    Windows 10 Games Freezing


    Hello. I am having a problem with games freezing on my windows 10 pc. The games that have been freezing are GTA 3, GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas and Team Fortress 2. GTA V is working fine without any freezes. if i reboot my pc all games are working fine, the freezing usually happens when the pc have been on for a few hours and happens randomly. the games actually start but is really slow, i can skip the intro cutscenes but after that i cant do anything. I can Ctrl + Alt + Delete and close the games and the pc is working just fine its just the games that wont work. All help is greatly appreciated.

    Make sure have updated your Display Adapter drivers to the newest version.

    First 3 games listed are older can be due to incompatibility.
    GTA III is back from 2001, not compatible with Windows 10 most likely, check here compatibility mode.

    GTA Vice City... Again possible compatibility problem with older games from 2002, try compatibility mode or settings in game.
    GTA San Andreas 2004 game possible not compatible, seen this from Seven Forums

    Team Fortress 2, seems a lot of known issues with freezing up for this games in past.

    Using clients like Steam ? Also try verifying game files from Steam App, settings in client can effect certain games, steam overlays in game, try different graphic settings in these games, compatibility modes.Could be missing files within games, patches, DirectX 9. Make sure to keep them updated through the client.

    If playing GTA V well which requires decent system, think most else is fine with system.

    As easy as that, your welcome, glad that worked. Thought for sure those older games had issues besides a driver, except for Team Fortress.
