Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

1 Answer

Game Freezes up CPU

I have a Dell Inspiron B130 with Windows XP. Everytime I play a 3D game called Audition it randomy freezes and says my video/display driver stopped working. I was wondering if you knew of a driver download that I was unaware of because this is very frustrating!

Thanks

Your video card cannot support the graphics that game is trying to run. Try setting the graphics on the game's menu to a lower resolution or get a higher powered video card.

Every time i start playing a game, about one minute into it, the game freezes. the screen stays, no sound, no error code. the tray still can come out and only the power symbol (no controller indicators) is...


This is called lockup aka freezing. The problem is
caused by a open connection from the C.P.U. to the
G.P.U. and it should happen even on the dashboard
with out a game being played.

The Fix is to have both the G.P.U. and the C.P.U. reflowed
and properly clamped. cost 50.00-80.00 .

check to see if it locks up ( freezes on the menu screen after
10-15 min ) just to confirm my suspicions.


if you have any questions ,feel free to ask

Hi,

I had the same problem with my Xbox, and the answer wasn't good. This is a hardware issue cause by the video coolor not working and the game overheating, making the video freeze totally.

Call 1-800-4MYXBOX, and have your console serial number ready. They might be able to walk you through some basic troubleshooting, but this will most likely end in you needing to send the system in for a repair.

Could be that you have intel integrated graphics and the game does not support your chipset... It could be that the laptop is overheating or that your RAM is bad... I recommend checking your GFX Card first and then doing a ram check with a Linux live cd such as Ubuntu. You can also download a utility that can check your CPU temp if you can not find it in your BIOS.

Acer x223w monitor - unexplained system freezes


is your lcd has a dvi port? aside from vga? and also is your video card has a dvi port? if all these questions meet, first uninstall the driver of your video card. Then, you need to switch your cable, in order to do this, you must place the one end of your cable to the dvi port of the cpu and the other end to your lcd dvi port. and reinstall the driver again of your video card. see if it works. because there is a certain problem that vga port configuration differs from the
dvi port. that's why when playing games, especially online games. sometimes your system will get corrupted.

Good luck! have a nice day

Well start a bit slower then.
go into the bios at startup F2, and navigate around does it freeze there. if no then
start windows in safe mode F8 when windows logo shows.

If its not freezing then turn off the startup programs.
Start/run/msconfig and then uncheck load startup items
and start normally, click the dont show me this again /ok

If its freezing you may have a hardware issue.
