    Angry Lock-Up in games

    So I was playing Morrowind and shortly after I started playing, the game locked up while I was moving. I was stuck moving and Ctrl+Alt+Delete didn't help, Esc didn't help. So I restarted my computer and it works fine. Then I go to play Painkiller and a few levels in the same thing happens. How do I fix this?

    The problem is, you can't fix it. The vast majority of lockups are due to sloppy programing practices on the part of the game developer... Are issues that can cause lockups include power supply glitches, hardware overheating, etc., etc.

    Good Question!!! About the only thing you can really do is complain to the company that produced the game and see if they have any updates, or recommendations (such as installing newer graphic card drivers)
