Every time I start the game, my computer just shuts off after about 3 minutes of play.

Here are my specs:
Windows 7 (64-bit)
Intel i3 550 (which is dual-core at 3.2 GHz)
6 GB DDR3 RAM
ATI Radeon HD 3600

I updated my graphics card driver, but it didn't help. As far as I can tell, my various Visual C++ Expresses are up to date. I've also reinstalled .NET, though I haven't tried the game yet after that. I'm hesitant to keep experimenting haphazardly, since this can't be good for my computer. So I'm hoping you guys have some ideas.

Welcome to the forum. sorry for the late answer.

So you can start the game and start playing? It then crashes to the desktop?

Please run the dxdiag and post the result.

Please post the settings.txt and any error reports in the log.

No, the computer actually shuts off.

There's nothing you can do about it regardless, though. Yesterday I played the Cities in Motion demo and the exact same thing happened. So it has to be a hardware issue.

Thanks for the response anyway though.
