Hi redjeans21,
There can be a verity of reasons that can cause you to loose display. I'll list some suggestions you can try that may fix this issue. After each suggestion try the game that freezes the system more often than the others. (If you have never cleaned the inside of your system please do so). Use canned air & blow out the guts of the motherboard & power supply).
First, please make sure your antivirus software is up to date & run a full system scan. If you need a virus scanner you can download & install AVG for free at this link. http://free.avg.com/ww.download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition Once you are sure your system is clean let’s run a test on your system memory. Click on the link below to download memtest86 software. http://memtest.org/
Scroll down the page until you see three monitor snap shots. Download either. (Suggest the floppy software which is the easiest to use). For bootable floppy disk test software download, (Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win). To create bootable CD test software, (Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip). Boot your system with either disk, floppy or CD & test your memory. You'll know if there is a problem & you'll know what you need to do. (Let’s hope its ok).
The integrated VGA video card is not the greatest for playing games. The reason it is not is because the onboard video uses your system memory to function. Part of your 512MB of system memory goes to your video card & windows XP needs all of the 512MB. It's suggested that an XP system run with 1GB. 512MB is still ok. System freezes are more likely caused by software, including registry errors. Download & run this free registry cleaner. http://www.pctuneuptips.com/recommends/clean/?gclid=CL2RiIrTmpICFSFMGgodODIPzg
Restart your system after the cleaner has finished. Next try running windows check disk. Right click once on My Computer & slide to & left click Open. Right click on C: & slide to & left click Properties.
Left click the Tools tab & than click, Check Now... for Error-checking. Your system will restart & run check disk. Lastly, buy an AGP graphics card & disable the onboard video. The MSI KM4M-L motherboard can only run an AGP card that supports 1.5 volts. This link is a 1.5v AGP card:

The card above comes with a 2 year warranty.
More AGP's: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2145957&CatId=318

If nothing above has helped or fixed the freezing issue, I would do a fresh install of windows, including a format of the hard disk drive.

Good luck redjeans21!
Mike

Operating system cannot install


Hello try to download a manual from here:

http://us.msi.com/product/mb/KM4M-L.html#/?div=Manual

Check the bios (boot) settings. Press the delete button when you boot.
First boot device:Cd/dvd and second the harddrive
The hard drive must be set as master (by the jumper)
The cd/dvd drive must be set as slave.
Check also the ide cable for fault.
Does the bios see the drive ???

The drivers are here:

http://us.msi.com/product/mb/KM4M-L.html#/?div=Driver&os=All

Download the drivers for your windows system
All the file must be unziped before you install

Good luck

Looks like your motherboard is a MSI KM4AM-L detailed here:

http://www.msicomputer.co.uk/index.php?func=proddesc&prod_no=572&maincat_no=1

If so, then it has an AGP slot which will run at 4x and 8x.

Remember to check the BIOS settings after you install it to make sure it is set to 8x, if that is what your card will take.

KM4M-L and graphics cards/memory queries


I would hate to burst the bubble but if you buy any DDR2 memory, then you will be wasting your money.
This motherboard only supports standard DDR upto 333mhz and only 2gig max of that.

Video card wise, then an ATI 9800 Pro can be had cheaply or an nVidia 6800 AGP version can be purchased new.

Hope it helps =)
