Sometimes When i start up Battlefield Vietnam at different times my computer will completely restart. Or which is the only problem ive had with Battlefield 1942 the computer will end the program emediatly and leave my at the desktop with Battlefield 1942 or vietnam task will be gone from the taskbar. Please i love these games i need some help :uhm: This all started after i added some new memory. I took my original memory out to show the people at the store what type i needed and i put it back in (im kinda new to working inside computers) and i thought that i was forcing the memory and and the computer was turned in with one stick half out.

You are not very clear. Did you put the Computer back to the way it was before you did anything to it? What memory do you have orginally? What did you get? Do you still have it?

Seems pretty clear I guess that Memory is the issue.

Reformat is what he means by reinstall OS. OS=Operating System though you probably knew that. My suggestion is that you do the following before reformatting however: 1. Defragment your drive. Sometimes things get so cluttered that programs cant hold their own while running. 2. Clean out the fan section. Your main computer component files are run by a set of key documents called DLL's. These DLL's emit information along the wires on the chip. If dust is in there from the fan, it can block that transmission, causing the computer to restart. 3. If that fails, just reformat. Good luck, and see ya on the battlefield!
