    Almost everytime I press X, the screen freezes and then turns black. My PC notifies me of a GFX card error that it recovered from.
    This only happens in some areas of games, such as when I get to choose a track in Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec and choosing NEW GAME in Kingdom Hearts.

    Can anyone help me with this?

    EDIT: Changing the plugin's settings to the newest DirectX in software mode fixed this. Cutscenes run at full speed with short, random slow downs. In game is a bit slow.
    EDIT 2: For now I'll play it in software, but can someone help me get hardware to work? It's faster.
    EDIT 3: System specs;
    Manufaturer: TOSHIBA
    Model: Stellite L355
    Processor: INtel Pentium Dual CPU T3400 @ 2.16GHz 2.17GHz
    RAM: 3.00 GB
    System type: 32-bit Operating System

    You may want to ask on their forum. I've never got it to render as fast as the console. I think computers are about 3 years behind were they need to be to emulate that platform. Same for Wii games on the PC, all but the simplest have lag. GC games run fine.

    Basic Specs:
    AMD 9550 Quad-Core
    4GB Ram
    9800 1GB DDR3
    1TB 7600RPM HD

    That's because your AMD Phenom 9550 is a Phenom I, those were really bad.^

    I don't think the Main Board processor is the main problem in this case. It's more on the graphics card.

    Possibly. Remember that it happens when doing certain things in the menus of games.
