Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I've asked before in H/A but to no avail, so I'll try here. When I play a game on my computer, after a while it will start to freeze and unfreeze, either doing that until the whole system crashes and reboots or just severely lowering the framerate. The games that this has happened in are: Crysis, Dawn of War, Garry's Mod, Trackmania Nations Forever, and Titan Quest, along with a couple of small indy games. I've run two seperate full virus scans and a spyware scan, with everything coming up clean. I've used a registry cleaning utility to no avail, but I think it made TQ work a little better. I've cleaned off and reapplied thermal paste to my CPU and heatsink, dusted my tower and gotten new drivers for my soundcard and video card. I used a SMART scan of my HDD with everything fine, defragmented and used checkdisk. All of which has done exactly nothing, and the problem seems to have only gotten worse. My current rig is as follows:
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3700+
Mobo: ECS KN1 Lite
RAM: Corsair XMS 2GB (Brand new, got it after problem started.)
HDD: Western Digital 80GB SATA
Video: GeForce 7600GT 256mb
Sound: Soundblaster Audigy
PS: Antec 430W w/3 12volt rails
