Depending on what "SF" (which ever game that may be) requires you may want to make sure that if you are a windows user then to make sure you have the most up to date drivers for your video card and make sure you have sufficient amount of ram installed as well as video card requirements on your computer. most games these days games require a good hand full of resources such as call of duty 4? or crysis? half life 2, fear, any MMORPG games etc so make sure your computer has enough resources to run this game you speak of and make sure your not tying up other usefull resources on background applications you are running by either closing them or bringing task manager up and closing them that way (personaly i prefer task manager because it shows you what and which apps are using all your resources) make sure also that your DX (Direct X) is the most up to date (dumb comment but you would be amazed on how many users complain because they say everything is up to date but later to see that they have direct x 9 ver "B" installed rather then version "C" so please make sure drivers, software, game updates (if available) DX9 update and requirements such as ram, video card, video card ram are even suffient enough for that game to run smooth

My system fails, when any game is run on it. and it hangs also.


This might be a VGA problem, but there is more chance for it to be a RAM problem.
Sometimes one of the chips in the middle fails. When the computer is idling running a normal program the computer uses the RAM card, but not the memory in the defective chip.
When you play a game the computer will want more memory. Probably all the chips in the RAM are used. When computer tries to use the memory in defective chip, computer will fail.
Here are solutions:
If you have two ram cards, remove one and play a somewhat small game. It the computer hangs, try using with only the other RAM installed. You may be able to locate the defective RAM card.
Find an Ubuntu CD and boot the from it. After few minutes, when it asks you to select a language, press 'Escape' button. Select 'Memory Test' from the menu and press 'Enter'.
The progress of the memory test will be shown on top area of the screen. If memory is defective, you will see some technical information below in RED color.
If no RAM seems to be defective, the problem might be with your VGA.

Hanging problem


  1. Dirt and clogged fans vents and Heatsinks - When your CPU overheats it will either slowdown to a crawl then hang before shutting down.
  2. Virus and Spyware infection - These nasties tend to run processes that will either slowdown your PC will hang if you run out of resources.
  3. Heavily fragmented drive - throughout the time that your PC is running every time you access a file it tends to settle in a different location than where it originally was. fragmented files launch slower if you run out of resources while the file is launching PC will freeze.
  4. Too many programs running at once or too many startup items are loading in your taskbar. - Startup programs run continously while PC is on leaving you with little to barely enough resources to work with.
  5. Insufficient Memory,CPU or Hard Drive capacity - these three are the heart and soul of your computer they need breathing rooms so their capacities dont get exhausted by normal PC usage.
  6. Failing hardware components and faulty hard drive. - When your PC runs out of memory room it uses the spare space in your hard drive it's called the Page File. If your hard drive is faulty your PC will have problems accessing the Page File it will then Hang.
These are the most common causes of hanging.

My pc keeps restarting everytime i play online game or lan game


Most often restarts during games or other heavy duty tasks are from the following reasons

1.) Lack of power. If your Power supply unit is less than 450W then this is highly likely.
2.) Overheating. If your PC's bios has temperature reading sensors then after it is warmed up open the BIOS by press <Delete> after the logo disappears and go to the entry that informs you of temperature... If your seeing a Temp ove 45-50 degrees Celcius your runnin too hot. Get a better heatsink or other cooling apparatus (ie... liquid cooling or peltier) depending on your budget and your technical skill.
3.) Video card over heating/power issues run the PC with the cover off. Watch your Video card. is the Fan on it spinning? Does you Video card have a seperate power adapter? If so is it Fully seated.
4.) Mismatched memory. the memory adapter you installed does it have the same specifications as other memory that is also in your system. Sometimes if their slightly off and the computer sets the timing for the faster memory instead of the slower memory then the system chugs along at a speed that the slow module cant handle and it fails momentarily.
5.) Driver conflict error. Sometimes an older driver just gets in the way of other devices that want the same resources. (Particularly if you are using the drivers that came with the Video card) Go to Nvidia's website download and install the latest drivers for your card and Operating system combination.

Hopefully these tips will help you get you Fragging in no time.
Good gaming
and godbless

Coputer hang and restart again


it may be that you do not have enough memory to play that game (or others) and it is trying to use virtual memory (your hard drive) but it also does not have the space , this is probably the sound you hear, the hard drive thrashing
removal all programs, pics songs etc that you do not need, maybe burn to disc,also empty recycle bin & remove cookies in IE ,then defragment your hard drive and try playing the game.

it maybe that your hard drive is about to die so backup any important data.

good luck

ASUS A7V8X hangs @ splash screen


Just because an installation may hang does not mean the board is dead. If possible I would connect the hard drive into another PC and check for a virus. While in another pc you can remove important data from the drive & copy to a CD/DVD. Than download the drives Mfg's drive software setup program that will run in Dos mode from a diskett. Reformat the drive and install a fresh copy of windows. You might find that is the only problem. Xp does not always install correctly. There may be a software or hard ware making windows hang.
