Re: E Machine T6520 shuts off when trying to play...
Check your systems cooling - often, games require more system resources, and can dramatically increase the amount of heat your system puts out. Some motherboards have a built-in reboot switch that causes them to reboot the computer once a certain temperature is reached.
When your computer is starting up, hit the "delete" key on your keyboard. This will bring you into your BIOS menu. Be very careful in here if you don't know what you're doing, as you can fundamentally alter the way your computer starts up. Look for an option marked "System Monitor" or something along those lines, and check if there is an option for "auto reboot" or "reboot computer at temperature". If it exists, try increasing it to the next suggested level and then save changes, and exit to your BIOS.
If that doesn't work, try installing new cooling fans or heatsinks according to your processor's specifications.

If your Hardware is pretty much compatible with game requirements than you have to go through some points before playing game to prevent your game from annoying issues.
- Shut down all running updates
- Remove all temporary files from your system
- You must have enough memory on disc that can support your paging memory
- Stop background running applications
- Run Reginout Utility for extreme gaming experience
- Update DX on your system
- Try putting all graphics on low
I got talonsoft eastfront II to run on my windows 7 laptop by using two pieces of software. First I use vmware player and created a virtual machine with a winxp install. Second, I ripped the original game CD using alcohol. This creates an image that preserves the special formatting that is necessary because of the SafeDisc copy protection that is used in this talonsoft game. I mount this image using alcohol since my laptop does not have an optical drive. The vmware player sees the mounted image as a normal cd drive with the original game cd in it. I can install and play eastfront II in the win xp virtual machine. I installed the 1.02 patch. No other special settings were necessary. All features appear to work with this setup. The videos play, the unit viewer works (help files with transparency does not work in win 7 normally), background music and sfx are streamed off the virtual cd.
Civ II is a fairly old game. It seems that your PC runs Windows XP or earlier. It is likely that the site you read was correct, and your computer is too new to run it. However, you may be able to get another newer version of Civ for Mac, but check the system req's for any game you try to install. I don't know for sure if this is the case, but I hope this helps you somewhat.
I had the same problem, so I switched the Auto Source feature to "Manual" and so far it's working fine for the past 2 days, if I run into the problem again I'll update this message.
On the side panel of your monitor, press the top button to access the menu, scroll down to the setup menu (by pressing the 3rd button down on the panel), press the 4th button down to enter the setup menu, scroll down to "Auto Source", use the 4th button to select, "Auto" & "Manual" are your choices.. press the 2nd button down to select "Manual" then the top button to exit the menu(s).
This monitor is set up to be able to do multi display with the software included. Utilizing both Digital and Analog signals. I'm not using this feature so I'm not sure how switching the Auto Source off will affect the performance of this feature.
Sorry friend but this game is not compatible with Vista and there aren't any patches. However you can try your luck here. Go thru the thread
