    Hi, I have been recently having problems with my computer, but only
    with a certain game, I heard that underclocking slightly might fix the
    problem, is there anyone that can tell me how to underclock my
    computer?

    Here are my specs:

    AMD Athlon XP 2800+
    2.08 GHZ
    512 MB DDR-SDRAM
    Model : ASUSTeK Computer Inc nForce2 AGP Controller
    Front Side Bus Speed : 2x 166MHz (332MHz data rate)
    Total Memory : 512MB DDR-SDRAM
    Memory Bus Speed : 2x 166MHz (332MHz data rate)

    Video System
    Monitor/Panel : hp mx703 Color Monitor
    Adapter : RADEON 9600 SERIES
    Adapter : RADEON 9600 SERIES - Secondary

    Lower multiplier, or lower FSB speed. Although, I'd try raising vcore a
    little first. There's no reason it shouldn't be stable at default speed.

    Which game is it? There are a couple newer games that require updated
    video and sound drivers. Make sure you have the current ones. I ran into
    this problem with Half Life 2 as well as Call of Duty. At the time I was
    trying to play Call of Duty I had a Radeon 9600. I updated video and
    sound drivers and the game stopped crashing. With Half Life 2 I was
    running a Radeon 9800 Pro which is currently in my system. Also
    defragging the hard drive stopped the stuttering in HL2. I know you
    didn't mention that problem but thought I'd throw it in there. Good luck.
