Just started playing. This game is causing my computer to shut off

i'm in the middle of the tutorial and then my computer shuts off. I was able to play this game a few months ago without this problem but now after a few months I can't get though the tutorial without it suddenly shutting off my computer

anyone know what this problem is?

the problem is with your video card. you can't play the game with the one you have.

Either your video card or your processor is overheating.

I would say that's the most likely situation.

Is this a laptop or a desktop?

What processor and video card do you have?

If you have a laptop, put a stack of books in the corner of it to ventilate, and play with a monitor so you don't need to play on a tilted computer.

If your laptop still can't run it, you must have a pile of wood with a computer chip glued to it that is powered by a hamster wheel.

okay so I tried something a friend suggested and played while having my laptop directly on the fan where my AC come out. Lucky my room has it on the floor. I was able to play and finish the tutorial. This means my processor is overheating.

According to my sticker it says I have a 13-330M Processor. I'm not sure how what VC I have.

I tried playing with the fan not blowing on anything and even using a cooling pad for my laptop but it still shut off so I guess it wasn't cold enough. any suggestions?

All I really get out of recent events is that rioto was probably lying about improved performance with the graphics overhaul.

overheat 4x as much but still have the same fps. Good times.

Several problems it could be:

PSU (power supply unit) - What is it? Is it enough to support everything in your computer?

GPU (Graphics processing unit) - This could be damage or struggling to play the game. Also could be a bad driver and bad Direct X (direct X could have been damage as well)

RAM (random access memory) - your ram could be damage or its not enough to support the game and is causing the shut downs.

Heat issue - Getting too hot and computer shuts down

Software - Something you installed could be doing it.

Virus, malware, etc. . . - These as well can do it.





What I think. . . .Since you say it shuts down and not resets, its most likely a heat issue.

Go to properties in my computer, advance tab and go to start up and recovery. Disable auto restart and enable write a event to system log. OK the settings and see what it says in the "blue screen of death" or when you restart, go to help and support in the start menu and type in even log and look for it. it should be under systems and see what the red sign says.
