Lets see if this great site can help me again and keep up its 100% record. Here goes...
I got a PC given off my mother, its an old time pc, it has 1.2 athlon cpu, 250 watt psu and a 64 mb geforce 4 gfx card and 600mb ram.
Ok I recently bought monopoly for it and installed it on my main pc then on this time pc so i could play against my partner on 2 pcs, works fine on my pc, during install on the time pc the pc shut itself down and restarted mid install, didnt think out of it and tried again and it installed.
got connected and started a game with my partner, after about 15 mins the game and the time pc totally froze, had to turn it off by the switch, turned it back on tried again and within 5 mins it had froze again.
by the way when the time pc was freezing my main pc was fine and monopoly never crashes.
I have tried switching my 2 ram sticks around, only using one and i think i have ruled out it being the ram cause the game crashes regardless of how much or which stick of ram i have in.
So, I tried to install a different game (kingpin), got to 17% and the comp restarted itself.
God knows whats causing this but surely it must be either the cpu or the hdd?
If someone could help me get a defo reason for this malfunction I would be very grateful and it would save me some cash too.
Thanks in advance,
