BIG annoying problem - Games freezing

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Ok well one problem WITH the problem im having is that i dont know excatlly when it started. But here it is:

I was playing BF2 with my friends when i noticed all the sudden my PC froze, the clock on my G15 keyboard stopped at whatever time it was and everything was at a stand still. At the time this first started i had been using Vent, BF2 and joined through Xfire. Ive tried while not on xfire, and not on vent, but everytime i play a game everything freezes up until i can some how get back to desktop (usually Atl+Tab or Ctrl+Alt+Delete and/ or a mixture of the two) but even those take 5min to get me OUT of the game. This is really frustrating and making me very angry that i cant play games for 5min without a crash. What could be causing this problem? Ive tried to System restore but it doesnt help! Someone please help me get to the bottom of this

K sorry im kinda new. And it happens only DURING games. And the time varies, its usually from 5min - 45min but i dont think ive played longer than 45min without a glitch.

I recently tried to overclock my Video card, could the problem be that the clocks i have it at are too much for the card to handle?

First thing to do is re-install the latest video card drivers.
Next, back off the overclocks you've got, and see if you get trouble at stock level. If you don't, then it suggests the OC you had wasn't good - try it again but slowly

It is your video card's overclock. The reason the computer freezes is because you have clocks that are unstable and when the card reaches a certain load it will stop responding for a short while which causes the Windows driver to crash and in turn freeze your computer sometimes temporarily or sometimes permanently as a result of a loop of temporary freezes.
