I have an Intel Celeron D 3.33 GHz, 1 gig ram and a Nvidia GeForce 7900 GS. Whenever i play Counter-Strike or Battlefield2, at random times, the game just freezes, the ingame looks distorted and i have to reboot my computer. Does anyone know the newest drive for this video card or any reason why this is happening? Also it never happens when i play Starcraft or doesnt happen anyother time unless i play a game.

newest driver is 94.24. It might be losing connection to the internet and that will make the game freeze. Usually though you can still access the menus.

That is the version you should have for your 7 series geforce card.

Edit: I'm assuming you have windows xp with that link haha

I had this problem with my brothers computer..

After we applied the updates i opened the case and gave it a thorough cleaning and dust removal.

Even after that the game still had the problem but not so frequent.

Then we just reinstalled the game and the problem went away.

Hopefully this helps you out :thumbsup:

Have you always had this problem since having the celeron and the 7900GS? Just wondering because that is a pretty nice graphics card, yet your processor isn't that great. It might be bottlenecked.

nevermind, the driver worked but yet i still have the problem.
Jball - i reformated my computer before and i still had the problem
Sterling - The processor can actually make the graphics card not work? Yes I have always had this problem with both the celeron and the video card. I even braught my videocard to the store and they gave me a new one. Same problem. I believe it might just be my video card, but Counter-Strike is a fairly easy game to run. My 350 watt powersupply, GeForce 2, 1.6 GHz was able to run it perfectly.

About a processor and graphics card combination not working. See the graphics card only processes the video of the game, while your processor is processing everything else like the physics. Now what can happen is since your graphics card is better, its probably loading the video faster then your processor can load everything else. Can you try other games? I'm really not sure if this is the problem. I've never seen it, but have heard about it.

Also, I just had a similar problem from bad ram. While playing games my display would randomly just be cut off so I would have to turn my computer off. Burn an iso image of this program http://www.memtest86.com/ . Let it run all night. See if it comes up with any errors.

See what happens if you don't use that stick of 512mb. Hopefully you have at least another stick of 512 or you might not be able to play the games.
