Two problems.
« on: January 14, 2012, 11:20:47 am »
Hi.

I'm suffering from two problems and I though maybe I can find a solution for them in here.

1. Sometimes when I go into the main menu of GTA SA, my computer freezes and gives me a completely black screen. What could cause this? Maybe my video card is damaged?

2. Watching videos in Youtube freezes my computer. After a few seconds, it gives me a blue screen and my computer restarts. I've read that Adobe Flash Player could cause this problem, but I'm not sure. Any solutions for that type of problem?

Thanks.

Well start with update of video drivers,seems current what you using are faulty

http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp-285.58-whql-driver.html

Also be sure temperature of video chip is not higher than 80C cause 9800GT models were wellknown as really heat cards.

How can I check the temperature? Do I need a special program for that?

Alright.

I found something while I was checking my Device Manager.

Says that I haven't got any drivers installed for the device. I wonder how did that happen.

Problem with the processor has been fixed now, thanks!

Updated videocard drivers.

Installed CPU-Z aswell, but I can't find the temperature of the videocard.

Seems like Youtube isn't crashing my computer anymore. GPU temp is 42C. I will see if GTA SA still crashes. But anyways thanks for your assistance! :)
