I would open up your case and check that all the fans are operating properly. it sounds like a fan is kicking in as something is overheating. Often clearing out dust and improving airflow by cleaning fansa nd ensuring that you have effective cable management.

Why does my tower beep one time during shut down?


If it does not detect an optional sound card or the integrated sound in the motherboard, it will beep rather than play the "Windows shut down" music. This is a normal operation and nothing to fret.

Compaq Evo D510 tower: game compatibility issues


Upgrading the windows version and adding ram and better video card may be a good solution. It couldn' hurt at least.
Try it and see if you can play you games.
Games are the most resourse hungry application that you can put your computer through. The ram size and video card memory size are critical for acceptable preformance.
Thank you and good luck,
James.

Buffer Override Detected


Try starting in safe mode and restore your PC to a date when it was working properly. Then increase the page files allotting it to all partitions, such that its now 3 times that what it was.These page files will be used from your HDD as if it were an extension of RAM. This should prevent any buffer over-run problems that you are facing now....sodeep
PS also clean your C drive if junk files, cookies & stored internet pages(History), defragment your HDD to improve performance.

Lego Island


Older programs will sometimes not work with Vista. This is likely the reason that Lego Island 2 (a 2001 game) will work a opposed to Lego Island (a 1997 game). There are a few things that you can try, though:
  1. Right click the 'play game' icon and select 'Properties'
  2. Click the 'Compatibility' tab at the top of the window
  3. Click the 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' box and select Windows XP or Windows 98/Window ME (you can try another later if one doesn't work)
  4. Make sure that the 'Run this program as an administrator' box is selected.
  5. Click 'OK' and close the window
Give the icon the good ol' double click and see if she works. There's no guarantees that this will work with Vista since it is an older program, but this is where I would start.

I hope this helps!
