hi this does sound like your graphics card has a conflict with another device, your best bet would be to go to the site of your graphics card manufacturer and download the latest drivers for your card, un-install ( actually delete ) the graphics card from the system, ie...add and remove programs, look for drivers for your graphics card, then remove, also go to your device manager and delete it from the hardware so there is no trace of it ( don't worry it will still work it will just default to minimal settings on re-boot) re-boot the system, if it says found new hardware and tries to install your card click no you don't want to install it, then find where you downloaded the drivers and install them and then that should stop the blue screens, games..this also could be the sound card has a conflict with something, as i know allot of games just crash to the desktop for this reason, try doing the same for the sound card, download, remove and install, as above...any more probs just reply and i will see what else there is, if you can also post the blue screen error on here to will be helpful as you can determine what the cause is...hope this helps
Carefully wriggle wires on the back of the PC, one at a time. A card (like video) could be loose. Also, make sure the heatsink/fan is clean, and running. It might be time to reinstall your operating system (I bet it is microsft). If you have another HD, you could install windows on it in your sys, and see what happens.
Hi, in this case that your computer don't have any display and beeping sounds you can try the following steps to repair it.
1. Turn off your PC, then open the side panel of your PC case 2. Look for the memory RAM, maybe DDR/DDR2 then remove it. 3 Clean the DIMM socket and your memory card then plug it in 4. Now that you plug it in, turn on you PC, if it doesn't solve the problem try this next step. 5. Leave the memory on the DIMM socket and look for the Video card, unscrew and then clean the video card as well as the AGP/PCI-E port (sometimes it's just the dust that causing it) then plug it in again, then turn on your PC 6. If the step still doesn't solve the problem, then you have to replace your RAM or your Video Card (borrow to your friend RAM/VGA for testing which one causing the problem) either of the two is causing the problem. 7. Be sure also to check if there is power in your PC 8. Check for the PSU fan if running.
Your problem is very common with old computer.
The reason might be humidity or dust.
Please consider taking your m/b out of the case and the rest of the components (like video card and memory simms) and with a brush dipped in alcohol clean the whole m/b everywhere you can (both sides) scrub it hard especially places you see dust or rust.
I use it all the time although I have to say you need to do it at your own risk.
Good luck and thank you for using agadycom.
Hi Chileno, I'm andrew Zaldivar and hope dis works to your problem. But first I'm gonna ask you, what are the specs of your computer? then try this one.I suggest try to clean the gold pin in your ram and video card by using a eraser. Goto Bios Setting set to default all setting to optimized your computer Feel free to ask question for further assistant.
IT seems no problem with your specification, but only one thing less in this criteria. What inch does your monitor? This must be match with the specification of your VGA Card, The more resolution you can get the best performance of this VGA card you can achieve, try to higher the resolution of your monitor , don't only use 1024 x 768 , but try another higher resolution. The VGA itself cannot reduce the system perfomance, because your vga card has GPU (This VGA card has his own processor and memory) just like mini computer inside your main computer.Hope this things can solve your problem, don't forget to vote
Its probably a hardware issue. the video card has dedicated memory so there shouldnt be any problems unless the card is bad. Try removing any extra cards like wireless adapters and expanded firewire cards and sounds card. try running the game wiht just the video card in and see if it still does it. if it doesnt, you know its having conflicts with other hardware, if not, then try removing all the video card software and installing just the drivers without the xtra software. I had similar problems with Two ATI cards, The catalyst software was causiong problems, i removed it but kept the drivers, and all my problems went away.
If the crashes are becoming more often it is probably a processor overheating problem or it's on its way out.
Leave the side of the computer off when its got going and see if it lasts any longer before crashing.
To give you more of a clue as to what is crashing the pc go to My computer>properties>advanced tab>Startup & Recovery Settings>automatically restart; and untick the box.
This will bring up a blue screen next time it crashes to give you a clue to the problem.
PLease rate solution.
