While playing videogames,mostly demanding ones,the game suddenly "freezes",the screen goes black and after some 15 seconds it comes back to normal.It happens every few minutes,or even seconds and it's pretty irritating. I noticed that it happens in PES 2010,MoH 2010,CoD Black Ops,Company of Heroes... Older games run fine.I could play Crisis with NVIDIA Geforce 7600 GS and 1.8 mhz processor and this was never happening.That was my old computer of course. About the new one: Graphic Card: ATI Radeon HD 5750 512MB DDR5 CPU Intel Core2Duo E7500 2.93 mhz Memory: DDR3 2GB Kingmax 1333 mhz
My drivers are always up to date. If anyone knows a possible solution how to fix this,please tell me. Thanks.
Only time i've had that issue its always been driver/vid card related. More specifically, its the driver resetting itself because of a problem. Usually heat or overclocking too high.
What are your temps like?
Temps?Ahh...I hope you mean temperature,my english is still not perfect. It's currently like this: Temperature: 47% Activity: 0% Fan speed: 36%
Did you get this from Catalyst Control center?
And Activity of 0% make the temperatures worthless. You need to have a look while you're playing - bring it up before your game, Alt+Tab while playing and look.
Mr. Pedantic;5455001Did you get this from Catalyst Control center?
Yes I did. Ok,I'll do it.
I did it,I was playing MoH 2010 for 5 minutes and then I opened it with alt+tab. Temperature was 57%,fan speed was 40% and activity went down to zero as soon as I closed the game but I think it was around 30.
Google and download HWMonitor. Keep that open while you're playing a game - for at least twenty minutes - then post back here with the maximum temperatures for your CPU, motherboard, and GPU, or take a screenshot.
Also try removing the ATI drivers, run driversweeper & try re-installing the ATI drivers.
No offense, but both those cards will struggle with any modern game. But, it should not freeze & restart like you are describing.

Here it is:
All those temps look fine.
Try Chocu1as suggestion and do a clean reinstall of the latest drivers.
