    Default PC constantly breaking when gaming

    Hi all

    I'm having some serious problems with my computer recently, this is happening about 4 or 5 months now.

    When I'm playing in my computer (any game), the game constantly breaks. The break lasts 4 or 5 seconds, and the interval between the breaks are like 1 or 2 minutes... So, as you can see, this is always breaking, and it's really hard to play anything in this conditions...

    I don't know why this started happening, but I really need a solution.

    I'll wait for any helps,

    Stay well

    XP.

    By the way, I was wrong. It even breaks at desktop, even if I'm not seeing videos or gaming. It breaks in whatever I'm doing.

    I think it's dust, old graphic drivers or RAM, because the computer is cleaned.

    Tomorrow I'm gonna clean the dust, update the graphic drivers, etc.

    Then, I'll post here saying if it worked or not.

    Thanks for your quick answers

    What are the specs of your PC, and what game(s) are you trying to play?

    Download HijackThis from here

    Save it and run it from your desktop.

    Does it happen in safe mode? Tap F8 on boot and select "Safe mode" see if it freezes any more. And look for nay exclaimation marks or errors in the event log. Run>eventvwr.exe. Copy and paste the error code here

    It happens in all games I play here.

    My computer is very low on the specs.

    But here they are:

    CPU: AMD Sempron, 1800 MHz (9 x 200) 3000+
    Graphic: Geforce 6200
    RAM: DDR 1GB
    Disk: 120GB
    Motherboard: ASUS K8V-MX

    Thanks for the help guys.
