Hey,

Basically started last Friday, i installed crisis and played it for a bit and everything worked fine. I then installed black and white 2 and after 20mins of playing it the screen went blank and there was a buzzing noise coming from my speakers. I switched off the computer and uninstalled black and white 2 and crisis. I then began playing LOTRO and the problem still persisted! So I decided to do a disk defrag, there was no change. I then restored by PC to a a couple of days before I installed crisis and Black and white 2 but its still happening whenever I play LOTRO, but this time the blank screen is not accompanied by the buzzing noise from the speakers.
I really dont know what to do and this is becoming a bit frustrating. It only seems to happen when I'm playing games.

Hi and welcome to TSG.

First things I would look at are your temperatures and check your drivers are fully up to date.

Download and install HWMonitor, use the v1.17 links on the right side of the page. When installed, run the program and it will open a window on your desktop. Once that window is open try running a game for a couple of minutes (hopefully without it crashing), then exit the game and post a screenshot of the full HWmonitor window.

How long have you had the PC and have you ever cleaned it out inside the case?

Hey Tanis,

Thanks for the welcome.
Okay, I updated my NVIDIA driver and my Realtek audio driver. I then tried playing LOTRO for 5mins or so and it still kept on crashing :( It seems like this crashing problem is becoming more frequent. I did finally manage to keep the game running for arund 5mins and took screenshots of HWMonitor after I exited the game, which I have put in an attachment.

Hi,

Looking at your temps, unfortunately the main one I wanted to see isn't there, the temp for the GT220 Graphics Card. This isn't anything you have done, having said that, all your other system temps look OK. Just to make sure, have you checked inside the case for dust build up? You can also try running a game with the side of the case removed, this can often indicate if the problem is heat related or not. If it works OK, or for significantly longer with the side of the case removed then you may well have a heat related problem.

Where did you get your Graphics Card and Audio Drivers from, I ask as the graphics card drivers you are using are still quite old. Your DXDiag says you are using version 186.37 and the latest version from Nvidia is 266.58 released 18th Jan 2011 (http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/win7-winvista-64bit-266.58-whql-driver-uk.html). I am using these latest ones with my card and haven't noticed any problems, they were a little problematic to install compared to my previous experience of NVidia drivers but that might have just been me. I had to go into Safe Mode, totally uninstall the previous version adn then I rebooted to install the newer ones in normal mode, they just wouldn't update if I tried to overwrite existing drivers (I also use Win 7 64 bit).

I assume these games have worked fine previously, you haven't changed any hardware in the machine since it came out the factory?

That happened to me, with the 186.37 once with Crysis. I update my drivers every time they release new ones. It works fine now. But I use Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit so my results may be different. But you are right Tanis. I have to go into Safe Mode, but it doesn't bother me as I like my games running fine. Also, BrijG, have you got any other games you could try?

Well I got the drivers off the Packard Bell Download Center (put in my model number and it gave me those to download). And yes this PC is totally stock. I must admit I haven't cleaned it from the inside (I've had the PC for just over a year), but I will get straight to it after I find my toolkit :)
Strange thing is crisis worked fine when I played it, it was soon as I downloaded Black and White 2 that the blank screen problems occured. Currently the only game I got on the PC is Lord of the Rings Online.

P.S I downloaded the driver you gave me from the link, I will run a game and see if its been fixed. Also how is the best way to make sure all my drivers are up to date?

The easiest way to keep drivers up to date, as far as I am concerned, is to manually check yourself periodically. Don't rely on Windows to do it for you as that will almost always be out of date. I normally resort to the machine manufacturers drivers only if I have an issue of some kind, otherwise I will almost always use the drivers produced by the specific component manufacturer. i.e. Nvidia graphics card - get drivers direct from NVidia website.

As for the cleaning, use canned air to give it a good blast out (while switched off obviously :) ), pay particular attention to heat sinks and fans. If you use the canned air on the fans make sure you hold the fan blades still while you do it as the fast airflow can overspin the fans and damage the bearings.

What antivirus and firewalls are you using?

Okay, since I updated the Nvida driver, the problem is still occuring.
I use avast antivirus and the standard windows firewall.
Will try cleaning the inside of the PC now.

OK, might be worth running some tests on the RAM etc aswell, have covered the basics for the graphics and that isn't helping :(.

Download memtest86, get the bootable ISO version and create a bootable CD. When you have the CD done, stick it in the CD/DVD ROM, and reboot your machine. It may not have the CD/DVD setup to boot from first, if that is the case you will need to go into the BIOS and change the boot order to set the CD/DVD before the hard drive.

Once you have booted with the CD then run the full RAM test, this may take a while to complete (hours) and it is best to let it complete at least 2 full sets of tests. See if any errors are reported at the end of the tests, if there is nothing then your RAM is OK.

Also, while you are inside the case doing a bit of spring cleaning, double check that all cables and connectors are fitted securely.

How old is the PC? Your power supply could be another cause of the problem if it is aging a bit. When running games it puts extra demand on the power supply and if it is struggling to produce the required power levels that can cause all sorts of wierd and wonderful things to happen.

Hey,

Sorry I haven't kept you posted for the past couple of days, have had alot of work on. Anyways, I cleaned the inside of PC, there wasn't much dust compared to other PC's I have cleaned and suprisingly it seems to have worked. Games seems to run fine, and there hasn't been any blank screens :D
Thanks for all the help and speedy replies Tanis, I really appreciate it!

No problem at all with the replies, I am not always the quickest to get do it myself (as you can see with this post .. haha). If the problem appears to have gone for the time being, and it appeared to start when you installed Crisis / Black and White 3, then I would certainly re-install them and see how it goes.

You don't necessarily need alot of dust to build up, it could just build up in the worst places :)

Lets hope it is all sorted.
