    Please give more information on your system specs> video card> Games and @ what resolution you are running these. This sounds like a vid card crash but without more info it is hard to say for sure.

You have to use the higher capacity RAM to hold large primary memory and good graphics card.
With little configuration you experience this type of problems with high ended games.

hope this helps.

Hi i use YM When i try to call pc to pc or if sombedy try to call me it crashes. Can you help me please ? Thank you !

Hello motus50,
I see you have a Yahoo Messenger problem. I would recommend you install a virus scanner. I use Malwarebytes (FREE) and Avast Antivirus (FREE) These two programs will find the malware hidden on your computer. Malware can be the cause of your computer crashing. Possible Result of issue: Yahoo Could be running a certain .dll file. That file could be infected. So the virus is just infecting your computer while crashing it. Just download those two programs and scan & remove them.
Try it again. And it should work. If the problem still persists. Try downloading a older version of yahoo messenger.

How to fix Explorer crashes that are due to video codecs in XP

Recently I have been coming across a growing problem with Explorer crashing while trying to view videos or opening a video folder.

This is to do with a media dll file that is clashing with video codecs or just basically becoming corrupt.

We all need video and audio codecs to listen to and watch our videos. Whether you download a music video from iTunes or just back up an old DVD to your computer.

The problem itself is caused when Windows trys to show the thumbnail of the video and then Explorer crashes.

To resolve the problem I have found that if you have videos dotted around in different folders. Rearrange the files into managable folders in a folder called Videos for example.
Then, click on the Start Menu and then select Run. In the Run box type "reg svr /u shmedia.dll" (without quotation marks) and hit the enter key. A command line window will pop up and then dissapear very fast. This just means the fix is applied.

This should resolve Explorer crashing.

After that I would then set about updating to the latest codecs. I recommend XP Codec Pack.
Click on the link that I have provided below to download XP Codec Pack.

XP Codec Pack can be installed on XP, Vista and Win 7 without running the program in compatibility mode.

If you would like to leave a comment regarding this tip please don't hesitate to leave note.

Operating system

if your os often corrupted means it can be due to a virus......because 50% of the xp crashes will be occuring due to virus......i am computer engineer.....and i have handled these crashes many times....thats why i am telling.....otherwise the problem will be in motherboard.....but if motherboard is new....the chances that caused crashes by motherboard will be very less or i better suggest you to scan your computer with a good anitivirus.....because if virus exists the chances of crashing will be high.....the best antivirus i suggest you to use kaspersky internet secuity it detection rate is higher than any other antivirus......if your problem still persists i suggest you to call software engineer to solve the problem....because by seeing the your computer only one can know the exact problem....thats why....
