So I FINALLY find my copy of Starcraft and the CD Key and what happens? I install it, I run it, I download the Battle.net patches and my computer just shuts down. I try it again and again and again. EVERY TIME, IT HAPPENS. I turned off the auto-restart-on-crash, and then it just started freezing shut.

So, what can I do about this? I know a bunch of other people who own this model of laptop (it's standard-issue at my college) and they can run it fine.

Edit-It kind of seems like it runs for a certain amount of time, then craps out. Because sometimes it dies out in the lobby, sometimes in-game and sometimes while searching for a room.

i had the same problems with Warcraft3, so i ended up deleting all the programs i never used ( as well as my porn) and used disk defragment, other wise i have no clue, freezing usually not enough memory, slow processor, bad graphics card, or in this case "battle net" shitty internet connection.
