Having problems with your Gateway PC Desktops ?

While playing video games or watching videos on youtube my desktop will glitch/freeze. The screen distorts and freezes.


Answers :

Do you have a graphics card built onto the motherboard which uses "shared" memory? If so, your options are twofold: Add RAM to the maximum your motherboard will support and/or add a separate video card that has it's own memory. Newer games and YouTube both use video memory and system resources like no other application.
