Games crashing and icons on my desktop scattering

I formatted my comp cause some games i was playing where causing my comp to crash and i believe this is to do with my graphics card but i am also suspecting my motherboard

-when i restart my comp all my desktop icon have moved to the left and in random order

-my mouse sometimes has fits on the screen and i am unable to use it for abot 10 seconds

-the screen does go into what you might call a "blue screen of death' the my comp restarts itself and the icons scatter

lastly after i formatted my comp some games are now crashing when i change the resolution and other settings again i suspect my grahics card or motherboard

Hi this does sound like your graphics card has a conflict with another device, your best bet would be to go to the site of your graphics card manufacturer and download the latest drivers for your card, un-install ( actually delete ) the graphics card from the system, ie...add and remove programs, look for drivers for your graphics card, then remove, also go to your device manager and delete it from the hardware so there is no trace of it ( don't worry it will still work it will just default to minimal settings on re-boot) re-boot the system, if it says found new hardware and tries to install your card click no you don't want to install it, then find where you downloaded the drivers and install them and then that should stop the blue screens, games..this also could be the sound card has a conflict with something, as i know allot of games just crash to the desktop for this reason, try doing the same for the sound card, download, remove and install, as above...any more probs just reply and i will see what else there is, if you can also post the blue screen error on here to will be helpful as you can determine what the cause is...hope this helps

Why is my laptop crashing?


I would try getting the latest video card drivers first, if it is a Nvida card & it has recently updated itself, I would roll back the drivers, there has been a problem with the last update & my computer didn't like the upgrade & blue screened a lot, but was fine after I rolled them back in safe mode, if the problem if not repairable via software then go to a Laptop specialist, for what its worth I think its a software issue as you say its only when playing games, but im not an expert just well informed.

Mincecraft Hexxit mods are known to cause crashing problems from time to time. You can try to update the LightWeight Java Game Library and see if that helps. Here is the tutorial:

It crashes


try the following
Please start with these steps when you are ready to troubleshoot the cause of the crashes you are experiencing.
  1. Check the Minimum System Requirements If you have never played the game before on your system, it is crucial to double-check the system requirements to determine if your system can run the game. The minimum system requirements for each game can be found on the game's page in the Steam Storefront.
    Check the DirectX and Pixel Shader Requirements for Games on Steam topic to make sure that your system meets the minimum requirements for the game you are attempting to play. Many newer games such as Team Fortress 2 and Portal require greater system resources than Half-Life 2.
  2. Verify Your Game Cache Files Please see the Verifying GCF Cache Files topic for instructions to ensure game cache file corruption is not the source of the crash.
  3. Rule out Background Applications and Anti-Virus/Security Software Check the Programs Which Interfere with Steam, and Spyware, Adware, and Viruses Interfering with Steam topics to ensure the crash which you have encountered is not related to malicious software or a specific program which is known to cause issues with Steam.
    Certain Anti-Virus applications such as AVG 7.5, Nod32 and Norton have been confirmed to cause instability with Steam and Source Engine games. This software must be fully uninstalled from your system until the Anti-Virus software developers can resolve these issues. If you are not comfortable with using alternative Anti-Virus protection, then we recommend contacting your Anti-Virus developer for more information.
  4. Do Not Use Two Sound Devices Simultaneously If you have installed a PCI or USB sound card on your system (such as a Creative X-fi or Audigy sound card), please ensure that your motherboard's onboard sound card is disabled in the system BIOS. Having both installed may result in system instability - even if the secondary device is disabled in the Windows device manager. Please consult your motherboard's manual for instructions on editing BIOS settings.
  5. Routers and Firewalls Can Also Cause Crashes Check the Router and Router Firmware Issues topic to make sure that your router is properly configured and that you are running the best possible firmware version available. If your router is not configured correctly, it can cause crashes both in Steam and in games.
    Firewalls can also lead to crashes depending on the way they are configured. Please follow the Using a Firewall with Steam topic to make sure your Firewall is properly configured.
  6. Force the Game Settings Back to the "Factory Defaults" Those custom autoexec.cfg files and graphics tweak guides you followed promised all kinds of improvements, but if all you ended up with are crashes then it is time to restore the original game settings for stability. In order to do this, make sure you are not running any custom autoexec.cfg files when the game starts up and use the -autoconfig launch option. To set this option, follow these steps:
    • Right-click on the game you're attempting to play
    • Select "Properties"
    • Click "Set Launch Options", found under the "General" tab
    • Type in: -autoconfig
    • Click "Ok"
    • Launch the game
  7. Mss32.dll (Miles Sound System) Other PC games may install the Mss32.dll file in your C:\Windows\System32 directory. This can lead to the game crashing because the Mss32.dll file in your Windows folder is conflicting with the file located in the game's directory. Please see the The MSS DLL is incorrectly installed in the Windows System directory topic for instructions on how to remove the file from your System32 directory.

My Acer Aspire 5320 is overheating to a point that it crashes and the fan has bean constantly running when i play games on it or any video car incentive programs


you need to stop playing these kind of games on the lapop, this is because latops are not built for gamers, and the graphics card cannot support the game, this causes the laptop processor to heat up, thats why the fan is on constantly and eventually crashes, check the games minimum system requirements before installing and playing games, you can purchase a graphics accelerator card that plugs into the USB slot boosting the graphics but these devices are still very expensive


kind regards
