The following are my computer specs: - Pentium III 800MHz - geForce2 MX400 64MB (with lattest nVIDIA drivers) - 128 RAM - Seagate 40GB (7200rpm) Hard Drive (about 33GB left) - Soundblaster Live 1024 Player I think it's enough for you to try to help me with my problem. My problem is the following: The games that I had this problem are F1 2001 and Operation Flashpoint. As you can see from my specs I can play this games very well, not at the maximum of course, but with nice and playable graphics. But sometimes in the middle of the game, the game stops a litlle and then continues and as you might think when playing like this in F1 2001 after a few miliseconds of stopage time in the gameplay I got out of the track. I wanted to know why this happen in some games. It doesn't matter if I put the graphics to the minimum this will happen anyway. Do you know of any utilities or you know something that can help me? Please tell me. One last thing: When I'm runing this game I have the following programs in the systray: - Go!Zilla 4.1 - Gator - Norton Antivirus 2002 - Norton Personal Firewall 2002 - DirectCD (Easy CD Creator app) - Xnotes (a simple program so I can take notes) - The sound icon - Touch Manager (an app to manage my special keyboard from Trust) Do you think that me having all this apps running is fact? Or is it because the RAM that isn't too much? Please help me. Thanks.
