There is a problem of overheating. Maybe the specs are almost exactly the same as the game requirements. So the PC still has to work hard. This causes overheating, which should not happen if it is even perfectly compatible.

So, this means that something is causing the computer to overheat. Firstly, shut down any open background programs. Also, see that the laptop vents are not blocked by any thing around. Remember to dust the heatsinks, fans and the casing. Also, the keyboard and main vents. If you can, vacuum it all and open up the casing to be sure that all the gunk is out.

Fully backwards compatible ps3 shuts down with 3 beeps and flashing red light when trying to play ps1 games


Hmmmnnn, consider the reason they pulled the rev compatible system off the market. It is possible to be getting the symptoms of YLOD without it actually happening with some games. The older games spun faster(sometimes) and made the system work harder. It could be heating up and shutting down right at the point of failure. I've seen 2 different revers compatible systems YLOD the same way. Good luck.

It may be as simple as to many running processes. Different game require different resources, CPU, Memory, Graphics. If the game has setting, adjust to a optimal setting for your machine. OR shut down unnessary processes. On a "slower" machine I use a freeware program, RAZER GAME BOOSTER to shut down unneeded programs. You can download, configure, and try it : http://www.razerzone.com/gamebooster

It might sound wierd but newer machines tend to have problems with older software. You do not give details of your system specification, but this game is not listed as compatible with Vista or Windows 7. It may work up to a point in compatibility mode but this may be the reason for it crashing. Other reasons can be that it was tested with graphics cards available at the time and newer cards may have some features not accounted for in the software, which may also cause problems.

I always play psp and sometimes the game is just hang like that. after that my psp just shutdown automatic.


That's normal. Sometimes the games are buggy and hang the PSP. When the PSP OS detects that situation, it shuts down or restart the PSP.

You can try updating the firmware but the problem is with the games.
