    hi nina

    thanks for your response. it switches off when i play mame 32 games like pac gal, pocket gal etc. i didnot have this problem before. but it never switches off if i surf the net or run other websites or watch movies. also if i play other online games it doesnot switch off but only if i play mame 32 games. these games used to work ok before



    operating system is windows xp



    i have this notebook for 2 years



    i never had this problem before



    mame 32 used to work ok before,



    only recently this problem arose



    i didnot upgrade it



    only i installed new battery 6 months ago as the old one was finished





    i have installed windows xp again. i am having same problem with mame 32 games. i received this error message from windows some days ago



    Blue screen error caused by a device or driver
    You received this message because a hardware device, its driver, or related software has caused a blue screen error. This type of error means the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from potential data corruption or loss. In this case, we were unable to detect the specific device or driver that caused the problem.

    The following troubleshooting steps might prevent the blue screen error from recurring. Try them in the order given. If one step does not solve the problem, then move on to the next one.

Hello Person. Without knowing more details, could be a memory problem. Power off your notebook and disconnect all cables. Turn upside down and remove the memory cover. Remove and reinsert memory card. They are inserted in an angle. Hope this helps. If not, please provide details such as any error messages, does "shut down" mean power off or lock up. Does the notebook work when not playing games ? Which games ? Did the problem just start or was it a problem since you owned the notebook ? Any changes performed to the notebook, such as upgrade ? What operating system (Windows Vista, etc.).

    Hi.

    Thanks for all the details.

    Since you are not experiencing any problems with your notebook, but just with Mame 32, I would suggest removing and reinstalling Mame 32. Remove from Add/Remove in Control Panel and if they have an upgraded version for Windows XP, download and install. They may have made a change to their software that is affecting your system.

    Again, hope this helps.

    Well, with the additional info, I'm going back to my first suggestion - memory. Since it is not an app problem. Reseat (remove and reinstall) memory, first. Try the online games, again. If still a problem, remove and test memory modules one-at -a time, to see which one may be faulty. Replace bad memory.

if you desperately want to play nancy drews that have that problem, there is a way but this way youl have no sound but the game will still play.
Go into the directory where you installed the game and then o into the game.ini file. it should open in a notepad.
go to sound system is active=1.
change the 1 into a 0. then enjoy. the game may have no sound but its still the game ayyy
nd dont try and change the volume or else the game shut down.

Xbox 360 shuts down on its own


This is a built in temperature overheating contermeasure. Make sure your xbox is not in an enclosed area or on a carpet. If posssible, place a fan next to it and see if that gets you increased playtime. If it does, then you know its a problem with it overheating.

Is this only playing a specific game? Every Game? Demos? Listening to Music? Watching Dvds?

Playing a game puts the most stress on the 360.
