My computer freezes while playing video games. It has done this in three different games. It will not respond and plays a sound loop that's mostly some harsh static, requiring me to reboot. It has never done this outside of a game.
I am runnin Windows 2000
Athlon XP 3000
1 gb pc3200 RAM
ASUS K7S8XE mobo
and a soundblaster audigy 2zs platinum
Since it happens in games, I've been trying new video drivers, new RAM, which hasn't solved it. However, I came accross this thread from this forum:
I've tried this solution, but the PfModNT properties claims "This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. (Code 24)" and the startup type is not selectable at all. So now I've tried updating my sound drivers. Reinstalled from disc, and installed the latest from Creative website, which has not fixed PfModNT or the problem.
Any suggestions? Either concerning PfModNT, or something else entirely? Thanks in advance.
