Hardware failure? or M$ failure?
OK, heres the problem, ive got a decent box, Athlon XP 1700+, 256MB DDR, 40Gb hd, nVidia geforce2 400 64mb video card, but its running M$ Winblows 2000, and whenever i try to play games that require openGL support they play for a while then something f***s up and gives me a the blue screen of death(kernel error), i know my system has openGL support and ive downloaded the latest drivers for everything, it still has this problem, if i shut the machine down for an hour or so then play it will last about 3 hrs, otherwise it only takes about an hour.
Im hoping somebody can tell me if this is an incompatability between some hardware, or between some of the hardware and Winblows. I know i cant be the only one that has ever had this problem, so please if you know anything let me know...im starting to hate my computer, and thats a bad thing.
I did not come here to tell you how it is going to end, I came here to tell you how it was going to begin. I\'m going to hang up this phone, then I\'m going to tell these people what you don\'t want them to hear.
