Hey guys! so I got a very strange problem when playing some games.
Recently I have bought games like Modern Warfare 2 and Dragon Age origins. They work perfectly fine. But some of my older games like fallout 3, and street fighter 4, crash every time I try to play them. They work perfectly fine for a minute or so, suddenly the colors in the game start changing and the pc just freezes. I think this is very strange because well dragon age and mw2 I play with the highest resolution and graphics and nothing happens while street fighter 4, aion and fallout 3 crashes even with the lowest graphics.

Does anyone have an Idea what could be wrong?
I have a 4gb ram, Windows 7, GTX 295, AMD Phenenom 4 quad 3,2 ghz.

Any kind of help would be much appreciated Smile

The first things to try are updating the drivers for your graphics card, and to check for any known issues and patches for the games that have problems - go to the game's website.

You also don't mention your operating system. If you are using Windows 7, it could be that some older games will not work correctly, as the game was designed for earlier operating systems.
