New 2K9 Install Bombs

2 posts in this topic

I just purchased and downloaded MLB 2K9 from Direct 2 Drive this morning and unpacked/installed it successfully (or so I thought) this afternoon, including upgrading my DirectX version to 9. I am able to load the game and go through the initial menu selections (game type, teams, etc.) but as soon as the camera view of the stadium begins my PC reboots itself. This has happened 4 times (I tried the HR derby a couple times, too) and I can't get beyond it, nor can I get any system info other than Microsoft's dialog box saying that the system has recovered from a serious error. My PC matches/exceeds all the requirements - has anyone had a similar experience or any suggestions for how I should try and correct this? Thanks!

What operating system are you using?

Sounds like it could possibly be overheating related, you might want to make sure you clean out the dust from the CPU heatsink and video card heatsink.
