So I found my old copy of Tony Hawk's American Wasteland (OLD game) and I decided I wanted to experience some nostalgia.

I installed it and everything and it started like a charm. Once I started playing, my computer randomly shuts off. Just completely turns off, no warning, nothing.

I'm pretty sure that my computer is not overheating because I play StarCraft II on this computer and do not have any overheating issues. This Tony Hawk game is a much lighter game, taking much fewer resources.

I have an HP HDX18 laptop computer. Here are its specs http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=c01602886

I probably need to provide some other stuff to aid in finding the problem, but I do not know what else to provide.

Let me know what else I can provide to fix this.

Cheers! :D

Are tou sure that this game is Fully Compatible with Windows7 ??
I run several very basic games on my XP that will not load or play on my Windows7 computer - - - -

I'm pretty certain that it is. Is there any definitive way to tell?

The specifications that link provides indicates that the operating system is Vista 64-bit, but this is posted in the Windows 7 forum. Did you do a update to Windows 7?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
