RE: Calling all COMPUTER Whizzes!!
Okay Lissa, you need to post a little more info for the guys to help you.

Be me more specific about what kind of computer you are using.

How much memory (RAM) does it have?

Are you running the games from the hard drive or CD-ROM/DVD-ROM?

Does it happen at a particular point or erratically?

And finally I will edit the title you've chosen. A more problem-specific title will garner more attention from the techies . . .


Title edited /admin

Wildcard is awesome.

i'm assuming that you haven't made any upgrades to the computer so just provide the make/model info.

also: what game?

hmmm... that was kind of cute. not the monitor... the computer.

to be perfectly honest, the usual culprit of computers shutting themselves down is heat related.
