Hi, my computer or just the game itself shuts off when i try to play the 3 point shootout, only in the dynasty mode. This started happening after i had disconnected the ac power supply from teh motherboard to get a good look at why it was making noise. I reconnected the cords that i had disconnected again, as was recommended to do from someone. The program still shuts off.

Hello shinhay,

Disconnecting the power cable from the motherboard shouldn't have any effect, unless of course you did that when the PC was switched on.

What are your system specs?
Have you updated all your drivers?
Do you get any errors logged in the event logs?
Have you turned off automatically restart on errors to check for a blue screen?

A system spontaneously rebooting in the middle of a game is usually either thermal or power related. Since you mentioned that this didn't start untill after you disconnected and reconnected a power cord, I'm gonna say that your power supply is on it's way out. The good news is that power supplies are cheaper than ever these days. The bad news is that you have to replace it.

My system specs...
Sony Vaio
Intel Pentium 4 Processor 3.2 GHz
800 MHz FSB, 1 MB L2 Cache
512MB PC-3200 400MHz DDR

250GB 7200 rpm hard drive

ATI RAdeon 9200 128MB

I've only had this computer for about 2 years, unless that means its a long time.
I'm not sure if my drivers are updated. If anything, i dont think i did any of the things you (ZEUS_GB) suggested. My power supply has been kind of lately. It makes a really annoying sound until i bang the table or something to stop it. Sometimes it never ends. I don't know if that's a sign that my power supply isn't working properly.

Two years is a *really* long time for a computer, however NBA Live '05 should run just fine on it. Update your video drivers and see if that helps.
