    Well thank you for your reply. I am running on windows xp pro 64 bit. :) i think i may have fixed this driver problem...by formating my HD and installing mobo drivers from XFX.com which seems to work as the game has not froze on me so far. But for the graphic card drivers, dont get me wrong it works fine but i have to go into the files on the cd and manually select the setup file to install the drivers. It wont auto run. It shows a screen displaying "installing drivers" but does nothing...this is not a major problem and does not require a solution But i cant overclock by computer and i dont know why...just got a kick **** noctua cpu cooler..450 watt PS, maybe i need more power? It starts up then shuts down over and over if i let it, will only except the lowest overclock setting. THANKS!!

In my experience, game crashes usually occur due to graphic card drivers needing to be updated, they are either old or corrupt. Go to nvidia.com and download the latest drivers. Another thing to check is your device manager for any devices listed that are having trouble or not installed. I can help you more with this part if you tell me what operating system you are using.

1 GB of ram? Check the software for minimum PC system requirements.It will say how many MHz is necessary to play the game.It will also give you what video card (min),RAM(min),DirectX (7 or Higher?) this game requires MINIMUM to run.Quite often the game will run,but poorly.Your AMD 2200 runs at 1800 which isn't lightening fast,but sufficient.I think the addition of at least 1 more GB of RAM is what you need,a total of 3GB would really make the computer happy when playing games.

Run this program from Microsoft to test your current memory for errors.
My computer is much like yours,I have XP Media-The 8600 card,a dual core 2.8 processor and 3GB of RAM.This setup will run a online racing game without hick ups at 1152 x 864 resolution.When I only had 1GB of RAM it would stutter like it was constantly trying to load the program,so I added another Gig and it started playing allot better.It couldn't keep up with Halo online until I added another 1GB for a total of 3GB.I am using a 32x version of XP,going to a 64x setup would improve performance even more.
Sorry,I'm talking too much.Try the RAM after you test what you have,you'll be glad you did!

Blue screen while playing games


Try a new driver for that card. That gpu has problems with sims 2 games. More ram could be needed, a better cpu and that graphics card isnt great for playing newer games a Nvidia geforce 9600gt is much better.

Roll back the drivers to the original that worked and leave it there. Some times an update acts more like a downdate and screws things up. If your getting blue screens, its a hardware failure and is most likely do to the drivers just not being compatible with your system config.

You could also try updating the BIOS on the mainboard and see if that improves it.

I had alot of issues with ATI's catalyst on my last computer. the program kept causing problems so i removed catalyst and installed just the drivers and it worked great after that.
