thanks for all the info. I am going to try all those things. My computer is a brand new zt computer with 2 gig memory and the top of the line video card nvidia 6800 gt and 500 gb hard drive and a 23 inch sony monitor. I spent a lot of money for this top of the line system which I read about in PC magazine and the results are very poor. It is not only everquest that is freezing up, when my child was playing sponge bob typing (to learn typing skills) it froze up. what a sad state of affairs. I mean sponge bob does not freeze up on any of my other computers at home or at work. I tried to contact nvidia to ask for help, and their web site says we do not sell our video cards to the public, so we cannot offer you any support. please contact the pc manufacturer. but zt computers which pc magazine recomends is a small company in new york, and their support staff do not know a lot. so now I am on my own. got this top of the line pc for lots of money, but it is no good.
any ideas on why the screen would freeze up when you get flashing bright lights on the monitor? any help is appreciated, and I will report on the result with everquest after I try all recommended options. Also I just got doom3 and it freezes up as well, just when bright lights flash on the screen. and doom3 says it works best with a nvidia video card 6800 gt, just like mine. and I did update all the drivers, but that did not help anything in everquest, or doom3.
