While the computer is booting up press the F4 or F8 key repeatedly (Depending on which version of Windows you are running) This will open up your bios menu and you can change pretty much all your settings from there. Just be very careful while you are in there and do not alter any settings that you are unsure about as it may be extremely difficult to repair them.

SOURCE: unwanted shut down

Why are you going that route?
have you ever defragged the computer?

Try starting up in safe mode and run it that way.

Will 1944 across the rhine run on Windows Vista Ultimate?

i can run 1944 atr fine now on windows 7
- it does just involve using Dosbox - which is an awesome program that can run most ms dos games and allows for alot of tweaking so the game runs perfectly.
get dosbox, its free - and then read up on how use it
you can then just mount the cd drive or cd image in dosbox and install the game from there. - you can then even just make a shortcut with added commands that will run the game by just clicking on the short cut
make a conf file for the game - i found that switching cpu to normal and having cpu type as a 'pentium_slow' works well

It wont install on windows xp

Trying installing the game in compatibility mode by right clicking on the EXE file on the medium used to start the install for the game and click properties. A window should pop up with a tab called Compatibility. Under compatibility mode click the check box to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" In the drop down menu click Windows 95. Then try to run the install again.

I have armor command but can't get it to work on xp sp2 despite trying every setting combo in the compatibility window. how do i get it to work?

WinXP SP2:I've tried other systems too with no luck either. However, I've had this working (almost properly = every once in a big while it would hang and reboot was the only recourse) using an Intel D845GEBV2 motherboard with a 2.0GHz intel P4 w/ 1GB ram. I've found that the trick is the AGP card. The system stayed up long enough to play for hours. I had a Rosewill AGP Radeon ATI 9200SE video card. Apparently the 'rage' :) was AGP at the time this game hit the streets (1998) and this game is very AGP touchy.
I've also tried to run this on my P4 641 OC to 4.0GHz with 2GB ram with a Sapphire Radeon 9600 Atlantis AGP 8x video and ... no go. Similar issues with hand and config.
Right now I have it working on a just built Seattle 2 PII 440BX ATX motherboard (aka MICRON PC). It has a PIII @ 650MHz and 768MB ram. Boot to MS-DOS or Win98SE2. The video card on this one is an ATI Rage Mobility-L. A dinky little card, you can find one easily on EBAY for really cheap, but mine (bought on EBAY years ago for like $48) was out of an older MICRON system (not this Seattle 2 MB). Works fine. Really had to look on web hard to find a video driver for it ...This config also works great for these DOS games that I miss ... DOS Protected mode box within Win98 works perfect for Commander Keen and the original Duke Nukem!

1701 AD starts then the computer shuts down and restarts

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.

Game keeps shutting down while playing

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.

Bad command or file name

You need to navigate to the directory where the game was installed. When you open your DOS prompt you may be in the WINDOWS directory. You should be able to find the application and open it by double-clicking since you're using Windows 98. The instructions you're reading are for DOS.
