Ok, I got a new computer recently ad it crashes when I play games.It is an AMD Sempron 3000+ with 512 MB of RAM and a Radeon 9600 videocard. The game I am mostly playing is Warcraft 3, fully patched an I know that my computer can run it, as my old computer with a 400MHZ proccessor could with only chopping, never crashing. When it crashes the game just freezes on the screen. I have scanned with all of my antivirus and antispyware programs, and removed all spyware and viruses found. The computer only sewms to freeze during gameplay, and spikes during it too. This happens on LAN games, online games and single-player ones. SO, do you have any clue on how I can fix this. The computer also has a few rare spikes when not playing games, but it never freezes. So does anyone have any idea why this is happening? Any hlp would be appreciated, thanks.

get a newer version of catalyst drivers ( i use the 4.12's, other version of catalyst drivers caused freezing problems with simple games)

or you could try the 5's cause they are out

Since you said that your computer also experiences similar problems when you arent playing a game, see if your computer is overheating.
