Hey all.

So I'm not sure if this is a hardware or software problem, but it only comes up when I'm playing games so I figured this would be the best place to bring it up.

Whenever I play games on my PC, I am able to play for anywhere between five to twenty minutes. After that, my monitor turns itself off. Or, rather, it acts like it is no longer receiving information from my computer (it acts as if my computer is off). Yet the tower is still running. Sound will either continue almost as normal; usually, background noise from the game will continue while all active sound components (gunfire, powers being used, enemy voices, et cetera) will cease. Alternatively, the sound will begin to loop the previous second or two repetitively, though the former happens much more often.

I'm not entirely sure what the issue is here, but it occurs every time I play a game on my PC. Any help would be very appreciated. My GPU is an ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT, and my processor an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000 +. I know I have a Dynex 500W PSU, and 3GB of RAM (though I don't know the model of it). Beyond that, I'm not 100% certain what's in my tower, but I hope that's at least somewhat helpful.

As I said, any help on this would be very much appreciated. Cheers!

- Nick

You have a DDS log posted.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
