Could u tell me what the problem is?

Question

Hello,

I have a problem playing video game. I can play the game for few minutes, and then all of sudden, i hear this beeping sound coming from my speaker and the computer just freezes totally. This happens on every game that i played. Pressing ctrl+alt+del doesn't even work.

Sometime it happens when i am watching a video or movie, but most of the time is when i play games.

Could u tell me what the problem is? and how can i fix it?

thank you

This question was answered on February 1, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Check what power supply do you have?

Updated to the latest detonator drivers.

Updated to the newest directx9.

If it is doing all this with your CD rom (movies, games, etc) It could be that your CDRom needs to be set to DMA in the device manager 20 bucks says it is in PIO mode.

If that is not the case, consider your sound card and sound drivers.

Most importantly, have you been able to play games and movies with success before? If so, what hardware or software did you change before this started happening?

You could also increase RAM and check how much available Hard drive space.
