Hello,

There are a number of reasons your computer would reboot when playing a game In my experience i have found it to be alot of the time a problem with system requirements and compatibility Here are a few suggestions.

- Check to make sure the game is compatible with Windows XP

- Check to make sure you have all the windows XP updates and service pack

- Make sure your video card is good enough to support the game you are trying to play.

- Check your CPU temp to make sure the game is not increasing the heat of the cpu to degree's where your computer can not handle it and it shuts down.

These are not the only reasons why but it should give you some sort of stand as to if you can handle the game or not If all of these things fail Try to find anyone else who uses the game on a Windows XP platform to see if they encounter the same problem

I hope this has been helpful to you.

Good luck
