Hello, I was just trying to play a game a few minutes ago and i got a window telling me that my graphics card was running on low graphics, and it told me to choose weather to continue running on low graphics, to configure my graphics card, or to quit.

I tried to reconfigure (bad choice) and my screen went blank. Then, it showed a command line. I didn't want to use the power button, so i spent twenty minutes trying to depict a shutdown or restart command.

1. What happened?

2. What do I do if it happens again?

Thanks

Ctrl+alt+prtscrn then type REUIB to soft restart. Try resetting your graphics card while not playing the game. What card are you using and what type of computer?
