Windows 7: Temporary freezing during games!

19 Jul 2010   #11

Windows 7 x64 Home Premium

Sadly I've actually already done what you suggested and with no luck x.x I think I may have tracked down the issue though! I was digging around in event viewer and noticed some errors were popping up with my nforce network controllers. I dug further and saw that these errors were popping up alot and from memory seemed to roughly coincide with each freeze. The error wAs something along "encountered invalid network address". I did a google search and noticed that someone was having the sAme issue and same error in one of the gAmes that is freezing on me.

I'm going to pick up a cheap Ethernet card today and try using it instead of the one in my Mobo and with any luck that'll do the trick.

I reformatted again back to vista to test and it's still doing it. I'm so frustrated I'm wanting to toss it out the window...

7 Ultimate x64

If you're back on Vista, then my memory of that OS is too hazy to help. I was going to ask if you've tried the multi-media class scheduler reg edit... but... I guess that can wait till you reinstall 7.
