oye! just was having a problem and wondered if you could help. while playing any game (some worse than others) they will close and exit to the desktop in about 2 seconds time. i could play for 2 hours or 5 minutes there doesnt seem to be a pattern... some games that do this are-

Rakion International
Counterstrike 1.6
Tzar (the worst one on the list, if i save before it exits and restart it exits at the same time each time)
World of Warcraft
Dark Age of Camelot
Pocket Tanks
Dark Ages
Ragnarok Online
Soldat (another REALLY bad one)
Age of Empires

I notice that a lot of those games are MMO or online. That probably doesn't have anything (or much) to do with the crashing problem, but it's an important fact.

Just wondering, why don't you have a battery and why don't you have a HD listed?
