Computer Graphics Crash Please Help

  Mitchell.B 19:55 09 Apr 2010

When ever i load a game such as Modern warfare 2 or Aion my whole pc freezes the graphics become distorted and theres a sound loop this has only recently started. my computer is not too dusty inside and Everest says it's at an ok temp.

pc spec:
Graphics: Nvidia Geforce 9800 GT 512mb
Intel i7 @ 2.67 GHz
Motherboard: Asus P6T Deluxe
Windows vista 64bit

heres a picture i took on my phone of what happens when loading a game (the same happens when its sat on screen saver)

The graphics become distorted a sound loop is constantly playing and the only thing i can do is kill the power.

My graphics and sound drivers are up to date, also i have no had any Blue screen of death either

Please help thank you

what you experiencing is not uncommon, it means the pc cant cope with the game settings you have chosen. their is a website that you can use to assess if your pc is suitable. and the other option is to reduce settings, the screen grab shows the pc cant handle the resolution the game is set at so it crashes. i gave up on pc gaming because every game needed more and nmore spec, got an xbox in the end.

I don't play games on my PC for the same reason as SANAP. It would cost too much to keep up with their every changing and demanding needs.

Close this thread and re-open it in the 'Games' forum. click here
Tell them what spec your PC is and ask them for their recommendations on what spec you need and/or wht your problems might be caused by.

I thought, after reading your last post, it might help if you had some information about that file.

Obviously I was wrong.
