This is a thread to help me with my computer game problem, anyone who doesn't know the problem do not post anything stupid.

I went back to playing Unreal Tournament and played on servers (since internet gaming is more fun.) and about 10 minutes into gameplay, my controls stop responding or it freezes, I have installed everything correctly and have tried reinstalling and uninstalling. Here are my specs

P4 2.6 ghz processer
256 MB DDR RAM
ATI Radeon 9600 Pro (128 MB DDR, running Direct3D.) at 4x
Windows XP Professional Service Pack 1a
MSI 648FX Neo Series Motherboard

This is a basic representation of my computer, can any1 find a solution to fix this problem :D I would be grateful

Diablo 2, but that a 0x0a error where your modem finds something wrong with the algorithms about the site and cannot read it properly

Serious Sam 1 and 2, and Unreal Tournament, basically the games that involve 3D maps and enemies using Direct3D as a video device. I cannot use OpenGL since it is meant for 3Dfx and Voodoo and TnT cards. I have installed DirectX9.0b

When my friend was over, he thinks my motherboard isn't too combatiable with my hardware, but I am going to get Norton Systemworks to try to solve the problem, and hope it works

sorry to confusedyou :D
