From what you describe it sounds like that the computer is overheating when you start a game. Here are some links with pictures to show you how to clean out your computer. How to Clean the Inside of Computer : Desktop
The issue is the card is overheating you can take the card out and ensure that its clean and if nothing seems to work you will have to replace the card this is a common issue with this card. Most of the time you can remove the fan cover on the video card and clean the dust out of it and it will work.
Usually this happens when the computer is compatible to run the game but not compatible to keep it playing,,, meaning that the computer can execute the game (get it started) but fails to keep it going. The cause of this problem is the graphics adapter so a new graphics card will solve this problem, and remember when buying a graphics card make sure you buy one that is better than the one the game requires.
well if you' ve seen frequent flickering in your screen this is the sign of there's problem on your video card and sometimes at the middle of game or doing work at computer you will be hang,try to clean your video card it could be keep your screen smooth and recover the quality of graphics,how to clean your video card, unplug power supply unit, open your pc cover,disconnect vga cable from video card,pull out your video card,scrub the multi slotted terminal by eraser head of pencil both side,then put it back video card and vga connection,if the screen has good quality after cleaning and persist again the symton of flickering,replace your video card.have a nice day,rate my fix,thank a lot.
adcg, the world of war craft is played online through servers, not just on your computer. the version is needed to see if there are issues with your video card, Do you have XP home or XP pro? you have more than 1 mb of ram at this point I am going to say that you have issues with the video card take it back and get an ATI to replace it, they are better and have less issues. you could also be having an overheat problem with the CPU and that means you need a new heat sink and fan assembly to keep the CPU cooler when you are running this game. That is about all the help I can give you , my advice is to take the computer to a service center and have them look at the CPU heat sink and fan assembly to see if it is working properly. hope this helps
the only time my computer kept restarting in gameplay i thought it was a directx issue or graphics card driver issue, it actually turned out to be an out of date soundcard driver that was causing mine to crash. Have you check every driver is up to date?
Your graphics card might be going bad. The GPU might be getting too hot. Power down the machine, open the computer case and inspect the graphics card. If your graphic card has a fan, is it covered in dust. Get some of those compressed air cans from walmart or any other store, and blow out the dust.
If you still have a warranty on the PC, don't open the case, this may void your warranty. Since you are posting here, I will assume you don't have one, so go nuts with the Air cans.
Also you might have caused too much damage, and might need to get a new graphic card, but try the air cans first.
