It's not your operating system that is the cause. Its either a corrupt game file, or your computer/video card can't handle the game.

Please post back with what game you are playing. I will try to be of further assistance.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Gx620 boots up, then screen goes blank, reboot gives blank screen with cursor blinking. will boot with cd but still shuts down after a minute or two.


Remove the battery and open the case. Look inside the computer with a flashlight to see if any of the capacitors are busted or leaking from corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers, but they are not as tall as the AA or AAA batteries.

If the capacitors are bad, your computer goes bunkers.

On start up fan runs, no beeps, black screen, no response from keyboard & mouse. Unplugged everything for 30 minutes, then tried again, start up began then went to black screen, no keyboard, no m


in your case, there might be some problem with the main board.
usually no beeps will related to the processor error / mainboard error / ram error / PSU error

to check the processor : try to exchange the processor with the same type.

to check the Memory: try use rubber eraser to clean the cooper plate of the memory. then plugged it again.

in case if there is a power supply error, then try to exchange the power supply using other PC PSU.

if all steps above are checked, the problem might be at the mainboard. in that case, replacement will be the best option.

Keyboard not responding.


This post seems to be a duplicate of one posted under the name of Guest, so, I am pasting the solution here just in case you have not gotten notification of resolution suggestions.

Your problem sounds more like the system running slow rather than the keyboard being the issue.
Do routine maintenance and cleanup on your system to see if it helps it.

To start the Disk Cleanup tool and specify the hard disk to clean by using a command line, use the following steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type the following line and then press ENTER
    cleanmgr
  3. click OK
  4. The dialog box that opens shows you the files it will remove to clean up the system
  5. Make sure Temporary files is checked
  6. Click OK
Then check your system for malicious software.
  1. Go to http://malwarebytes.org
  2. Download and scan the system
  3. Remove all found infections.
  4. Restart your system
These things should help if this is the cause.

Let me know if this resolves your issue.

Remove everything connected to the PC ie usb devices with the exception of keyboard and mouse. Removing memory and starting a PC will never work it needs it to boot. check all connections are secure especially that the graphics cards are seated in their slots, now try.
The error code you get is related to the graphics card so remove them and clean them up refit and try again. If it still fails remove the link between the cards remove the card you suspect as faulty and boot with just one card. When you find the culprit you can choose to live without it or get it repaired. If you are not into powerful 3D effect games I'd live without it

Mouse and Keyboard problem encountered in game


the problem is not with your mouse or keyboard but with your system itself. vista is very intensive in eating up your memory resources. try to disable some program like aero or other features of vista which will slow down your computer. how big is your memory both internal and video?
