Sounds more like a over heating or RAM problem. Try pulling out and re-inserting the RAM. Make sure that the fans are running and clean.
If it doesnt lockup in safe mode, try upgrading the video drivers...

My PC always freeze :( my pc is : Packard bell ipower 8006 gamer ram = 4 gb Graphic card = nvidia geforce 9000 OS = win 7 (64bits) plz help me

You may be overloading your RAM capability. If you have too many things running at once (some you may not even be aware of) could slow down or even freeze your computer. By opening up your task manager, you can see what programs are running right now.

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!

I think the problem it's graphic card

Check your antivirus software. This seems to be the problem of something running in the background when you are playing the game. If it would have been the Graphics card, the game would not have worked, or would have given errors.

Try to disable your antivirus or any other program that may be running in the background. Then check once again.

My packard bell laptop, has 2 split vertical screens showing


In some of the forums, it has mentioned that the windows update could corrupt the video driver. So try uninstalling the video driver and download the latest video driver from website and install it. This must resolve the issue.

Revert back for clarifications.
