Guild wars crash

Okay, so i have had guild wars for about two years now. great game, and i never had any problems before. but a while ago (i dont know how long... probably aroung 5-6 months) i lost internet and didnt get it back until the other night. so i booted up guild wars and it kept freezing in such a way that i could move my mouse and it would turn green when i moused over other people but the picture on the screen was frozen... i could easily fix this by minimizing guild wars then bringing it back up. it also had other various glitches, so i deleted guild wars off my comp. and re-installed it. now it works without the glitches but i still have the screen frozen-green mouse problem but only rarely. my main problem is that after anywhere between 10-20 minutes of play my computer will randomly restart on me. i will get no warning or error message the screen will just go black and the comp will reboot. what do i do about this?

What edition of guild wars should I get next?

why? one word...HEROES!
thier like henchmen but u can decide what they equip
its better than hench but not by much,

eye of the north is out now so id get that next if you want
more lvl 20 content it only opens a new area though so no new classes, but you work at titles and get new elite armours

GW2 is comming out in a year, so if you dont have a income
wait for GW2

GW's content so far is mostly overrated

ps: dont let anyone fool ya, Assassins **** bad, unles u have a specific weapon and skills setup
now if they had more armour or faster base-attack speed theyd be perty good. You will get more information in here about guild wars next.

Theoretically, your computer should have no problem running these programs. However, after researching the Dell Precision 450 specs, I found that it is a business machine with a quadro graphics card. This card is not targeted at gaming applications such as an Nvidia GeForce. This link will explain the differences. The graphics card itself may be causing the problem if the graphics drivers are crashing. This manifests as everything going black and no keys working. Also, if it is the stock card, it barely has enough graphics memory to run guild wars. You could try updating the graphics drivers from Nvidia. You could also get a new graphics card that is designed for gaming.

Another solution that you could try is updating the games by downloading patches for your games.

It sounds to me like you don't have a video card with enough memory. Those games require a very advanced video card. Check the specifications on the games and see if you need to upgrade.

Installed act of war direct action and is tells me

*install patch V1.06
*close all other programs running on the backround
*run the game with with administrator account or with administrator rights
*run the game exe with Windows XP compatibility mode (if you are running Vista/Win7)
*There are a lot of reports that this game will not like more than 3GB of RAM, so limit RAM size to 2GB by editing Win XP (boot.ini) or Vista/Win7 (bcdedit) or by removing some memory sticks
