    I have problems with OpenGL games. They play normally for about five to ten minutes before either closing or restarting the computer. At first I thought that the problems are just the lack of OpenGL.dll files in the c:\windows\system folder, but when I downloaded some dll files for that the games still shut down, though they didn't restart the computer anymore...

    I don't know what to do anymore...

    Mrhhm, OpenGL Extensions program shows that OpenGL is v1.2, the graphics card/chipset is KM400/KN400/MMX/K3D. My PC is capable enough to play any game, the problem is with OpenGL itself. As soon as I play any game that uses OpenGL rendering and such, it will crash five to ten minutes into the game, usually colsing it or restarting the CPU.

    Just to note, no, your PC is not good enough to play any game. The spec you have posted is definitely at the lower end, I am afraid. The chipset is old, and the on board graphics you name are about equal to an old 4 series Nvidia card. A lot of games will have problems with the 400 series, and I would guess this may well be the same thing. If you can find a graphics card you can use, and it appears the motherboard is a 4x/8x AGP socket, you may find a better performance available.
    exactly which games are crashing? If you can give a few examples, might be able to look for a solution.
