|Hi, I have a problem with my computer, when I play a game the computer beeps two or three times then just shuts down.|
It's an old computer; I don't know the exact model, as my mother bought it, all I know is that it's an LG, running XP, bought around 2003-ish.
The game that it did this with most recently is Rome: Total War, which is a very old game, and I've played it on this computer before, so I know it can run RTW.
Before that, it did the same thing with Medieval II: Total War (again, I'd played it before on this PC without any real problems) and once with FIFA 10, though I think that still works OK (I haven't played it since, however).
This isn't the first time I've installed RTW on this PC, I uninstalled it a couple of years ago when this happened, and now I wanted to try and see if it worked.
It plays normally for about 7 minutes (I timed it), and then just beeps, then the PC goes on normally for a second, and then it beeps again and just shuts down. Recently - this happened for the first time today - it also did this repeatedly while I tried to turn the computer back on, though eventually it worked.
Thanks for any help.
