computer just shuts off damn....
Posted on 2001-06-06
i did a clean install of win98 on an amd400 256ram 32meg agp video sound blaster live value...
i install gore (a multiplayer online game) and when i launch the game, the computer goes black, and there is a piercing beep coming out of the speakers. "beeeeeeeeep" is the way i would describe it i guess... ctrl-alt-del dosnt work. i have to hit the reset button. i reinstalled windows after the problem originated (thinking that would fix it) but still, same problem.
so im thinking i fried something mebbe in the video card's 3d somthingorother, and when it wants to go into 3d mode for games is poops out. can anyone offer any suggestions and /or possible diagnostic ideas that can help me get playing gore again? i would really appriciate it. (and so would my wife, she;s getting sick of me using her 'puter)
ps all my hardware has current drivers
