SA restarts my PC..
Posted 03 July 2013 - 03:34 PM
Whenever I start playing SA, after few minutes screen goes black and computer restarts.
But the interesting part is that when I've lowered graphics I could actually play way more than few minutes.
After I've lowered the graphics usually I could play 15 to 20 minutes, but that's the max I got.
How can I fix that?

|First of all, I want to say that my PC is 512mb RAM which is enough.|
First, that would depend on your OS, as for XP, it is enough...BUT..for Vista, 7, and 8, you need at least 1GB of Ram, as those newer OS's use more ram on their own-for example, Vista with 3GB ram uses 1.2-1.4GB on it's own and 7 uses around 900MB to 1.4GB for desktops/around 1.2GB to 2.2GB for laptops...8 is about the same as 7 for ram usage.
Next: You left out A LOT of information that is helpful in determining a solution to your problem, and they are:
What is your Processor?
What is the Processor Speed?
What is the Video card?
What is the Total Vram?
What is the Dedicated vram?
What is your OS?
Do you have the latest SP for the OS?
Any Screenshots OR Videos to prove the error/problem?
What game version do you have-ie. V1, V2, OR V3?
Is this the Retail(DVD) version OR a Downloaded version?
If Downloaded, from where?
If Retail, Is this the Original DVD being used OR a No-DVD crack OR A Copy of said DVD being used?
Any Daemon tools or the like installed on PC?-These can cause problems with games..
Any Mods or trainers?
**To find above info, go to Start, Run(if XP)/Search(If Vista, 7, or 8) and type in DXDIAG and press Enter, the first page is the OS, Ram, Processor information and the Display tab is the Video card information..**

The fixe is easy. BUY the real Game.
There is no way to 'repair' the stolen game, and anyway, this Forum doesn't help Pirates.
You may be right in that Audio problems are common with stolen games, and the fix is again to buy the real game to get the files you need.
