I'm running:
WinXP service pack 2
p4 3ghz
1 gig ram
nvidia geforce 6600

all my drivers are up to date.

and I can't play any games for more than 10 minutes without them crashing unexpectedly. Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this?

It sounds like the computer is overheating/running to hot. Try the instructions contained in the Cleaning the Interior of your PCTutorial.

Please let us know your results.

I've recently cleaned out my PC. I've also changed the pagefile to have a min/max of 1500. (i have one gig of ram) And I've defragged, turned off indexing, and visual effects. I've done all the tweaking i can think of. Computer still freezes/crashes randomly during games :thumbsup:

Update:

So I was playing Eve Online and my computer froze. I did a hard reboot (held the reset button) and while my computer was booting up, right before it got into the windows loading screen, i received a blue screen of death with the following information.

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

at the bottom of the screen was the following:

***STOP: (0x0000000) (0x0000000, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x806FFA8E)

i did another hard reboot, and the computer froze again this time in windows, at my desktop. Yet another hard reboot, and now here I am, quite confounded :flowers:

Computer froze again this time during a virus scan, so it's definitely not limited to games.

I know you said your drivers were up to date. But have you recently reinstalled your video driver. If not try to uninstall and reinstall the driver for your nvidia geforce 6600. You may also want to test your memory with Memtest86

http://www.memtest86.com/download.html

use the second download, this takes a long time to run.

or here:

i booted up the mem test and my computer kept freezing. i take that as a sign of faulty ram. i just ordered some and will get back to this topic after i have replaced my current ram. (sigh i hope this works)

thanks for the linkage crizz and i appreciate your advice old fart.
