Hi,

I dont suppose you could be a little more detailed and specific about your graphics card so we can look for known problems?

Its probably a driver or a bios problem. Possibly an overheating issue, but we dont have enough information to giveyou an answer...just guesses.

Cheers,
Tim.

It 's not the video card but if u think it would help you it's a Hercules 3D Prophet 4000xt 64MB of onboard SDRAM, AMD Athlon
700MHTZ, 192 MB SDRAM, winxp,if you whant more specific let me know!
I just tought that the kind of vido wasn't necesary if it's "probably a driver or a bios problem. Possibly an overheating issue" personally I think it's more software related!
As I mentioned before I've encouter that same problem on different systems and os's, my computer works good with the exeption of the 3D game! any sugestions?

Hi,

Yep, I've occasionally had similar problems. With Unreal Tournament - it just quits suddenly with no apparent reason.

Fortunately for me its very rare - maybe once every few months.

The 3d game you're running isn't "Superbike 2001 Kyro"is it? There's a patch available specifically for that one.

(remove spaces from above URL)

Even if its not Make sure you're running with the latest drivers for all your cards. Especially the video card...

(remove spaces...)

Also you should update your BIOS with the latest version too.

Are the crashes frequent?

Cheers,
Tim.

Hello Tim, the game it's called Medal of Honor by EA sports, U know I tried all I could think of, and I could not pinpoint the problem, I resolved it by re-installing Windows, the long way but it is working now,I installed a program "Config Maker" that caused same kind of sofware conflict, that's the only thing I can think of, but thanks any way!
