It is a Gateway P-7811FX, it wont let me put that below for some reason.\015

Answers :

Does your system meets the minimum requirements for those game? If yes and if you don't play games and your system hangs too, do you get a blue screen with error codes on it? (e.g. 0x0000000E), if so it could possibly be a possible driver conflict and/or a hardware problem. Try running this at a command prompt, if your on vista run it as administrator (start > all programs > accessories > command prompt > right click > run as administrator), then on the black box, type /sfc scannow. Works on XP/Vista. It should fix any corrupt system files. Try also updating the drivers for your video card and try running Everest, a free diagnostic & benchmark tool, you can find it here.

Hope this helps.

Frozen games I just bought a used laptop and i have been trying to run my games on it. But everytime it finishes the instalation, i try to play the game, and it freezes before it even opens. The laptop came with 517 mb ram and i instaled another one and now i have 760 mb ram. And it still happend. I tried a new hard drive, still the same.
