System restart even playing game gta3


If your CPU or GPU aren't capable of running the game your computer might be overheating. Restarting itself is a safety measure built into the system. Trying checking your computer CPU temperature and make sure its not getting to hot. I use CoreTemp to check things like this. It will show all the info you need for your CPU. Google the CPU model for temperature specs from Intel or AMD depending on your computer. If it seems to be getting hot make sure your fans inside the computer are operating and also blow the dust inside the machine out regularly. Only other thing i can think of is you might be hitting a bad spot in your memory (RAM) but usually that results in a blue error screen then restarting.

I have it almost installed but before i can play the game my screen changes resloution and magnifies my windows then i get an alert box telling me that the organ trail game cant be installed then it closes...


Ahh i see.... Starting with windows 2000/XP. Windows no longer supports DOS... Im kinda sad about that myself D= but it doesnt end there for you my friend. Organ trail is a great game.

My tip is for you to get a program called DOS box from source forge. Simple google DOS BOX. Install the program and run the program from within dosbox. If you dont know how to run dos box simply drag the EXE you are trying to run into the window. Give it a try and it will work trust me. GL in the game....

HI,

Navigate to updatemgr.exe in C:\Programs\Common Files. Next, rename the file. Right-click it, select RENAME and rename it to, say, updatemgr.old, save the changes and click on OK. RESTART your computer and the problem should now be solved.


Please post back if you need anymore assistance.

Divide overflow error,


if the start menu click run and enter msconfig
Click on startup and turn off all the programs
Click on Servics and turn on hide all microsoft services
Turn off all other services that are not from microsoft

restart your system
you will see the error has gone
one by one turn back on service and start up programs and restart after ever turn on to isolate which program causes the error
YOu can then leave that turned odd and turn the rest back on.

Cant init direct3d


Looks like you do not have the latest version of directx..Also make sure you have the latest drivers for your graphics card..If it still doesn't work then create a desktop shortcut for the game right-click it->Select Properties->In target box->add -opengl suffix.
Ex:If it shows "C:\Program FIles\Wow.exe" then you should make it
"C:\Program Files\Wow.exe" -opengl
Dont forget to leave a space between " and -
Happy gaming!
