1701 AD starts then the computer shuts down and restarts
When I start the game it goes all the way through the start up then just before the game menu opens my computer shuts down and restarts. All hardware is set up and within the parameters of the game. Any help?

Make sure your computer is up to date and at the exact or higher server. Any lower or different computer than the specifications will not let the game progress. If you got this used, than you will have to make sure that it isn't scratched or anything, that could stop it. To my computer to it did that. Are you sure that it shut down? Not just make the screen totally black? No versions of this game have been made to work on windows vistas. Make sure there are no viruses in the disc or computer.

step 1: restart windows
step 2: while its booting up press F8 (if you see a black screen that says windows and a green loading bar apears you waited to long)
step 3: you will be prompted for how to start up_press ~start windows in safe mode~
step 4: type in administrator and log in (hopefully your settings allow you to type in the username if thats not set you have to go into the computer profile settings<explained later in this letter>)
-logging on in safe mode allows you to see if in fact you do have a master administrator-
step 5:if in fact a master admin is present restart windows normally and type in administrator and log on. and play your game there
also-------in your master administrator you should go to account setting and change settings privacy settings in the account you currently use
*how to change log in screen settings* log on on any administrator account go to control panel, user accounts, change the way users log on or log off, unlick welcome screen, save changes and restart your comuter.
