Thanks so much for this I waited years and its better than I thought it would be.

After i d/l it i played it and it worked fine but the next day i went to play it and when i load the game chalice of kings the screen turns blue for a second with a bunch of words and numbers and the screen goes black and sometimes restarts the system doom 3 plays fine

 

1.8 ghz ram 1024 mb

32 bit

win xp

I've never seen TDM reboot a computer, but I have seen overheating computer components cause a reboot. If you can, check the temps before you start (eg, with Speedfan), then when you start loading the map Alt-Tab out to watch the temps up till the crash occurs. 

 

If the temps are fine, reinstall your graphics card drivers and/or DirectX. BTW, what card do you have?

The 6100 is onboard, and not a great chip for this game. It even steals system RAM, so your 1GB is really only 768MB to 896MB to begin with (128MB to 256MB dedicated to the 6100). TDM will use anywhere from 500MB to 800MB depending on the map, so you are likely doing some swapping as well. 

 

 

It should still be possible to play though, so try turning your TDM settings down in the main menu. That may reduce the overheating if it is in fact overheating, as well as increasing performance slightly.

Sounds like a "Blue Screen of Death" (fatal whole-system crash) to me, which almost always indicates a hardware problem. Could be video card, RAM, etc. It's quite common for these problems to exist in your system but not manifest themselves until you exercise a particular feature or location in memory or whatever, and they can also only happen some of the time. So Doom 3 and even Saint Lucia work fine because they're not stressing a particular part of your system, but you fire up TDM and bam!

 

It also sounds like the time/place where you're seeing the crash is changing, which is another key indicator of an intermittent hardware fault.

 

If you can afford it, replacing the whole computer is your best bet. Sounds like it's time for an upgrade anyway. Otherwise, if you're knowledgeable enough to be messing around in your computer's insides, try (1) dusting it (seriously! you'd be surprised how many cases of system instability are due to dust building up inside the case, blocking airflow and insulating key components, causing overheating), (2) new RAM, (3) new graphics card, etc. If you take it to a computer repair shop they can do all of this for you.

My games | Public Service Announcement: TDM is not set in the Thief universe. The city in which it takes place is not the City from Thief. The player character is not called Garrett. Any person who contradicts these facts will be subjected to disapproving stares.
