Windows 7: Gaming, lost connection restarted in game!!!


07 Sep 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64- bit
 
 
Gaming, lost connection restarted in game!!!

Whilst playing a game I was disconnected, no picture on screen, although the PC was still running, I powered down using the case power button I restarted and instead of booting into windows it booted into the game I was playing then after a few minutes my game crashed.
Very odd, I'm using AMD 11.011a drivers.

Edit; just started my game and it crashed before it opened!!!

Does this happen with other games? Also have you tried running in compatibility mode for xp? Finally I want to mention that i looked up your game and came across this thread on the steam forums about it having issues on 64bit windows systems. He explains a fix on how to fix the error,i suggest to try his method and see if this resolves your problem or not. It's in the following link below
