Any time i do something on my computer which changes the resolution (like playing a full-screen game off of a cd rom) my computer crashes and reboots. Sometimes this crash happens 30 seconds after I start the application, sometimes it's 10 minutes. This didn't happen before I added the nvidia geforce fx 5200, so I have to believe that the problem is related to that. I also recently experienced the same result when plugging in an apple mouse to my pc. do you know of a quick fix?

You could try selecting properties on the shortcut and checking the run maximized box.
Or you could try to find the .txt file with the game settings in it and manually insert a resolution. However, since I do not have the game, I cannot tell you were to find that.
I hope this helps,
Hi jhacy, I went over all you're posted questions conserning this issue with the FX5500 video card. Please include the manufacture name of you're motherboard & its model number. It is possible the video card is bad (Even if it's new). There are settings in the motherboard bios that me need to be shut off if the motherboard has an integreated video card onboard. It's possible that the AGP slot on you're board is dirty & needs to be cleaned. Please list the name or name's of the games you have tried to run but freeze you're computer or crash you're system.
I will automatically recieve an email from fixya when you post the information I have asked for above. Untill than, take care!
