Please someone help,this is driving me insane..
I know quite a bit about pc's overall,,done A+,N+,Server 2003,Linux+,SQL
I now work as a sql jr.dba but love my gameing.
So my problem starts: I've got a alright system at home
-ASUS P5QL-EM Motherboard
-2GB Kingston DDR2 800 Ram Running in duelline
-Single core intel 3.2GHZ cpu
-Radeon PowerColour HD5500 Graphics 512MB
-Onboard sound but using Xforce-5 5.1 channel surround
-Just 17ch display
I play a few games like - AssasinsCreed,TorchLight,Lost ect. and have no problem
but as soon as i pull a bit more graphics like - Crysis or Sniper Ghost Warrior the screen
goes black and my sound keeps repeating itself going rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!! And i have to reboot manually.. Ive got the latest drivers
,catalyst,directX and so on..
Even tried some older compaltible versions,but still does the same.. I have looked at game requirements and they follow:
Sniper Ghost Warrior-
o OS: Windows® XP (SP3) / VistaTM (SP1) / 7

I'm running a duelboot with xp and tried the games on xp aswell..Same story soooo
