    I play a game called America's Army.--1st person shooter
    When I'm in the middle of playing, or after I have died, my screen randomly freezes temporarily. It seems like it is happening more frequent than ever has before. It freezes for around 10-15 seconds then it the screen turns black and the game comes back and I can play again. This is getting to be very inconvenient in fire-fights. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    SwiZZ

    8.09 sound right ? -- I updated some drivers .. thought I had the latest but it turns out I didn't. Now a different thing is happening. It's freezing and it won't come back... but less frequent. I think it has something to do with my soundcard because after a lil while when it's frozen. I hear a kind of screeching sound...and static and other things like that....
