Luck!
