It may be that you do not have enough memory to play that game (or others) and it is trying to use virtual memory (your hard drive) but it also does not have the space , this is probably the sound you hear, the hard drive thrashing
removal all programs, pics songs etc that you do not need, maybe burn to disc,also empty recycle bin & remove cookies in IE ,then defragment your hard drive and try playing the game.

it maybe that your hard drive is about to die so backup any important data.

good luck

    512 ram is not much if you are running winxp,

    increase the virtual memory to 1300 mbs,

    (this is the space on the hard drive that the computer uses and sees as extra ram)

    if it only happening when you play the game ,

    uninstall the game, then re install it.check the specs of the game and ensure you have what it takes,especially the video requirements.

    good luck

    one gig is good ,and will solve the problem if that is why you are having trouble,

    you have plenty of space on your hard drive,so hard drive is ok as far a space goes.

    the virtual memory i am talking about is created using the hard drive space.

    to do this :

    right mouse button click ,on my computer icon on the desktop , if no icon, click on start button then :

    • right click on "my computer"

    • go down and click on "properties"

    • click on the "advance" tab at the top

    • click on "settings" button in performance area

    • in performance options box click on "adjust for best performance".

    • click on "advance" tab in performance box

    • go to the bottom where it says "virtual memory "and click on "change"

    • in virtual memory box, click on 'custom size"

    • enter 750 for minimum and 1300 maximum

    • click on "set"

    • close off all boxes and you have increased the virtual memory to 1300 mbs maximum

    • and you have told windows to set its settings for best performance.

    good luck and maybe increase your rating of my efforts

My system fails, when any game is run on it. and it hangs also.

This might be a VGA problem, but there is more chance for it to be a RAM problem.
Sometimes one of the chips in the middle fails. When the computer is idling running a normal program the computer uses the RAM card, but not the memory in the defective chip.
When you play a game the computer will want more memory. Probably all the chips in the RAM are used. When computer tries to use the memory in defective chip, computer will fail.
Here are solutions:
If you have two ram cards, remove one and play a somewhat small game. It the computer hangs, try using with only the other RAM installed. You may be able to locate the defective RAM card.
Find an Ubuntu CD and boot the from it. After few minutes, when it asks you to select a language, press 'Escape' button. Select 'Memory Test' from the menu and press 'Enter'.
The progress of the memory test will be shown on top area of the screen. If memory is defective, you will see some technical information below in RED color.
If no RAM seems to be defective, the problem might be with your VGA.

Every time i play games my computer is restart

Have you installed anything new lately into your P.C.? Graphics card , Ram, etc.. does this only happen when starting games?
Perform 'Disk Cleanup' and 'Disk Defragmenter' both found by clicking 'Start button', 'All Programs', Accessories', 'System Tools', then select 'Disk Cleanup' 1st and finish that before selecting ' Disk Defragmenter', When completely finished reboot P.C. and try your games. If it still happens it might be a simple thing like replacing the Power Supply Unit (PSU). The P.C. sounds like it's demanding more power when starting games and the P.C. restarting to protect itself.

System gets restarted while playing games

Hi there , not shore if this helps but , when your playing game the graphics uses more power to run the 3d display , if the system is completely restarting from bios the power supply may not be good enuff to support this , you could try disconnecting something your not using to test this like a cd or dvd rom .

I work with my computer but no power signal in the board or even a beep to determine whether the error is the vid card or memory..

check your onboard capacitors for bloated caps and burnt resistors. if your power supply is ok, then its these problems on your board.

if youd like to DIY, have a ohm-meter by your side and start testing those board.

After computer locks up, reboot is not successful because it hangs again

It seems to me your system did not receive enough power from your power supply unit (PSU). Get a "real power type PSU". It should solve your problem.

I'd be leaning towards a hardware problem most likely your video card. Could you post some more specs on your computer eg video card(type, size, slot type) how much ram you have now, what operating system your running, what resolution your trying to run these games at and what options eg anti-aliasing etc. and what size monitor. The extra information will make it easier for me to provide a more accurate solution to your problem.
