I tried everything but every game I play plays fine and all, but after a while my sounds begin to stutter and I get low FPS and if I continue it will freeze my PC, if someone knows a solution to this I would be really greatfull

Regards, Patrick

I've seen various reports of this. However, the fixes vary by h/w. Gigabyte motherboards need a BIOS update, Nvidia display cards need new drivers, overclocked systems need to be slowed down, RAID controllers need later level s/w, all these are 'cures'. Please list your h/w configuration, it would help getting specific suggestions.

Computer Specs:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Truckee Motherboard
Intel Core i7 920 2.67 Ghz
Ati Radeon HD 4650

I'm not really good at this, but I hope this will do.

Yes, I see some of my games in X86 map, but not all my games I have in that.

Is it bad to have my games in that map then?

This an HP computer? Check THIS LINK out. I've googled the motherboard and it appears this is a somewhat common problem?

Might want to look HERE as well, has some suggestions to try, but if it is an HP, it seems you need revision 1.4 of the motherboard, 1.3 appears to have serious problems.

HERE is an article on a lawsuit over this board in HP's...

If not an HP, I'd still suspect the motherboard as a problem and contact the point of purchase for help. To me, this is a h/w problem that could only be resolved by a BIOS flash if possible or replacement of the motherboard.

Of course, I could be all wrong.
