I have a new athlon athlon 2800+, 200gb Hd, 1 GB RAM XP home. Every game I load crashes to desktop after a while or occasionally freezes. I have Norton utilities/AV & firewall, but crashes happen even when these programs are disables. Any ideas please? Cheers.
do you have the latest graphics drivers. I have found in the past that this always the problem. I even found out that a 300W power pupply was not enough for my system and crashed all the time until i got a 550W laters.
did you replace the motherboard? even if you didn't go to the manufacturers site and down load the latest drivers. also heat may be an issue here as that would tend to freeze your pc, particularly if you are playing intensive games. post your full spec for us to look at
