    Computer beeps and resets when playing old game...?


    When I tried to play the old game of Myst after a few minutes my computer would always beep and crashed (instantly reset).

    I have Award BIOS and accordgin to some websites the alternating high/low beeps I heard one or two seconds before the crash means exactly: "Either the CPU is not seated properly or the CPU is damaged. May also be due to excess heat. Check the CPU fan or BIOS settings for proper fan speed." I don't know why it only did that with the crappy old game of Myst... I do crazy things with my PC and my temps are always fine even with my OC. Once I got a look at the temps while it was beeping like that and they were perfectly nomal (for me 56 is normal, and my warning beep is set to 66 and I know the beep is different anyways...)

    So guys... was Myst doing something bad to my CPU or is something wrong with my computer??? Well also just wondering cuz I went back to stock speeds and Myst works fine..? When it was OC'd it survived StressPrime for a few hours before I decided it was enough and it never crashed on me...

    BTW: Myst sucks balls...

    So let me see if I got this right. When you had it over clocked it did this right?

    Ya... well it was always overclocked. Then I installed the game and it started doing this for no reason. I thought it made sense because it was starting to get into summer temperatures and my comp was overheating but if I can play Need For Speed UG 2 and other even more demanding games like Doom 3 nothing happens. (No beeping and crashing.) So after Myst crashed, I put my computer back to stock speeds and the weirdness stopped and I was able to play Myst.

    Is it possible my motherboard thought something was damaged on my CPU because Myst is made for really old processors?
