This could be a hardware problem on my end, but I will bring it up in case I am not alone.


my system

e8500
ati 4850
4GB ram


windows 7 64 bit


latest graphics / direct x drivers



Basically, the game starts and loads just fine. But after a few minutes, no matter what, my system crashes.


The precise sequence of events are as follows. My screen goes black, I can still here the sound and music playing in the background, it is as if my display just failed. Then a few moments later, I get a stuttering noise from the audio as if things have crashed.

No blue screen, no black screen, it just seems to be a persistent system crash after a few minutes of playing the game.


Is this some hardware quirk on my end? Or am I not alone and someone else is experiencing the same thing?
