Out of the Blue

The news is reporting that our area is due to be hit this week by the heat wave that's been cooking the west coast. This is not great news, as our weather was already, as the line from Biloxi Blues put it, "Africa hot."

4. PC Problems Jul 31, 2006, 10:26 strich
 
Let me ask you guys if you have any suggestions with a problem.

My wife and i have been playing Titan Quest since its release and she is suffering the brunt of TQ's technical issues. Constant reboots and shutdowns kick her out of the game, sometimes after less than a minutes to upwards of 45 minutes. There doesn't seem to be any constant in why it's doing this. We've posted on the TQ boards and are awaiting an answer, but I'm looking thru event viewer and trying to update drivers for all software and hardware. Does anyone have any other suggestions for places to look or maybe some piece of software that will analyze her pc and find issues? We'd like to avoid reinstall of the OS (XP) and all software seeing as how we don't know if the issue is hardware or software related.

Any suggestions?

thanks!
