Could somebody please help me. I have a game called virtual Sailor which uses DirectX. I used to play the game without any problems on my old PC running on Windows 98, but since upgrading to a fast machine running on Windows XP Pro, I have been experiencing some major problems.
I am experiencing the following problems in order of occurance:
1. Computer freezing completely requirng manual reset. 2. The computer resets itself. 3. The game just shuts down. 4. The sea does not roll smothly but jumps.
The maximum time I have been able to play the game is 15 minutes before one of the above occurs. Sometimes a game might last just 2 minutes.
I think the problem may be to do with software installed on my PC and not a problem with drivers, as the game was one of the first programs I installed, and I remember playing it for hours without any problems. I have many applications on my PC, could one of them be causing the problems. If so what type of applications could cause these problems.
I am going to give as much information about my PC as possible:
Computer - Multivision Vision Ionix 930 Processor - AMD Athlon 2800+ 333FSB Memory - 2 x 512MB PC2700 DDR Ram (1024 MB) Motherboard - MSI Nforce 2 Hard drives - 2 x 120GB 7,200 RPM CD/DVD Writer - NEC 1100A Graphics - 128MB ATI Radeon 9500 Sound - AC 97 Sound Monitor - 19" Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 930 Operating system - Windows XP Pro
If anyone has any suggestions, I would be very grateful.
