Hello. I have a problem with nearly every high end 3d game. The game freezes at some point (after 5 minutes, sometimes after an hour) in a way that screen goes colorful and stuck. My sound gets looped and only restart button helps. Sometimes it also restarts itself kinda automatically without getting really stuck. I have met this problem at least with Half-Life2, Mass Effect1, Anno 1404, Civilization 4 (RARELY), Borderlands, Farcry22, Crysis, Crysis Warhead. My build is following:
OP: Windows XP Home with Service Pack 3
Mother Board: ASUS P5B (BIOS version 08.00.12)
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 @ 3.16GHz (2CPUs)
RAM: 3008MB (2x512 Buffalo 333Mhz, 2x1024 Kingston 333Mhz)
Graphics: XFX GeForce GTX 260 Black Edition (driver 6.14.0011.9621)
PSU: Corsair 750W TX
I ran MemTest86+ V4.00 earlier today and it didnt find any problems with my DDR chips. Then i upgraded my Antec 500W power to 750W Corsair which didnt help the problem either. Temperature with the CPU is about 43-46C and MB 30-33C. I have checked them alt+tabbed while playing something and they never much bigger than that.
Please if anybody have a clue what might be the problem, i would appreciate very much.
Thanks for your time reading this.
