Preferred Solution: Game freezes on brand new computer regardless of OS

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Game freezes on brand new computer regardless of OS

There are many things that can be the cause of this. I first thought it was the GPU, but as I read on, I think it could be either a RAM, temperature, or HDD issue. It is most likely a RAM issue.

Another issue could be overheating, but since the games crash basically instantly, it doesnt seem to be an issue. Just to make sure, can you download RealTemp and tell me temperatures on the CPU? Also, download GPU-Z, and tell me the GPU temperatures (sensor tab of GPU-Z, under "GPU Temperature").

Most likely cause: It could also be bad RAM (this is the most likely reason). Download Memtest86, put it on a flash drive, and boot into it. Run Memtest about 5-10 times and tell me the results.

Hi there,

just a couple of usual things to try:

Have you checked the temperatures of your machine using something like HWMonitor for the CPU and GPUZ for the Graphics card?

Connected 2x6pin power leads to your GPU

Run memtest on both of your ram sticks individually?

So I just bought a Dell Studio XPS 9000. The specs on it can be found http://www.dell.com/us/en/home/desk...spx?refid=desktop-studio-xps-9000&s=dhs&cs=19

I went with the middle deal. The 2nd of 3.

My computer runs super fast. Never any internet problems because of my fast connection. Never any lag problems on desktop. I run AION: Tower of Eternity which specs are very high graphics/memory etc. demanding.

The game I am trying to run, Combat Arms, which is a very low graphics/memory etc. demanding game, has small lag, and unsmooth gameplay. My old gateway ran this game with no problems even with it's low specs.

I don't know why my brand new computer lags on such a crappy game? Is it because it is vista sp2? The game is online only, which might help you guys help me.
Sorry for the long read, and thanks!

Hi,

It's probably your power supply being too weak. Please have a look at the label on the PSU and see what it says about amps on the +12V rail(s). Also, please download and run Speedfan (link in my signature) - post back with a screenshot.

Guess who's back...

Hello and welcome to TSF.

They definitely appear to be video-related. Bugchecks 0x116, 0x50 and 0x124. nvlddmkm.sys appears multiple times as the probable cause, which is an NVIDIA video driver. Are you over or underclocking the card? If not, then I agree with you: it could be the power supply, or maybe just a BIOS setting issue.

It seems completely random, but my computer locks up in the middle of a game or watching a dvd. Sometimes it's good for hours on end, and sometimes it won't last 10 mintes from startup.

I am currently running:
Windows XP Pro
1gb PC3200 Kingston Valueram
AMD Athlon 64 3200+
120 GB Seagate HDD
Pioneer DVD Rom
NVidia GeForce 5500 128MB
SoundBlaster Audigy 2
I defragged the hard drive earlier today, restarted, and ran Counter-Strike immediately after. It locked up about 5 minutes into the game. It doesn't give me any sort of BSOD, no error log that I know of, and can only be restarted by pressing the Reset button.

A:My Computer freezes with every game

Check for CPU and/or Video chip cooling fans. If those are present ut not running, your system will overheat quickly. As you specifically indicate games, I'd check the videocard's fan chip first. Aso, excessive dust buildup may block sufficient airflow.

The first thought that comes to my mind is that it's a memory problem. Try running MemTest, it's a boot CD that thoroughly tests your memory for problems.

When I try to play a game the computer will either freeze or the monitor will just go black. The light on the monitor will start blinking green, or the monitor test will come up saying the monitor is working properly, but has been disconnected. I am using Win XP Pro. I have replaced the hard drive, try different monitors and video cards. I currently have a cd rw and dvd rw drives, I have disconnected both from the cable and just connected one at a time and it doesn't help. I have no idea what is wrong, I am thinking it could be the motherboard. I need help.

A:Computer freezes when i try to download a game

Hi Vancity99.

Test the HDD using Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for Windows. Take bot hte short test and the extended test.

If it is passed, it will be the best and easiest for you to resolve all the possible errors in a single go is to perform a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 using a SP1 disc, and make the installation driver complete itself as guided in the guide.

Because, the issue is storage related; and if the physical storage drive is good, the issue will be with the controller. Here it controller is NVIDIA nForce Serial ATA Controller which is not possible to find updates. So it is best to have a clean install with the windows system native drivers those does not fail.

A:Computer freezes when playing a game

please go into your BIOS and post your voltages and temps.

Whilst you have a high wattage power supply it is a very low quality power supply so this could be a suspect.

There is no need for more than 4GB RAM unless you do high end video editing or use photoshop or virtual machines plus if your ddr3 is suppossed to all be matched then it may be that it is all supposed to be installed to work correctly.

I recently downloaded Portal 2 and it worked fine (a small FPS issue but its fine). But now every time I play a level, it basicly crashes and brings my laptop with it.
When I load up a level, it makes my screen blink on and off, and it a notification says that the display driver has stopped working.

I am running windows 10, on a DELL Latitude e6400 laptop. I have 150 gigs, and 111 gigs used.:/
 

A:Game crashes and freezes up my computer... Please Help!

My guess right off the bat.... It's incompatible with Windows 10.

You are trying to run a older game which was compatible with xp so most likely won't play well with 64bit OS which I'm guessing your windows 10 is?

You may try compatibility mode, if windows 10 has it.

I have a game called Journeyman Project 3: Legacy of time on a 750 Mhz AMD-Thunderbird computer with DirectX 8.0a installed. However, usually within 60 seconds of playing the game, the computer freezes. It did that before I installed DirectX 8.0a (yesterday) and after. Does anybody have any ideas?? I just played Riven for countless hours without having any problems.

The video card is a Guillemot Xentor 32 Mb TNT 2AG. I have never been able to play for more than about a minute. Even the demo included in the Riven package did that.

Thanks.

A:Computer freezes when playing a game

Sounds like a video card problem. Since it was running fine bfore my guess is either you have some dust accumulated in your card or the fan (if it has one) is not working so the processor is over heating and locking up. Take off your cover and look for dust...blow it out as best you can with canned air or a compressor then if you have a fan turn your machine on with the cover still off and watch the fan to see if it starts. If it doesn't start with your desktop screen go ahead and start a game...go to spectator mode and watch the fan. If it still doesnt start you may need a new card or fashion an aftermarket fan to cool the processor. Goodluck

So my computer recently started to do this: When I have a game going, after a while the computer will freeze for a couple of seconds, then the monitors turn black (i have two monitors) for a second and start again, but then the game hangs. I play games that are a bit demanding for example World of Warcraft.
What can be the problem here? Can it be that my CPU is too warm?

I am trying to install Spore and in the middle of the installation it gives me a CRC Error! I think it's either the CDROM Drive or a bad spot on the hardisk because other new games will install fine. No scratches on disk and a used CDROM?

HELP!! This is frustrating!
Thank you!

A:CRC Erorr message installing brand new Game

CRC is a mean of verifying the integrity of the data. The content of the data that's written on the drive is compared to a reference data. Could be an error on the CD, with the CD drive or on the hard drive but an overheating cpu or a failing ram stick can also cause read/write errors.

See if you can install the game on another computer to check whether it's the CD or your computer that's in cause. If it installs fine on another computer come back and report here.

Hey everyone! I have just finished a new game. It's browser-based and probably worth a few minutes of your time since I've spent the past few years designing, programming, and updating it. I like to think that it is original but, as we all know, there's none of that under the sun.

Short description of the game:
Crime Factory is a browser-based role-playing game. You take control of a player and earn money in various legal and illegal ways while gaining fame and developing your skills.

Game address: http://playcrime.net?a=20

Please try it out and let me know, what you think about it. ​

Hi,

I have a client who has a brand new PC running Windows XP and Trend 2006 as AV Software. The PC was purchased around August last year, and around November it started freezing up 3 to 4 times a day. When it does so, the power button has to be held down to restart, and the HDD light is light constantly. I intially tried a lot of different things, such as virus scans, hijack this, Anti Spyware etc etc. All of which found nothing. I eventually re-installed XP...PROBLEM FIXED!

Or so I thought, it is now roughly 3 months later, and exactly the same thing is happening. I have now ran some HDD tests and RAM tests which both showed nothing. I dont really want to rebuild again, as I think the same thing will happen again...

Anybody have any ideas??

The other disgusting problem is that, at times, the computer goes off unceremonously whiles working. This also happens at least once in a day.

Sounds like a build up of heat, the most common cause of 'freezing' try running with the case side off and see if there is improvement, if there is you need to add more cooling, making sure your current fans are working properly and are clear of fluff and muck can improve cooling performance dramatically especially the CPU fan and heatsink.

A:Brand new build, but freezes when strained

You never mentioned PSU, that processor draws a lot of power (200W +) specially in turbo mode, R9 200 series, if it's 280, it draws a lot of power too, Next thing would be CPU temperatures, it's a HOT CPU, it deserves good water cooling for any practical purpose. As far as ram goes, 936 *2= 1872 so it's actually 1886 MHz memory, 2133 MHz would be overclocking and needs higher voltage than on standard frequency.
I would start with minimum manual settings for everything, no auto boost or power savings in BIOS, do some tests and than up components one by one by few MHz and keep tabs on temperatures and voltages.

Hi,
I have just purchased a new Toshiba Satellite C850, everything is working perfectly however, there is one thing which gets annoying...

The pointer keeps freezing once I start using it, i.e. I can click to open an app and the cursor will freeze for a few seconds before allowing me to use it. Or, once I touch the touchpad to move the cursor it wont move for a few seconds before it allows me to continue.

Even while I'm typing, I try to move to an area to select but the cursor wont move for about a second. It does this every time.

Does anyone know why this could be happening and how it can be fixed?

Thank you

A:Pointer freezes on brand new Satellite C850

Have you noticed heavy HDD activity when this happen (HDD LED is blinking)?
Maybe some activity in the background slows down notebook?s performance.

It can be Windows updates installation or something similar.
Do you use original Antivirus application that you got with your notebook or some other favourite application?

It worked great for about a day but now it will freeze and loop the last sound played extremely often and I have no idea what the problem is. It dosn't matter what im doing, weather it be playing a high graphics rpg or simply browsing the web. Everything locks up. It will even freeze before the OS has loaded. (problem at bios level?) I know its not a temperature problem because the pc never is: A on for very long before it happens, B hot when it happens, and my alarm never goes off. When i got the system i did a fresh install of windows 7. Can any one tell me wahts going on?

After completing the fresh install, did you make sure to update drivers for all your components? Your system sounds built, so I would recommend going into the device manager and looking at your components to make sure all drivers are up to date. I would also do google searches on driver updates for your components, even if the properties tab shows the driver to be the most recent.

Check your sound drivers especially, since you seem to have a sound issue.

A:BRAND NEW AND FREEZES!! HP Pavilion 15-n211dx Notebook PC

Hello jjoakim,Welcome to the HP Forums!I'm sorry to hear about the frustrating experience. Luckily, with your notebook being so new, it is probably still covered under warranty. If there are hardware issues, your manufacturer's warranty should cover any required servicing.The specs show that you should have received a 750GB hard drive. Can you confirm this? I have included the document 'How To Access Disk Management in Windows 8 & 8.1'. As the drive is most likely partitioned, you will want to use Disk Management to assess the full size.Do you get the error message regarding the hard drive is completely full, while you are working with your photos? The reason that I do ask, is it does sound like an out of control swap file could cause this error.If there is a problem with the hard drive, use this method 'Testing a Hard Disk from the BIOS' to test your hard drive. If for some reason it does come back with a failure, please let me know the exact failure code.I have also included a few standard troubleshooting documents for you to go through, to ensure all the basics have been done.'Computer Locks Up or Freezes in Windows 8''Improving System Performance without Adding Memory (Windows 8)''Windows 8 keeps slows down to 100% disk usage and hangs.'.Looking forward to working with you.

Hi TBear,
A few things:

Did you install the Sata Drivers when you installed WinXP?

Check your RAM sticks try them in slots A1 & B1 or even just one in A1 then you can install the others once Windows is installed.

Clear your CMOS, set your bios to default and set your boot device to either CD or Hard Drive, see if it works or try to re-install WinXP.

Don't give up, I had a little hard time setting up mine... Suddenly, WinXP just installed very smoothly.

I have a brand new laptop (2 weeks old) that randomly freezes for as long as a minute in which nothing works. I have 8gb of ram and a 4th gen Intel processor so I can't imagine why this would happen. At first I was afraid of malware/spyware and was helped out on another forum in which it was determined my machine should be clean. They have directed me here now. The computer is virtually empty. I haven't transferred any of my old files from my previous pc over. 
 
The freezing happens randomly, generally while online. Chrome will indicate that it's waiting for the cache.It is not however specific to Chrome, happens with firefox and IE too. Sometimes I will be in Microsoft Word and it will freeze. We did hard disk checks and everything showed fine. 
 
Any help you can offer is appreciated. Thanks so much in advance!

I have updated my sound drivers, updated my DirectX. It's like something eats up my ram or my soundcard is causing it. And when everything gets slow I quit the game and windows is then also very very slow. And sometimes my soundcard crashes, giving a loud beep sound. It's driving me NUTS.

what OS u on? and unless you know what ur doing I HIGHLY advise you dont mess with the operating system. Reinstalling should be fine and will probably fix the problem as it looks like your other games can run so there is no problem with running games in general. You could check to make sure your CPU and Video card meet the minimum requirements for the game. They may be on the edge of working for the game and can only run it for a bit before crashing.

A:PC Freezes After Every Game

It sounds like thermal problems, especially if you have to wait several minutes before it'll restart.
One thing to try that will help point to a software or hardware resolution is to turn off all unnecessary functions, then play your game. Which OS are you running? There are different methods for turning off unnecessary programs.
CCleaner is a free utility that gives you an easy way to turn stuff off. Once you've downloaded CCleaner, go to "Tools" > "Startup" and turn off unnecessary programs. What's unnecessary? That's a tougher question, one you'll have to research, or copy>paste the whole list into a post and see what sort of feedback you get. Your PC may be wading thru dozens of programs that are running in the background. Although generally too many programs running will result in games stuttering, not the PC crashing.
Do you have a Dell? If so, you're out of luck. If not, d/l & install SensorsView, Everest, or Speedfan, then find out what your temps are. Let us see what you've got.

How can I check what's the graphics card, and generally how can I stop the game from freezing up? It does so randomly and often, and I have to restart. I tried reducing hardware speed and resolution but that only makes it look crappy and doesn't help at all. Also my monitor's on 60hz.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

My problem is that when i play games lets say about 5 minutes or so my computer goes into a black screen and it FREEZES. When i have to hold the power button down to turn it off...

Here are my computer Specs.

I have Windows 7. Please help me with this issue. Thanks in Advance.

A:Game Freezes

This is a tricky problem to diagnose.

First - the possibility of a faulty graphics card. Run the following test for however long it normally takes for the computer to freeze and see if it does it.

Quote:




FurMark - Instructions:

Download from here: http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/
- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test




Also, faulty RAM could cause it too - run a memtest

Quote:




Memtest86+ - Instructions:

Download the ISO (or the .exe for USB drives) from here http://www.memtest.org/#downiso

Then (if you have chosen the ISO) burn the ISO using IsoRecorder: ISO Recorder v3 Download (How to use IsoRecorder)

Boot from the CD/USB and run the test (at least 7 passes)




If both of those do not show any problems - then follow these instructions as we will need more info - http://www.techsupportforum.com/f217...ml#post2545708

THE GAMES EITHER DONT PLAY, FREEZE OR THE BLUE WINDOWS ERROR PAGE APPEARS. I AM AWARE THAT THIS IS COMON WITH TOTAL WAR GAMES BUT NOT COUNTERSTRIKE. I TRIED TO CHANGE THE AGP APERTURE SIZE (WHICH I'VE BEEN TOLD IS A POSSIBLE CURE) BUT MY BIOS DOES NOT HAVE ANY SETTINGS TO DO SO AND COMPAQ ADV ME THAT IT CANT BE DONE. I HAVE A COMPAQ PRESARIO 5000 WITH A VIA CHIPSET MOBO RUNNING WINDOWS98SE. ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREAT BECAUSE I'M AT AND END HERE!!

MANY THANKS

new at this and trying to play Ages of Empires 3 and game freezes up stating that the computer gaming card or what ever may not support it yet its a new computer HP Pavilion a1125c Media Center PC but cant seem to find out where the "video card or gaming card" is or how much it has in it they told us it was strong enough to play all games but still we dont know we are computer retards so anyone? can you help us figure it out
 

A:game freezes

This may be an issue. Since those Pavilions use integrated video, if your system only came with 512MB of ram and you are trying to use 128mb Video mode, then you will have insufficient memory. If you are only using 64 mb mode on your video card, then the game may not play properly. If you are completely unsure about what I am saying, please give me a moment as one of the easiest programs I use to help people was just discontinued a week or so ago :-/

Did a fresh install of Windows 7 RC (ultimate) 64-bit. I updated my
VGA drivers, and I think I updated my sound drivers as well.

However I keep on getting computer freezes when I run world of warcraft.

These freezes are random, and usually occur during 1hr - 2hrs of gameplay.

Is it possible it's windows 7 related, or do i need to update all my drivers?

I'm running an Asus G1s-X1 model.

A:Game freezes during load

A file may have become corrupt somehow, I would first try doing a complete reinstall of the game, and then applying any patches which may be available for the expansion that you have.

If that doesn't work post back

Hey,

When i play games on my computer it works just fine with the highest settings possible, for like 10 seconds and then i starts to freeze and unfreeze.
If i play 10 seconds it freezes for 5 seconds, then is unfreezes and then freezes again. What is wrong?? I have updated my drivers and im using MSI Live Update everytime theres a new update..

Oh, and i have tried lower resolution and settings, so that is not the problem.
 

A:My game freezes with NX6800GT

Go HERE and then enter your full system specs in your user profile at the top of any page (click on edit profile)

Download and run Memtest86+ from www.memtest.org let it run for at least 7 passes. If you don`t have a floppy drive, there is an iso version that you can burn to cd, and then boot from that.

Also what psu do you have?

Regards Howard

info
Windows xp with ati Radeon x300 se 128 Mb and DirectX 9.0- Premium 4

Things i have tried are going to task mgr and ending owners Processes for more space. i also tried lowering the game performance levels to low and reinstalling the game. I have also change the resolution; plus check the CD and the computer (new) for problems.
When i am playing the game maybe 10 to 15 mins into the game it freezes and the sound keeps playing. It does not slow down and I have no problems starting the game. A few times i have played the game for one hour but that is rare.

Is their any hope or should i just sell the game and move on.
