Does rebooting help fix pc game issues

I have tried to reinstall the game several times and play it in different versions other than windows eight, but the same error keeps occurring, the screen runs extremely slow, it takes minutes to process the data, and it even freezes.

The game usually comes with a minimum spec for the computer. The game may require better graphics or more memory. What is the game? What is the computer? Are you saying the game runs fine in WinXP/Win7 but not win 8?
Rebooting will only help fix an issue if the computer has been bogged down by a program (or programs) that are misbehaving. If you have a game that requires all your PC to run, you can try quitting everything that runs in the background.
Most games have options you can also tweak. Try selecting a lower screen size, lower graphic details,etc ..

SOURCE: Can't launch a new game in Pirates Of The Carribean

your computer probably cant run the game, check your graphics card, RAM, and processor speed, make sure it meets the requirements for the game or exceeds them, if one is below, the game will most likely not work

Sounds like 1- you have a virus or 2- your computer's graphics card is not sufficient for the game you are trying to play. Double check all the requirements, if you meet them you have a virus. Hope i've shed some light on the problem :)

SOURCE: "cannot connect to gamesession"

I don't think the game allows online play with 2 same cd keys...
I'm not allowed to advise you to get another cd key from the net, because that is illegal.
I guess you will need another copy of the game to play multiplayer.

What do I do to get the game to play?


This game is 12 years old and was designed for Windows XP. I would try running it in compatibility mode to see if that helps. Considering were the crash is though it would seem like the draw calls are looking for a version of DirectX that was never designed to work with whatever OS you got. If compatibility mode does not work, you may need to go as far as to install Windows XP mode (assuming you are running Windows 7) or a second partition with Windows XP on it.

There have been connection issues with game ranger since its inception,in `03.It has fallen out of favor with most gamers and is very unstable on 7.Your best bet is to reboot your rig before every section.Restart the game ranger a few times when rebooted then try to play.In my personal experience x-fire works much better.Sorry I can offer no fixes and game ranger wont any time soon.

Thanks for using Fix Ya.

After installing Medieval 2 Total War Gold, when i boot the game up i get an error message saying an unspecified error has occurred and the game will now quit. how can i fix this issue


Hello,

Sorry to hear about your trouble. I own all of the Total War series and they are very great games. I will try to get you up and running so you can enjoy that classic!

I have heard of this error coming up due to corrupt game files. Meaning, you play a campaign and after 50 turns a certain saved game will be corrupted. The solution is to delete the game file, which would cause you to lose that play time but it will fix the error.

If you have not even started playing, then most likely there was an error during installation of the game. Try uninstalling the game, reboot the computer then reinstall the game.

Another possible issue is that your machine does not meet the system requirements to play the game, thus causing it to crash. Check and make sure your system meets the minimum system requirements.

Also, make sure your computer has updated drivers for the graphics card.

Lastly, if none of the above helps you, I would recommend contacting the support team for the game.

Hi there!
There are several reasons for this, It's possible that your graphics card cannot handle the resolution you are playing at, the CPU generates too much heat on load, corrupted data on the game, power supply unit is not enough.
However, I would suggest you try lowering the resolution on the game (it may also depend on what game you are playing). Or, try reinstalling the game.
Regarding the normal windows mode, you may be referring to a different operating system like XP.
Hope this helps!

hi,
There will be no difference in performance or graphics between the pirated version and the legal version.
They both works just the same way.
And about your issue, try installing more recent driver update for your graphic card.
