View Full Version : ZP causes my PC to restart.

Each time I have tried to join a server while the map is downloading my computer restarts itself. When it finishes rebooting I get a critical error message. How do I keep this from happening?

Maybe you got a virus? >_>

First of all, read what the error is all about, write it down. Google it, I'd also make a virus scan since this isn't really common, or something a software should do.

Does this occur with any other source game?

This hasn't happened with any other steam game. This is the first source game I've tried. I'll check the error next time it happens.
I am actually having the same problem. I've tested my other games and I can join with out a problem. There is no real error, my computer goes from the Sending client info to black and the reboot. Let me know if you guys know anything I can do, I'm really looking forward to playing this game.
Thanks in advance.

And all of you guys, may I ask if you all have vista? There was a similar post about this, and they all had this kind of error, and they all had Vista. :(
In my case, I'm running Windows XP.

I'm running xp. I ran a virus scan and am trying again.

now it restarts when I select the options menu. I don't think that there's any panicing about zombies in my future.

Heres a few thing i could think of
1. over heating
2. your pc is old
3. lots of dust in the case (hs, fans and grills)
4. low spec pc with low memory and cpu
5. your video card driver is out of date or a cheap low model one that overheat alot on high graphic games.
try tell more about your pc, better yet upload your DxDiag to us

i have the same problem, and i know my pc can handle the game itself. i mean i can run crysis with a lot turned up. i played it for the first day, and then it started doing the restart thing. no virus, no spyware, nothing.

For me, video card drivers were the culprit when it came to crashes/reboots/blue screens, especially when getting a new video card. I recommend updating your drivers if you haven't already, otherwise you can try to downgrade to an earlier version and see if it fixes your problem.
If that doesn't fix it, then an overheating cpu/graphics card is your second best bet (provided other games run fine).
