Well, there hasnt been a post in this forum for at least a month, but its worth a try.

Everytime I try to play any game, whether it be Battlefield 3, MW3, or minecraft, or even COD4 my computer will start lagging really badly, then the game will completely freeze. Ive tried erasing everything off my computer but it still wont work, ive also tried my second graphics card and it still happens with both of those. I cleaned the inside etc... and it still freezes. I dont want to buy a new PC or pay some guy 100$ an hour to fix it but then rip me off by keeping it for 3 days.

 

Oh and I have windows 7 32-bit, 2gb of ram (still doesnt work if I add an extra 2, I tried) and on top of freezing it will also freeze on the starting windows screen for like 5 minutes before the *starting windows animation* plays.

 

Please Help!

If it freezes or hangs at the Windows start-up, it's probably a graphics card issue. Reinstall the drivers and reinstall the card itself, or you might have to get a new one.

Nope, I tried 2 differnt graphics cards and it still does it. Could it be the power supply?

Unless it's a really crappy one I don't think it would be your PSU.

As a question, how long have you had this computer? It could just be your hard drive that might need reformatting or Windows repairing if you don't want to reformat. It also could be your motherboard, but those don't tend to have those type of issues very often.

2 years, and could it be that the power supply is faulty?

Kinda late to reply, but could you post your specs? Does your computer meet the minimum requirements, especially for BF3? What are the graphics settings you're using for these games? What resolution does your monitor support? Are you overclocking your hardware? Is the hardware overheating, even if you're not overclocking? These are just questions off the top of my head..
