    Hey guys, this is my first time doing this so please be patient,


    I bought GTA complete pack from steam from steam the other day and patiently waited for the 40gb of files to download and they all ran fine but when I play GTA IV it runs fine until I shoot someone or crash in a car.


    When I shoot or crash then the screen goes black, the sound loops and the only way I can do anything is if I use task manager to shut down my pc (and even then it gets to "shutting down ..." and stays there until I hold down the power button). When I turn it back on everything is fine but I don't know why it's doing it.


    The same thing also happens when I crash in Burnout Paradise or shoot in Battlefield 3 and I have tried to unistall and reinstall all games and nothing changes.


    All drivers and games are up to date.


    Any ideas guys?




    PC Specs:


    Processor: AMD Athlon II X4 635 (2.9 GHz)
    RAM: 8GB
    Graphics: Palit Nvidia Geforce GTS 450 (1GB, DDR5)
    OS: Windows 7, 64 bit, Service pack 1

    Seems like it might be related to the sound. Have you tried changing any of those settings? You said all drivers are up to date, so I assume you updated the sound drivers.

    If the crash or shot result in bright flashes, it might still be a video problem. If that were the case, perhaps lowering the resolution or how the video is rendered might help.

    I think my sound drivers are up to date, I went into sounds (in the system tray) and clicked on my speakers properties and clicked update drivers and it said drivers are up to date.

    When I do crash or shoot the screen goes black in GTA and white in BF3
