All drivers including bios and 4in1's are completely up to date.
My computer will freeze when I play any game what so ever. It will usually freeze within a few minutes of starting the game, the audio then repeats on an infinite loop and no combination of key strokes will do anything, the only recourse being the reset switch.
This has only started happening after I installed the Geforce 4 card. I know the card works fine because I have installed it and tested it in another machine. I have tried EVERYTHING to get it to work properly, including:-
Re-installing Win XP Pro.
Using progresively older graphics drivers.
Stripping out all unnecessary components.
Buying a 450W PSU.
Disabling ACPI in Win XP.
UNDERclocking the graphics card.
Reseting all bios settings.
And now this is the last thing I can think of save buying a new Motherboard - posting a plee for help in a forum. If you can help me, I will love you forever.
