An update might not solve the problem. It could be that you have a dual-core processor. Some of the older games will only run with a single processor active. Here is how to disable the second processor core:
Open the start menu, click on Run,type in msconfig and click on OK

In the System Configuration window click on the start sub menu and the on Advanced Options button.

In the second window that appear, you should be provide with an option for enabling and disabling the number of processors you want to use. You need to select "1" for the NUMPROC box.

Validate your entry by clicking on OK.

Restart your PC and it should be fine.

When you are through playing Primal Prey you can follow the same procedure but select "normal startup" and restart your computer.

Hope this solves the problem.

    Ok, my game was doing the same tell i switched my computer to use one processor and set the game up to run on windows98/me instead of my vista. Game worked beautifully for long time until I did my very first trophy hunt mission... soon as I got back through the time portal with a successful hunt the game crashes and then crashes again every time I try to open it.... I made sure I have latest video card drivers installed and I have the latest DirectX installed as well... not sure what else there is for me to try. If you or anyone else has an idea please feel free to share! Thought about uninstalling and then reinstalling but will avoid that if possible since I just went though the trouble of unlocking/buying all the items and weapons. Took forever too since I lost a few from a few deaths.... fing T-Rex....

Write click on the game icon or wherever the game start-up icon is. Click on "run as Administator". Alternatively if that doesnt work then there is a windows compatibilty mode for programs that were designed for xp or other operating system

My acer aspire 5738g keeps shutting down when i'm


Sorry you are having troule. It sounds as if it is getting hot and protecting itself. Games are very cpu intensive and this causes heat. The cheap fix is an under cooler. This is a cooler the laptop sits on. I have seen them at Best Buy for under $20

Unwanted Shut-off


First Charge up you battery while the computer is off. Once fully charged unplug the adapter and play the game...see if it shuts down. If not replace that ac adapter. If it still shuts down... Your unit is overheating most likely. When you play high tech games which cause the processor and fans to run harder once it gets to hot. And most times you can hear the fan running loud on your laptop. 1. check the system requirements on the game 2. Are you overclocking your processor, check your bios 3. Lower the graphics settings and features in your game.. see if it shuts down 3.Or while you are running the game do the follow hit ctrl, alt, del buttons at the same time. A task manager box will pop up. Click on the tab Performance.....what is your cpu usage? 100% if so it's running the proccessor hard. Now in the same box click on Processes, then user name, you will then see all processes that are running at that time. If you want to play the game off line...only!!! you can stop some processes from running. On the bottom right hand corner of your screen by the clock you will see icons that load up at startup. Right click the ones not in use, like virus scan, firewall, other background applications that are running by right clicking over the icon and exiting or closing the application. Now keep in mind before you go back on line you should restart your computer so your security software will reload. Other reasons would be internal cleaning, fan, heatsink replacements and so forth. Which may need to be performed by a professional repair shop. Now they do have a laptop colling pad which have worked for some people. Also these laptops can overheat quickly, do not sit them on beds, and your lap when using ventilation is important. And also you might still want to have that ac adapter checked out. If all else fail... restart you computer in safe mode...try running the game..see if it shuts down. Good luck with your games
