Please post the game which u tried to install and the operating system you use.Or is it a console error? This enables anyone to figure out if there are any known compatability issues b/w the game and the OS.

    Hi... for your information, crysis is a resource intensive game and it takes whatever performance upgrades you throw at it. You may be thinking that your graphic card, the 6600 GT is listed in the "Minimum requirement category" but believe me, i got merely 22-23 frames even though iam using a 7600GT and a dual core processor running at 2ghz with 2gb ram.


    Is your system is crashing only when playing CRYSIS? If so your hardware configuration is not suuficient enough.Also uninstall the game and reinstall in a different directory [different path].


    My sincere advice is that you upgrade your system ASAP because "CRYSIS" is the Most resource intensive game out there in the market. Also download latest nvidia drivers from here for your graphic card.
    And about the e74 error : The error is related to the GPU [graphics processing unit].Its the right time to change the GPU.

Aliens Colonial Marines crashes the PC on start up


Blue screen can mean many different things. Corrupt software, OS, even bad hardware. Start by uninstalling anything that was installed prior to the problem started.

You next options are to do a clean OS install and start over. From there you could start testing for bad memory.

These are tuff, tedious, and time consuming to get fixed. Most people end up wiping the system and starting over. gl

My computer has been shutting down for a couple of weeks now. At first, I thought the memory was defective since it usually only crashes when it is doing a lot of tasks at once or one really memory...


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Sounds like you need a good ol computer cleaning. Here is what I do whenever I come across one that crashes. shuts down, freezes and what not. I clean out a lot of junk files, run scans, and clean the inside of the PC itself. all the unnecessary, temp internet files, and cookies (use disk cleanup, or if you have any other computer maintenance programs with one.) Check for viruses, spyware, malware, adware, and bots. They can run in the background and multiply their processing tasks, therefore hogging all your CPU and RAM and causing these issues. I suggest Spyware Doctor and/or Spyboy S&D, Kaspersky and/or Norton. You can get Spyware doctor for free by downloading it in the google pack (go to google and search google pack), and Spybot S&D is free. Another thing that can be done also is to clean the inside of your PC. You wouldn't believe how bad loads of dust and whatnot can affect a PC. I have taken computers that have had similar problems and opened them up and there was dust CAKED on the Motherboard, RAM, in the plugs, fans, and Hard Drives. I clean all of it out and it work 100% better. Dust can carry static charges and cause shorts in your hard ware, so it is important for best performance to keep your PC clean on the inside and in its files.

Restart


Hi,

Chkdsk is a utility designed to check the integrity of the data on a computer's hard disk drive as well as find and fix errors which could corrupt such data.

Running chkdsk on your Windows XP or 2000 system can repair minor Windows problems

There are several different methods that can be used to run chkdsk
start with this one..... chkdsk c: /p
1. Click the Start button then... Run
2. In the Run window's Open box... type in ... cmd
3. Click OK and an MS-DOS-style black screen will appear in a new window
4. Run chkdsk by typing one of the the following commands where the cursor is blinking...
chkdsk c: /p and then press ...ENTER...

This is a short test that will tell you whether or not a longer test is needed. If after the test is done and a message ...One or more errors detected on the volume... appears then proceed to one of the next options...read them both first

Please let us know if that was helpful enough.
Good Luck & Thanks,
Shiv.

When i am trying to use c++ on my system it is giving me message the NTVDM cpu has encountered an illegal operation


Here is an explanation of what NTVDM is: The NT Virtual DOS Machine (a.k.a WOW, or Windows on Windows), is a Win16 subsystem that runs under Windows NT, which allows 16-bit applications to run as if they were being executed on a DOS machine, with that machine's multitasking and segmented memory model. Because the system is multitasked 16-bit DOS and Windows applications cannot crash NT. However, 16-bit apps within a Win16 subsystem run the exact same way as they do on a DOS/Win 3.x machine; therefore, 16-bit apps within the subsystem can crash one another, or the subsystem. To prevent this, you can launch multiple WOW subsystems as long as your program does not communicate using shared memory. Windows NT will not allow NTVDM to execute instructions that try to directly manipulate hardware or memory locations. As a result, some DOS and Windows 3.x applications (such as games) may not run under Windows NT.
