Game Crash

Postby JediMaster9780 » Mar 29 2008, 16:15

For some reason the game crashed in any map I'm playing. I play for maybe about 5-10 minutes and then it crashes. I turned off all of the high end effects. I'm thinking maybe its a video card problem?

For some months I played H5 and I haven't faced a problem. Now I have some serious problems. While I'm playing H5, after some minutes the game crashes and the computer turns down automatically (not restart, just turn down). I don't know what to do. The computer I play the game is a laptop Acer Aspire 6930. The system requirements of the game are by far achived by the laptop. The same problems I face while I'm playing the expansions of H5. I want to mention that the problems have arisen only recently (last month). Any suggestions? Thanks!!! :)

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game? If it was running fine until recently you might try clearing out any recently installed mods/maps to see if that helps.

Also, try shutting down all programs you don't need while you play HOMM. There is a freeware program called Game Booster that can help you do that. That may help you if the problem is background programs eating up too much memory.

I've just had a conversation with a computer specialist ( a friend of mine) and he explained me that the problem is that the laptop's fans have covered with dust and when I play a 3D game, the temperature increases rapidly and the laptop shuts down to protect the cpu (it turns down to save the processor). He advised me to clear the fans from the dust. I think he has right as the pc turns down only when I play 3D games. :D
