What Operation System do you have? (For example Windows XP Professional)

i use winxp professional...

and i reinstalled vc about 5 times now...

i dont know, what i should try now... :cry:

-=€D!t=-

well, i deactivated the function, which is called "automatisches Herunterfahren" in german, i think its called "autom. shutdown" in english...

you can change that anywhere in the system...

if i activate this, it just shuts down and reboots, if i deactivate this, it shows me that bluescreen...

but it doesnt really help, does it?

To fix this you need to do the following;

1. Download the latest video card drivers from either http://www.ati.com or ww.nvidia.com. If you arent using either a GeForce/Radeon/Rage this may well be your problem (card needs to be at least 32MB)

2. Download DirectX 9.0 and install from http://www.windowsupdate.com

3. Download the latest drivers for your motherboard (ie from http://www.intel.com or http://www.msi.com.tw or whatever the site is for your motherboard manufacturer) and install them - this is VERY important.

4. Go to http://www.windowsupdate.com and search for the Quake 3 hotfix (something about crashing unexpectedly due to graphical conflict) It does say only install if you are having problems with Quake 3 but I found it fixed some problems with MTA as well.

5. If possible automatically update your computer from http://www.windowsupdate.com with all new patches and hotfixes- you have no idea how many problems there are with winxp straight out of the box.

6. Run a complete antivirus scan on your computer. If you do not have the almighty Norton Antivirus 2003/2004 you can get a free copy of AVG antivirus v 6.0 from http://www.grisoft.com

7. With any luck that should solve all your problems- if it doesnt you may have a corrupt registry- in which case you'll either need to reinstall winxp or you could try using regfix from http://www.topcatcomputing.com or Norton Utilities of course.
