Thread: Screen Goes Black And Pc Locks Up During Games

  1. #1
    Can anyone suggest what the problem maybe?

    During gameplay if I leave my pc for about 15 mins sometimes the screen is completely black and the keyboard doesn't respond although the lights are on.

    this has happened during Mafia & Total Club Manager although it works fine on some games like NFS: Underground and GTA: vice.

    the specs are.

    Athalon XP 1700+ (not oc)
    512 MB DDR Ram
    GeForce 5200 FX (not oc, 128 Ram, Gainwood)
    On-Board Sound
    Windows XP

    Lame specs I know but I can't afford a new one at the moment

    Umm, this sounds just like a powersaving feature. Make sure you have them all turned off, you might try Google for instructions.

    But if it's not doing it during other games, I wouldn't think it would be the powersaving options.
    Sounds morre like a system lock-up while in those games,
    Have you tried just reinstalling the games, and see if it happens after the reinstall?
