computer crash (black screen)after 5 minutes of in-game playing. Whats happening ? I found out this is pretty common for the game. going to download client from swtor website insted of origional discs!!!

It could be any number of things, but most likely it's an issue with your computer. The most common cause would be an overheating power supply or GPU, which actually occurs very frequently when people buy a new game. You might also want to make sure your drivers are up to date.
I would recommend using the Customer Service section of the official forums to try to troubleshoot the issue. The stickies there include contact information and outline processes needed to contact Bioware customer support. -- Heaven's Agent 16:28, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
