Windows 7: issue where my game was locking up

issue where my game was locking up

All,

well i found a fix for the issue i was having with one of my games. I was only locking up while on certain maps and servers. I also have a killer xeno pro installed, my simple fix, after trying to figure it out since last December was to just switch the mode of my card from game mode to application mode and problem solved. J

Just wanted to share it with everyone who may be having a lock up issue and cant figure it out. I dont know what switching it from game to app mode did specifically, all i know is it fixed my lock up issue.

Hi gvelazquez,

Thanks for sharing this! I'll mark this thread 'Solved' so other community members know they don't need to assist you. Can you please share what game you were initially having issues with?

Cheers,
