More XP game crashes
Man, do I need help!
Just built a new system:
Soyo SY-P41865PE Plus Dragon 2
30gig HD + 120gig HD
512mb 2700 DDR
SB Live 5.1
I did some parts swapping when I could. I have installed every new driver, XP is completely up to date. (just checked it again)
I even updated the BIOS on my mobo.
When I am running graphics programs (ie, photoshop, illustrator, macromedia, even 3d programs like 3dMAX) no problem.
The second I want to play a game (MOHAA, NOLF2, Marrowinds...etc.) I can play about 10-30min. then the systems crashes sometimes to the desktop sometimes it restarts the system.
I thought it might be my video card, but I swapped it with an old
ATI 7000 32mb card, and got the same results.
Next, I ran the memory check software from MS, thinking the ram was bad, but it didn't find anything.
Lastly I removed the sound card and used the sound off the mobo. still no luck!
Any help, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
