Here

is the problem. When I am playing a game like Counter Strike, World of Warcraft... or anything 3D like that my game will freeze up in the middle of it. Before I did what I did, I was getting nv4_disp with the BSOD. But I do not get that anymore, I just lock up in game.
I dont know why... My video card is nvidia geforce fx 5200

I have the latest Nvidia Drivers
I have the latest version of direct x installed...


It might be because the video card is overheating. I cleaned the dust out of my case and it still happens.

Could be a heat issue. Try leaving your case opened (be careful), and see if it still has the problem or at least not as frequently.

Have you over clocked your system at all? If so, turn put the settings back to normal.

Another thing that was recommended to me, just to try and determine a problem, was to open the case and place a desk fan or similar over the computer.

Here is the thread (on a different forum) I made when I had the same problem as you:

Try it with the case open and a fan blowing directly into the case (specifically on your gfx card). Don't play CS:S, try WoW instead. CS:S has enough problems of it's own... :thumbsup:

You can also try dropping down to the lower (lowest graphic settings) to see if that helps-->it'll make it easier for your graphics card to run the game(s). Also, disable any extra sound options that you don't need, like 3D, or surround sound, or something similar if applicable.
