Solved All Computer Games fail after 10 minutes of playing.

Post by AnarchyLives on Fri Mar 27, 2009 12:33 am

Hi GeekPolice, I was referred here by a friend because I have a very strange problem at hand. Every time I run any PC games, the whole system locks up after about 10 minutes of play, or sitting in the menus.

Here are my specs:
OS: Windows XP Pro 32-bit SP3
CPU: AMD Athlon X2 6000+ 3.1GHz
RAM: Patriot 2GB low-latency ram (2 x 1GB)
Graphics card: EVGA 9800 GT Akimbo 512mb GDDR3 PCIe-2.0
Motherboard: Asus M3A78-EM
PSU: Corsair TX650

I recently replaced the power supply thinking that it was the problem, but unfortunately, it wasn't. So here I am, only able to run the desktop, without a solution to my problem. I hope you guys can fix this crippling situation.

I have updated all my Drivers, I've installed the AMD Dual Core Optimizer as well which worked for a little bit, but I still BSOD in Age of Empires III

Do you have the error code of the BSOD? For example 0x0000000A.

When I put in the password, the window just flashes and it stays at the same file.

Update!:

I fixed the problem. It was my RAM, I replaced it with the sticks that came with the PC when I bought it and I could play games again. Thanks for the help Dr. Inferno, I appreciate it!
