    Weird effect i have on my games, very frustrating, any experts here???

    There is so much stuff that have changed in my computer; i have put in a new hard drive, i got a new graphic card, i had a different OS, from Win98 to WinME, and still, when i play Starcraft, or Star Trek: Armada, i get this problem.
    Star Trek: Armada...
    i get boot out of the program
    Starcraft...
    in multiplayer mode, everybody drops, and stay alone in the game, against the cpu!

    Now, i am very sure that both problems would be related, and i have not played much of other games, but, i do feel a lot, that, theses 2 problems are related, suggestions needed badly, i don't want to go, and buy myself a new tower!!

    Sorry, i'm not new to the game of computers (please see my signature).

    I've been there, done that, my cpu, in the setup of the bios, is showing a temperature as high as 64 Celsius, and, i went on the AMD website, i have seen limits at 70 celsius, so, basically, there's like a 4 celsius difference, would'nt take much for something to happen, i will know more this weekend, i'm boring a 600 Mhz DURON and is fan for testing on my system. I just hope this will show me my solution, 'cause, i can't take it anymore.

    ok..first of all 64C is way too high , i've seen alot of systems go unstable around 57-8C, and these are high speed Athlons. I suggest you either check you CPU Heatsink to see its making proper contact or looking at your case cooling.if its 64C in the BIOS, imagine the temps under load..

    one question, what Cpu are you running? if you are running a higher speed Duron or Athlon, then results may be misleading, you may get better temps cause the 600 Duron cpu may put out less heat than your current cpu..
    just a thought

    Justintime, i'm counting on it, i want to be sure it's not a problem from something else from my system, so, by having that cpu, and testing it, i will know for sure. By the way, i'm running a 700 Mhz Thunderbird, but, i think the fan is crap, my motherboard shows at a difference of 20 celsius under the temperature of the cpu.

    Darkterritory3, oui, je parle franšais, que vaut l'honneur de cette question?

    Well if your cpu is heating up too much and armada keeps acting up then you have to get the latest patch that fixes bugs with ALOT of hardware,

    Like it said, overclocking shortens the life of a cpu, usually, people do that when they are tired of having a cpu running too slow.
