My girlfriend's computer is a laptop: a Compaq Presario V2000 running XP with an Intel Pentium processor (1.40GHz), plenty of hard drive space, and 478 mb of ram.
I recently acquired good old Diablo I...after playing for 5-30 minutes, my formerly obedient computer now randomly shuts down completely.
I would consider this a temperature problem, except.....when I restart the screen resolution changes to something resembling safe mode. I then also have to reset the screen resolution.
Also, MS Word is apparently acting odd too, although I have yet to check this out myself.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Edit: Sorry, it *resembles" safe mode, not goes in to safe mode.
