hello all, i recently purchased the Bf1942 complete collection. My computer far exceeds the minimum requirements but it is having a problem. i havent been able to play the game for more than 21 minutes(i timed it). after about 20 minutes my computer just completely reboots itself. Ive tried reinstalling several times and i always make sure there are no extra processes running. kinda annoying, and i like the game, especially online. id like to fix it but if i cant get it goin im just gonna buy another game. just when im about to reach optimal fun it reboots, WTF? any ideas , suggestions are greatly appreciated.
I think it could be a heat issue. I also think it's either your cpu or your video card overheating. I had the same problem so I installed more fans in the case and now it works great.

I think brett is right. Especially if your using a laptop. Make sure you computer as room to circulate the air (usually underneath). Try propping books underneath it. If you are working on a desktop, than you probably need more fans like brett said.

Yes, I also agree with Brett. I had a problem like that with another game where the computer would just freeze or reset after 30 minutes of people. I am pretty sure this was an over heating problem. Try cleaning the dust off behind your computer (air ways) so that air can come through smoothly. If that doesn't help, all I can suggest is open your computer, and put a big fan next to it see if that helps. If it does, than try to install more fans like Brett did.

It could also be a driver issue. What video card do you have? Or what brand, and model is your computer? (ie Dell XPS 5000, etc...)
I have recently had the same problem as the others, but with a twist. The dust was caked under the Graphics Card's cooler. Even a can of air could not dislodge it all. So I had to take it apart, and dust it manually.
