8600gt randomly freezing ~5-10 minutes music loop

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I don't know why but I keep on getting the same damn error when I play 3D games. I load up my game, play for about 5minutes, then it freezes and the sound keeps looping. This really pisses me off as I just got this computer (my friend built it!).

All the drivers are up to date and everything. Sometimes when it freezes, I can alt tab but then my soundcard ( Realtek HD onboard ) says "A jack has been plugged in" and that stupid thing comes up. I honestly don't know what to do, help!!!

Here is my system.

Windows XP Home OEM
Asus P5K-SE
Intel Core2Duo E6750 @ 2.66GHz
Foxconn 8600GT OC 256MB
2GB Ram
550W Powersupply
320GB Harddrive

Please, please help me! I pray that I am not the only one with this problem.

Update all your drivers... I'd say start with the soundcard and work your way around the bend

What game? Does it use PunkBuster? And if so, are you running ATITool or RivaTuner or any other GPU-OC software?

Get back to me.

already updated all drivers

and it happens for Call of Duty 4 single player only(idk why), counter strike source (rarely), gta san andreas ( almost instant), company of heroes ( almost instant ).. and probably more


"And if so, are you running ATITool or RivaTuner or any other GPU-OC software?"

I'm not sure what any of those are
so no, I am not
