Hi. I keep getting a black screen of death while playing Sims 2. I have the requirements. I have a Sempron and I know that they aren't great for gaming, I wonder if that's why. It goes black, as if the monitor swithches off, and the only way to resolve the issue is by resetting the PC. Here are my specs:

AMD Sempron 2400+ @ 1.63GHZ
512GB DDR PC 3200 RAM
ATi Radeon 9600 128MB.
80GB 7200RPM HD

A few fans and it's quite cool. I will probably buy a new barebones system anyway, but I want this fixed first. Thanks guys!

When you get the black screen can you get task manager up via ctrl+alt+delete?
