    Dear friend,

    There are two reasons behind this problem:

    1. A hardware problem:
    There may be a possibility of malfunctioning of a hardware of your computer. The possible malfunction are:
    -the SATA cable and power cable of your hard drive is not working properly. To solve this, disconnect the both cables and connect again after shutdown of your PC and then reboot again.
    -the SATA cable and power cable of your CD or DVD-ROM drive is not properly attached. To solve this, disconnect the both cables and connect again after shutdown of your PC and then reboot again.
    -the RAM of your PC is damaged. If your PC have not boot after that incident then there are more than 50% chances that your RAM is malfunctioned. To solve this, remove the RAM and replace it with a new one. If you have two RAM then interchange their slots or you can try putting one RAM at a time and then another one. If your RAM is in warranty you can replace it without any charge from your vendor.

    2. Window-Cache problem:
    This is a window problem. Cache is the memory used by window to store files of different window applications, temporarily, in order to enhance speed of the transfer of files to applications . In this problem, either the cache left for your window is not sufficient, or you have overcrowded cache.

    To increase cache (in Windows 7):
    -Click on the start menu Start menu, and then click Accessories and then Run type the command in the box: regedit
    -The registry editor window will open. Go to the key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Memory Management.
    -In the right column of this window find the "LargeSystemCache" and then double-click on it to open. A new window- "edit DWORD value" will appear.
    -Enter value data as 1. Choose base as hexadecimal.
    -Reboot your PC to apply the changes you have done.

    To empty the cache,
    -Type "temp" in the run command box and then press Enter. A new window will appear. Select all the files in that window and delete them.
    -Then again go to the run command box and type "%temp%" and then press Enter. Select all the files in new window appeared and delete them.

    Tip: Increase your RAM, if possible, to play your games smoothly.

    May this help you !
