    Default pc dvd

    hello, I bought "The Witcher" yesterdays and started playing it for a while, but after playing it for some time the screen seems to get frozen with the music repeating it self. This has happened twice already (second time the screen became like one of those not signal old tv screen), I'm not sure whether this has something to do with direct x or it might be something to do with the game being a cd dvd (first time I play one of these).

    OS: xp home
    Graphic card: radeon X 1600xt
    sound card: blaster audigy 2 ZS
    dvd rom: well is a sony dvd rewriter, but I lost the box so I don't remember its full name model.
    memory: 2 gbs

    so, if you get any ideas of what I can do to solve this problem I'll be really grateful.

    new problems,
    well this time while playing the game my monitor's menu started to pop up every 20 seconds or so (nothing was pressing the menu button on it), and after that my monitor started telling me the the cable might be unplugged (this used to happened a lot with my old graphic card).

    ok is there a technical answer to this or is my desktop hunted? is there a way that my monitor is a piece of shit and is causing all this problems?.

    please help me I really want to play this game.

    It's possible your video card is overheating and malfunctioning. That's the only thing I can think of that could cause all of these weird video problems and for your monitor to stop receiving a signal.

    Check that your video card's fan is spinning properly, and that it's not clogged with dust. If the fan is making a buzzing or grinding noise, its bearings are probably worn out. Also, look for some program on the net that might be able to tell you the temperature of your video card.
