Yeah yo, umm yeh im having 2 probs wid XP Pro .. gaming wise.

GTA3
****
I install, fine , i run game fine .. until 30 seconds into the beginning of the game it leaves the game asif i had done a alt+f4 .. does it very randomly, but ive never lasted in the game longer then 2 mins.

Ive:
Applyed XP Patch, I can see menu's
Copied CD2 to HDD
Tryed running in all OS compatabily modes..

ok next.

Counter-Strike
************
Its like it takes a screenshot.. the games still running, i still
hear the sounds but im looking at a screenshot.
Pushing esc and resuming fixes this.. but as you probably know .. im dead when i return into the game.

This happens very rarely in CS .. but id still rathr it not happen @ all.

Ok guys anyone that can help would be much appreciated.

Im not sure what card you have ...

but i had similar issues , so i went into the bios and turned the AGP aperature size down to 2X

and that did the trick , there is also an AMD agp patch on the frontpage here if you have a AMD chip

Is your computer overclocked?.. overclocking can cause those such oddities in games.

Also check your BIOS memory timings.

Try the latest display drivers for your graphics card, and if its overclocked again unclock it.

what version of Nvidia driver you using? Have you run DXdiag to see if there are any old drivers lurking around causing problems?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
