  ROB_BUSWELL 14:05 31 Mar 2003

when playing a number of games lately, my system crashes me back to my desktop after a short period of time in the game. all of my drivers are up to date as far as i know, i have no updates to do in windows.
i'm running windows xp, games are championship manager 4, and igi2.
if anyone can solve this one i would be very grateful!!

As most games are churned out, I would look first at the game and see if there are any patches/updates on the manufacturers site.

What's your graphics card? Maybe the newest drivers aren't the most reliable. Have you tried earlier drivers?

But, do you run a broadband connection with a firewall? The reason I ask is that on some games I have played in the past, they have tried to ask the firewall for access to the internet, of course the firewall will not let them until it has asked me. This action has in the past crashed some games back to the desktop & once the game has crashed it stops asking for internet access, so you only get a brief request. Just thought you might have a similiar problem.

Probably wont work, but have you tried re-installing both games? Though that's not the problem as both wont be bad games worth a try still
