2.3 Intel XP home NVidia graphics. Onboard sound.
All my games freeze after a few minutes and then come to life again only to freeze again immediately.
Any ideas please

run dxdiag by going to start, run and typing into the box: dxdiag

See if there's any errors there, and run all the tests.

Try updating the NVidia graphics driver.

Also try updating DirectX

you could see if your disk is very fragmented - and defrag if necessary.

Have tested dxdiag. All working correctly. Version 9.0c. I will now go to the driver and defrag ideas.
Do you think the fan on the graphics card could be the cause? Thanks for the help. Val

what graphics card is it as it may not be able to run the game

Graphics card is GeForceTi 4200. I have run all these game successfully for some time on this card.

Have defragged and downloaded a driver. Thanks for all your help guys. I will see how things pan out
