This question was answered on August 6, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Something is affecting the game from being able to load right and stay up, a program could be opened that is corrupting the game or there maybe something wrong with that cd rom, it may be defective, it may start off fine and just power down If that is all OK, you might have a video card compatablity issue Check with the game manufacturer on video requirements, particularily the RAM requirements.
