Are all your drivers updated?  Have you tried Windows Update?

Also, there's something about a debug version of "directx.cpl".  Have you tried re-installing DX9?

I think it's really not a graphic issue... maybe these games use too much memory... maybe the computer gets overclocked? plzzz any thing would come handy...

I doubt it's a performance issue; my comp is a little slower than yours and it still runs all of those games fine.

Have you tried reinstalling DX9 yet?  Also, have you played any older Unreal-based games in thae past and had trouble (eg, Unreal Tournament)

Ok, i'v been searching deeper now, and i found out the following:

Most of the times, i ussualy crashes exactly 8 minutes after i started the game (after i launched the exe), now but some times (happens rarely) it crashes right when i start it...

Second, i found out it's a sound card issue, seems that people like me had these problems too and all had similar sound card or another that is very old, but none of them posted the solutions...

now plz can anyone search deeper for me? and not to say "buy another sound card" cause i'm not planing too in the near future... so please guys, help...

As I can't open any attached files, do you have an onboard sound card ? If so, try disabling it in the BIOS.

If you have an PCI/ISA sound card, try uninstalling it, take it out and see if the crash then still happens.

Are there any new drivers for your sound card ?

Thing is, when i disable sounds in ut (using safe mode) it works like charm but still... i cant hear anything, i dont have an onboard sound or atleast i dont know if i have (cause i never seend something like it on my BIOS) and i have "Avance AC97" or something...

also, i defraged yesterday the C drive, and i test ut... works! i play it for 2 hours and then im off to play AA (America's Army) and i play for 3 hours i think and then it suddenly freezes like before :'( i reboot, try to play AA and then in the 8 minuts zone it crashes... so my problem is back... i tried defraging C drive again but no use...
