My problem is that I cannot seem to run any games that support DirectX. I can start each game and play properly for about 2 to 7 mins (varies), then the game just terminates itself and jumps right back to the desktop. Happens all the time. I am not sure whether there is a problem with directX (using 7.0) or a problem with the RAM. The games worked perfectly on my friends' computers and they use the same version of DirectX. I have changed two video cards, both supporting directX, same problem persists. So, please help, I am really getting confused by this!..
