Try turning your graphics settings down to lowest and see if you still have the problem.  If the problem does persist, I would recommend adding some more RAM to the system, another 2GB would be ideal.  It could also be the video card overheating, so make sure your case is dust-free and the fans are working properly.

Xbox 360 will not save beyond certain point


Is your HDD maxed out. It will limit the amount of data you can save. try deleting old files or saved games you don't need anymore.

Lenovo z560. laptop abruplty shuts down while playing video. it plays for a minute and shuts down.


you have a classic over heating issue my friend. it's either you get the unit's cooling system cleaned out, or see if you can get a better cooling system.

9 times out of 10 it is an overheating issue, but if this game is also online, then you may have a malware creating this issue when playing the game.

try to run a good AV like ESET's AVs. try this link i have, you may be interested in getting a good level of security when online: http://bit.ly/otZ0jN

Ooh, I am on tenterhooks for how this relates to operating systems rather than a tomb raider forum at the publisher's site or under a Wii Software category.

I am having problems with my nvidia geforce 6800 gt. When i turn on my pc everything is fine but whenever i play games for ex. Bioshock or counter strike source my pc screan turns off and says no signal....


i suspect youyr graphics card is heating up and shutting off to prevent damage. windows will also shut it off but usually repaorts that it did. here is my reccomendation:
1. open side case and place a fan right nest to it. if this makes it work then heat is definitely trhe culprit. if so install a video card cooler or another exhaust fan.
2 turn all the graphics options down on the game. shut anti aliasing off and all options to minimun. then try to play if it still shuts off then your card may be on its last leg from over heating. the 6800 gt was ok when it came out but todays games require more. in fact the newer games won't run on a 6800 gt.
the big thing is heat. the standard 6800 gt just doesn't get rid of enough heat. in fact the 9800 gt i had overheated and burned out. i stay away from gt and now use gtx cards. they have a better cooler and ususally the vent outside of the case.

When loading saved game data I get a Data corrupt message


You need to make sure you have updated the PS3 as well as the games. You said you wait until the game is done saving, well just to make sure, check the HDD light isn't flashing (writing information). Also you should not just shut down from the game, quit game then shut down the system. If you are shutting it down with the switch in the back, shut down "softly" (holding down the PS button and selecting shutdown) then turn off in the back.

Hi, bioshock keeps shutting down to the desktop ,im useing vista home , i here theres some sort of game fix but cant seem to find it ,please help thanx


You may be using too much memory, so it doesnt have enough memory to do its functions. Un-install anything you dont use.
If this doesnt work, get the graphics card which is RECOMMENDED, NOT MINIMUM, simply because some games dont work on minimum.
If this still doesnt work, then get it checked out at a nearby Electronic Repair Store, and see what they make of it.

Computor game


Your can copy the saved game file in the saved games folder of SIMS to another location so your kid need not repeat her game. Then just re-install the SIMS application and copy back the saved game file to the saved game folder of SIMS.
