MOBO: Asus P4R800-v deluxe
video: 9800 pro
1 gig ram
4.00 ghz pentium 4 processor
My computer was recently crashing due to out of date BIOS in addition to a faulty power cable. Now, a new problem has arisen.
While playing Day of Defeat source for instance in game play the screen will freeze and the last 1/2 a second of audio will loop. But, Windows is still running....
I can KIND OF alt tab and guess what the screen says and get out of the game and then i can restart the game.
This has happened repeatedly with that game.
With BF2 it just freezes and i have to reboot. This only happened once (at that point i had to come on here and try to figure out what to do).
My brother just graduated from college with a degree in computer engineering and he suggests possibly: Video card, MOBO, or power.
Thanks for any help
