i dont know what to do i already reformat my system (2x) but still its still restarting.
pls.. help and save me... sorry if my english is bad.
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.
