    Hey Guys, i think its dod 3.0 , or whatever, the latest dod. either way, when i play, my comp freezes like every 5 min of play. and its getting REALLY annoying. 1st i thoughti t was my ram and i upgraded it. but it keeps doing it. if anyone nkows what to do, please tell me.


    AMD Athlon 1.2 ghz - cPU
    AOPEN AK 74 Pro(A) - Motherboard
    NVidia GeForce2 MX 400 (32 mb) - Video Card (Latest Driver)
    512 MB Ram - All Diff Comps

    i think thats all that really affects it. I have the latest drivers for all the cards. the only extra card i have is SoundBlaster Live! XGamer and a Ethernet Card.

    i think its over heating and you should remove your case for ventilation. i had that problem when playing games, it force my computer to reboot. after i remove that case my computer is run smooth without problem.

    fossil that sounds similar to something that happaned to me before i reformated my computer. mine would auto-reboot when i was choosing a different server. i might have set a compatibility mode for half-life, but half life works fine (for me) on XP now. i doubt mine was a heating problem.

    i never had my comp re-boot while in gameplay though, thats a first.

    i suggest taking off the compatibility mode, getting cheating death, and latest drivers for me crummy video card. after all, dats what worked for me.
