Games shut down by themselves!
My son has a computer that I put together about a year ago. It has an AMD Athlon Slot A - 900 mh Thunderbird processor . He uses it to do instant messaging and a little word processing etc. He also likes to play some games on it. But most of the games have started shutting down of themselves. It does not go blue screen, just shuts down clean and goes back to the desktop. He used to be able to play Wolfenstein on his old PII 400 mh with no problems. But now with this 900 mh computer he cannot play it at all. It even shuts down when playing SIMS which should be taking little CPU usage. I don't know whether to call it a hardware or a software problem. I just installed DirectX 9 to see if that would help. It didn't. Got any ideas?
