Just like the X box the heat transfer emulsion on the chips to heat sink wears out, dries out, flakes off, and cannot transfer heat any longer. I would imagine it is over heating. There are MANY youtube videos that will walk you through the process. Dont use the cheap heat sink compound. Use the 98% silver. You can find it @ The shack. Not to hard to do if your a little handy.

Tomb raider Underworld-Can't go through kraken


You need to move all of the gears (three in total I think) in order to release the Kraken. Then you have to make your way back to the top and shoot the two retaining chains that hold the object above the Kraken's head. It will drop and strike the creature sending it to the bottom of the water. Then finally, at the bottom of the room there is a final gear-crank that opens the door to allow you to pass.

Hope this helps!

PCI Graphic card for Tomb Raider underworld


Hi,
There are PCI slots in your Machine and one or two PCI-Express slots (one of which might be very short). Usually the Graphics PCI-Express slot is the one on top (right below the CPU).
In order to play Tombraider at a decent speed, you should consider buying a Graphicscard for about 100-120$ going to low will result in low framerates, going to high is not worth the money since graphics cards are becoming obsolete in a matter of 2 years or so...

so get yourself a decent PCE-E GraphicsCard and youll be all set!
Hope this was understandable =)

Having trouble playing game


You might need to update you version of DirectX by going to the microsoft site, or make sure that the 3D accelleration is enable in DXDIAG.
If using XP go to Start>Run (on the right hand side) and type in dxdiag then press enter. When the program opens click on the display tab and check that the 3D accellarator is enabled. Also carry out the tests within the display tab to make sure that there are no other errors. Check the game for the version of DX that it need against the version that you have, your version will be displayed when the dxdiag program opens. I hope this helps
