Randomly when playing Halo, I'll get a Blue screen with a bunch of letters and words on it, and then my computer will prompty restart itself. I can't really read the words since the computer restarts almost immediately after I see it. The problem usually occurs after I load a game or a few seconds after I load one, but it happens randomly too. I haven't attempted to play Multiplayer yet, since I want to finish the Campaign first. My disk had an error, and when I installed the game, it said that Bloodgulch.map had a problem, so it didn't install that file. Could this be a cause of the problem? That's a multiplayer map, so it shouldn't interfere with the SP part of the game, right? After the Blue screen of Death and the restart, I'll try to go start the game again. It gives me the option of running the game in Safe Mode, and usually Safe Mode never gives me any problems. If there isn't a way to correct the error, is there a way to always start in Safe Mode? Oh, and I'm running Halo 1.00. I haven't been able to get any of the patches installed, because they always say that there's something wrong with my install (the missing Bloodgulch map).

What version of Windows are you running? I know the fix for 2000 but not XP.

You need to clean out your pc [dust etc...] or get a new one...

Ah, so it's a hardware issue then, and not a software one?

No.

It's not hardware, it's a software issue. Try updating all drivers, and getting a few extra fans for your PC. It could be a fail safe, shuting down you computer because it's getting to hot, safe mode dosen't use quite as much "power" so to speak. THis happens with laptops alot.

I guess it's a hardware issue, but thats my best guess.

And just so you know, Org, people just don't "buy" new computers for teh hellve it.
