I hope someone can may be point me in the right direction as I am at my wits end with my machine.
I have had nothing but problems when ever I attempt to play games, I get into to a game, be it, BF2, BF2142 and the new Quake wars beta and it plays fine for about 23-30mins some times only a few minutes then the screen locks up and the only way to get out it is to restart the machine.
But when I run sis Sandra on burn in test, 10 times all passed, even left it running for 4hrs no issues found. only issue that was spotted once was a memory test which failed on my memory but was never seen again.
I built a new pc last week, spec included.
I have updated all the nvidia drives that I can get hold of, even trying the beta versions, made sure every windows driver has been updated sill the same issue. Windows is not giving me a blue screen or a error code after restart. I have also updated the mother board bios to the latest release. I have reinstalled the os twice.
I have changed the following parts using a friends machine as a donor and some old bits I had all bits I believe are working fine, memory swapped out, graphics card swapped over, still the same issue.
I thought that it was the graphics card after I had read a few articles on here, but when it was taken out the pc has the same issue, but sadly no one I know has a psu that will handle the card so I cant test it any where else.
Going off my kit can anyone suggest anything else before I format my secondary drive and try loading the os again on that incase its the hd, i have also swapped over the sata cables incase one of the was duff.
