Basically my problem is I launch shogun 2 total war, with the expansion rise of the samurai. On the load up screen it will crash and restart my computer. This has also been happening to me with Deus Ex. I am super aggrivated because i spent 20 dollars all together on both of those games and I've update my bio on my motherboard and sound drivers ect, but on start up when first installing it did give me an error. having to do with adobe flash player so i updated that as well. here are my specs if it will shed some light.

Plenty of possibilities but I don't particularly like the 10gb of RAM. That is a dual-channel board so RAM should be used in matched pairs of the same density. HP (and others) have been putting 2 x 4gb sticks + 1 x 2gb stick to make 10gb. I would assume that would disable dual-channel memory support for the unnecessary extra 2gb of ram. I would remove the single 2gb module and let the board run the 2 x 4gb by itself in dual-channel. Maybe that will clear up your instability. Make sure the graphics drivers are up to date and if you got an error when installing, try uninstalling and reinstalling.

Okay will do. I was actually wondering if that would effect my computer. So you think the instability is caused by having the extra 2. If I got another 2 gb of memory would that level it out? if I decided to keep 2gb in? for now ill take it out, but can I take it out without messing with my system, as in can i take it out without having to delete some things first?

Oh and I forgot to mention that I updated my graphics card and it still crashes :(  it gave me an error message during the install for flash player. What other things could i update?

Quick note although no one is replying to me... My version of windows 7 isn't the "Normal" one so would that effect anything? Although it has been completely updated.
