Well, I know i should't have, but i did. I tried to run Return to Castle Wolfenstein on the family computer, which is just a stock IBM Ativa with a K6-2 @ 475Mhz. After I ran it, just happend to glance at the reomended specs, and It said it needed at least 16 Mb of Vram Video memory, and this thing has 8Mb (SIS chipset on an ACER board.. yuk), 4 of which is shared. I tried troubleshooting everything possible exept pulling the current PSU and pluggin in another, which I plan to do tomorrow. But is it possible for the game to make the system inoperable? It froze when I ran it, and now the thin wont start , not even a blinking LED.
A shot in the dark, but try unpugging the power connector from the computer (with it off). Sometimes this allows the PS or other things to reset. Wait about 5 min then replug and try to reboot.
Good Luck, Take-Out
PS I suppose you already tried letting it cool down for an hour or so.
