Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
My computer configuration is as follows:

AthlonXP 2000+
128MB ATI Radeon 9200
Windows XP

What happens is that whenever I play a game the computer gets hanged.
i know this is a common problem BUT there is nothing wrong with the
graphics card. If there any other solutions except for the Graphics
card then please help me out.

Measure power supply voltages.
Check temperatures.
Inspect the video card power connector (if there is one).
Check video card fan.
Check other system fans and (degree of dust buildup).
Try reinstalling DirectX.
Try another video driver.
Try another sound driver.
Look in the game error logs.
Run scandisk.
Run memtest86 for several hours.
Try patching the game.
Try asking in a gamer-specific web forum.
Try different games.
Try giving us more information.
