Linda asks…

Why is my computer restarting when I play world of warcraft?

This is the only program it does it on. I can run other games just fine with no problem, surf the net, everything, but when I play wow, my computer restarts. I've done virus scans, registery scans, spyware scans, every kinda scan I can think of, and it's still doing it. Any ideas?

dknol answers:

Well wow is a data intensive game meaning it takes a lot of energy to work it. So your fan on your computer or laptop probably is getting dirty because stuff builds up in there just give it a good clean

WoW World of Warcraft Requirements (Off the website)

The system requirements for World of Warcraft:

PC:
Processor: 800MHz or higher CPU.

RAM (Memory): 256Mb or more.

Video (Video Card): GeForce 2 or better

Hard Drive Space (HDD): 3Gb or more available.

DirectX 9.0 or above.

Mac:
Operating System: MacOS X 10.3 (Panther) or better.

Processor:1.0GHz or higher G4 or G5.

RAM (Memory): 512Mb or higher, DDR RAM recommended.

Video (Video Card): ATI or NVIDIA video hardware with 64Mb VRAM or more.

Hard Drive Space (HDD): 3Gb or more available.

HDD= Hard drive= Amount of space needed, most new computers come with 100 Gb or more now. 8 Gb is needed for Windows, so you'll need a 30 or 40 Gb HDD for regular use with Wow.

RAM= Memory= Think of it as a side kick to the Processor, it helps process things faster, 256 k is really, really low. You can get 1 Gb (256 k X 4) for $10-$15 now as long as it's DDR2 (what most new machines will need). For the best Wow experience I would recommend 1 Gb of memory, but that much isn't needed.

Processor= Literally the thing that processes things you want your machine to do. 800 MHz is going to be easy to find in a machine younger than 5 years old, most processors are 2000 MHz or higher now.

Video= Video Card= Card on your system board that helps the video along. The better the video card the better Wow will run and look, so this isn't something to go cheap on. A decent video card is from $50 and up.

I hope this helps.

Ruth asks…

Can I play WoW on a Computer without Expansions?

OKAY, I have a lvl 63 Troll Mage.

I want to play WoW on a computer that does not have Burning Crusade.

Can I use my account to pay on this computer, and just not use the parts of the game that require Burning Crusade?

dknol answers:

Most of the computers that have WOW will download most of the staff that is required for expansions so I bet you will have no problems. There are may be some parts that will have to be downloaded as you play, but it will be done without you noticing it if you have good internet. But most of the staff for BC will already be there, like blood elves – even those without BC should be able to see them in vanilla areas, so textures for them should be downloaded even if you don't own BC and so on…
