Most often restarts during games or other heavy duty tasks are from the following reasons

1.) Lack of power. If your Power supply unit is less than 450W then this is highly likely.
2.) Overheating. If your PC's bios has temperature reading sensors then after it is warmed up open the BIOS by press <Delete> after the logo disappears and go to the entry that informs you of temperature... If your seeing a Temp ove 45-50 degrees Celcius your runnin too hot. Get a better heatsink or other cooling apparatus (ie... liquid cooling or peltier) depending on your budget and your technical skill.
3.) Video card over heating/power issues run the PC with the cover off. Watch your Video card. is the Fan on it spinning? Does you Video card have a seperate power adapter? If so is it Fully seated.
4.) Mismatched memory. the memory adapter you installed does it have the same specifications as other memory that is also in your system. Sometimes if their slightly off and the computer sets the timing for the faster memory instead of the slower memory then the system chugs along at a speed that the slow module cant handle and it fails momentarily.
5.) Driver conflict error. Sometimes an older driver just gets in the way of other devices that want the same resources. (Particularly if you are using the drivers that came with the Video card) Go to Nvidia's website download and install the latest drivers for your card and Operating system combination.

Hopefully these tips will help you get you Fragging in no time.
Good gaming
and godbless

Hello
Are these keys binded to some other movement in tthe game?Try resetting your options for movement,weapons, back to default.Usually A is left and D is right. W is forward And S is back.

Or try using a combination of say A and W this should allow you to stay moving left and forward,not a bad firing movement with weapon on fully automatic.

If any software program came with you keyboard uninstall it and try letting windows run the keyboard.

Lagging problem


raheell, I enjoy building and modding. But I would never try to game with only 512 meg of memory. 1gig would be my low end and 2 gig would be average. Just looking at the Game specs and different Counter Strike and Half Life pages. I would check that DDR1 memory and the drivers on your 7200gs. But my bet is lack of memory or the memory is just not the quality for long hard work. Though it is cosair my favorite memory. Does it have heat spreaders on the sticks or stick? Have you investigated the 7200gs. Check out the Counter Strike and Half Life forums. I found some interesting facts. I also would post to CPU (Computer Power User Magazines site) They are the high performance place to go for hardware problems... Just some thoughts... PCdok
