Chopppy video / sound in parts of games

Hi, Here's my problem , In most video games (Bioshock, Call of Duty 4, even Older games like Return to Castle Wolfenstien) in some parts I get the game will freeze just for a second or two and the sound and video skipping it's very annoying, I have a Decent Gaming Case (Antec #9) with 7 fans so I know heat isn't the issue)

ASUS M2N-MX SE AMD AM2 Socket AM2 1000 MHz PC2-6400 (DDR2-800) ATX

If you have played any games in the interim - there are automatic software and hardware updates that occur.

Perhaps an update made a change to the sound driver so the older game is not communicating properly.

My laptop freezes when i try to play games


Does your system meets the minimum requirements for those game? If yes and if you don't play games and your system hangs too, do you get a blue screen with error codes on it? (e.g. 0x0000000E), if so it could possibly be a possible driver conflict and/or a hardware problem. Try running this at a command prompt, if your on vista run it as administrator (start > all programs > accessories > command prompt > right click > run as administrator), then on the black box, type /sfc scannow. Works on XP/Vista. It should fix any corrupt system files. Try also updating the drivers for your video card and try running Everest, a free diagnostic & benchmark tool, you can find it here.

Hope this helps.

Can't use game pad on new game


It may not be compadible with bioshock. I had the same experience had to return the game pad. I only paid 10 dollars for my game pad, goes to show you get what you pay for. Invest in something more expensive, it will pay out in the long run.
