  1. Do you have the latest drivers loaded for the video card and do you have the Windows dvd handy so you can put the disk in and trouble shoot to see if maybe there are some windows files missing.
  2. I first installed the drivers from the disk,and then I installed the latest ones,and no I do not
  3. Does the game start laging very badly and then freezs then it crashs to desktop? Then you get the messages? I am just curious.

    I had something like that but with out all the stated messages. Mine said something different Had to shut down do to a unknown problem accurd I can't remember the rest.

    It turned out to be a over heating problem with my GT 220 and my CPU i3 at the time playing games.
