|Hello there. I'm here in the hope that I can find some form of solution to a major problem I've been having with my computer (purchased in November 08). I'm an avid WoW player and multiple times in the day my computer will completely crash and I'll loose everything. The screen will go one solid colour, the colour varies if I'm in Ironforge on WoW when it happens it'll go a light brown/dark orange where as if I'm playing Dust2 on CS, it'll go yellow like the sand. Often when this happens, if there is a sound at the time of crashing such as gun fire on CS, the sound will loop for about 3 or 4 seconds and then go to a screen of whatever colour. It's done this since I pretty much brought it, but at maximum twice in a few weeks... so nothing I really was bothered about.|
When this happens I'm forced to just hold the power button in. This only really happens in game but when it happens, it'll happen again and again and again after about 5minutes of opening up either CS or WoW. My computer specs are: http://www.packardbell.co.uk/produc...
I'm aware that the graphics card is onboard but it should easily be capable of playing WoW smoothly, I'm playing with absoulely everything low too, FPS is not really an issue. I have the latest graphics driver for the card too, updated today. It was doing this prior to updating however.
This problem leads me to believe its graphics related, I'm getting tonnes of errors in the log but I'm not sure they're related to this. If you would like the ones I have gotten today I'd gladly post them.
Any more information you require I'll gladly provide. If you would even like to speak on Ventrilo so I can go into more detail or something, thats possible. I'm very desperate to fix this since its no longer just an annoyance I'm gonna live with.
