Hello,
For some reason, i am unable to run wacraft 3 with the following specs

model:satelite l655d processor: AMD turion dual-core processor 2.40 ghz installed RAM 4 gig 64 bit, Windows 7

game was running fine prior to vacation, and even during vacation; at first i thought maybe something messed up the graphics card during flight and it was overheating, but temp shows normal 50-60c;

what can be wrong and how do i diagnosis? this game is very old and should have run fine

the only thing that i can think of is something happened during the laptop restart; I used to have it hibernate/sleep instead of shut down and after the restart this begans to happen

Did you have any windows updates that took effect upon the restart?

What error code do you get?

Hi :) 

Run system restore to BEFORE the windows updates and see if that cures it...

All the best Brett :)
