Computer lock up during games
Posted on 2005-04-11
- Intel Celeron 2.80 Ghz Processor
- PM800-M2 Motherboard by Elitegroup
- 1 GB RAM (ULT3009Z) 2 - 512 MB 333 Mhz DIMMs
- Windows XP
- ATI Radeon 9600XT graphics card
Everything works great until I play computer games (i.e. Warcraft 3). During a game the computer will just lock up and will require a reboot. (ctrl-alt-del does not work)
What I have tried:
I have replaced the graphics card, checked the thermal protection on the CPU, checked CPU seating, RAM check through boot up, checked RAM seating, added an extra case fan. Nothing seems to work.
What has worked:
It seems that if I take out one RAM stick it will work fine. But I have run it with both RAM sticks to check to see if it was the RAM. But with both in it locks up again.
Any suggestions??? Thanks.
