|About 3 weeks ago I started having problems with video games. The problem is they all freeze up on me. Either the screen will freeze, or the monitor will go crazy with various colours and then it'll freeze.|
I have no idea about source of the problem. I tried re-installing my OS, upgrading to all the latest drivers, etc....ending all processes before playing, but nothing helps.
I have an:
ati 9800 pro 128
ecs miro-atx m925 MOBO with celeron 2.6
250 power supply
40gb HD+120gb HD (ata of course)
1gb-1x512 elixir-1x512-corsair RAM
Creative labs audigy 2 value
I turned paging off
I tried everythign I can think of. I even tried disabling my 2nd HD, and DVD drive thinking it was a power issue. I also played around with the ati control panel, going from best performance to best quality video.
Does anyone have any ideas? Is it possible I somehow damaged my video card when I touched it to whipe off some dust? Or is the MOBO damaged somehow? I always put on my grounding strap when I open up the case and I never wear a wool sweater.
I'd appreciate any help,
