Question about ATI ALL-IN-WONDER 9600 PRO (128 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Blue screen (not OD) random video game crash

Let me start off saying this doesn't happen with halo and guild wars
This DOES however happen when I play most games downloaded from the net, including maple story, gunz, knight online, and shaiya.

What happens is, is that the game will run fine for a few minutes, then the screen will flicker a bit, then my computer reboots itself.
The screen turns blue before rebooting, but no text appears. After I log back onto windows and look at the error web page it lists it as a driver error.
I have used many versions of the ATI drivers for my card, and used the CCC and just used the drivers. Nothing seems to fix this problem.

What can I do?
Thank you very much for any replies!

What I would do is do a clean run over to the videocard.

1. Reseat videocard in pc. (take out and put back in expansion slot)
2. Delete all drivers by doing this... device card from pc.
3. Redownload newest drivers.

If that doesnt work, try updating direct X from microsofts website. Just search Direct X update.
Hope this helps, if ya need more assistance on the issue just let me know.

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.

Theoretically, your computer should have no problem running these programs. However, after researching the Dell Precision 450 specs, I found that it is a business machine with a quadro graphics card. This card is not targeted at gaming applications such as an Nvidia GeForce. This link will explain the differences. The graphics card itself may be causing the problem if the graphics drivers are crashing. This manifests as everything going black and no keys working. Also, if it is the stock card, it barely has enough graphics memory to run guild wars. You could try updating the graphics drivers from Nvidia. You could also get a new graphics card that is designed for gaming.

Another solution that you could try is updating the games by downloading patches for your games.

It sounds to me like you don't have a video card with enough memory. Those games require a very advanced video card. Check the specifications on the games and see if you need to upgrade.

My system turns off when i playing god of war 3 on ps3 it will shut of on me sometime for 1 hour r half and hour now 5 seconds once i log on it just turns off when i listenin to music r playing other games...

You may have it set to turn off after it has not been used for a certain time if it is turning off when you are not actually using it. The auto turn off is part of the settings menu and there is also an auto off for the controllers that will stop you from running the batteries down on the controllers when the system is turned off. If it is turning off randomly while you are playing you can try ask the question at the Playstation Support Network and find out whether it has happened to others. It could be an overheating, power off for protection from fire, system directed shut down If not try running it by itself off via the wall. So don't use your your powerboard rather run it direct from it's own socket. I had a similar issue where the powerboard was at fault.

Also keep any electronics away from it mainly our iphones, and since doing that I have not had any random shutdowns

Wont read disc,instead says open tray

Try turning the xbox on and off. Try removing the power from the xbox and plugging it back in. Try other discs and see if it works. Try doing updates on your xbox360 and see if that fixes the problem. That fixed mine with Halo.
