Hi, Iíve been having some problems with computer lately. When i attempt to play games such as quake 3, championship manager etc which my computer as never had any problems dealing with, after a minute or so the sound starts cracking, little rain drop sounds begin, they get louder and louder and more frequent until it completely takes over and the computer freezes... Never had this happen before. The only way to stop this is by exiting the games before this sound takes over. I even tried playing snes games on it (using emulators) the computer does not freeze but these sounds do exist but it doesn't get to the point where the computer freezes.
Everything else seems to work fine. I have formatted quite a few times now but with no improvements. Iíve installed the games first (when least resources are taken up by the computer) after formatting and this still happens.
Could i have some problem with my video card or something?
