It's no good expecting technical help if you don't give any technical information.

Please read the sticky FAQ at the top of the forum and post your DXdiag information as explained in that post.

It sounds like an over-heating issue, but without more information it's impossible to be certain. Make sure, however, that your fans are clean and running fully and if possible provide some information about the temperatures. You could, for example, download and install HWMonitor (search for it, it's free) and run it before you play the game so that it will tell you afterwards what the temperatures peaked at.

Same thing happened to me today. (twice)

Also, all day I have had problems with graphics. Black screens when I take taxis', space fights, and issues with display when I am on my mount.

I having sort of the same issue.

I will be playing the game and suddenly it closes and I am staring at my Computer screen. This just started happening yesterday and has continued into today.

This is stupid and frustrating as I pay $$$ to play this game...
