It sounds as if your reinstall may not have included:
1) Latest motherboard driver
2) Latest video drivers
Try running the machine with the side cover off to eliminate heat as a source of the problem.
What was the cause of the reinstall?
Hello. i recently formatted and re-install winxp. Now i'm having alot of problem with it. For example: when i'm playing NHL 2004, which used to run without any problem before i re-install, the game freeze and i have to reboot. Same thing will happen with less graphically demanding games, like civilization 3. If i play Civilization 3 without anything else running, it will run fine, but if for example i start windows media player, it's bound to freeze.
I have a AMD Athlon xp 1600+, 1280 266mhz ram, geforce 3 ti 200.
Anyone can help???
