Well M8, your english is perfect!

Just a fast look on the system of your i would guess that your problem is the 330w psu!

Thats way to low for that gpu-card!
If u can, try another one whit at least 550w! i think that will solve your problem.
If you dont have power enough the computer will freez or/and shut down.

Let me know if that helps!

Good luck to you M8!

Need to update driver xfx gf mx4000

Go to and select GeForce as the product type and GeForce 4 MX as the series. Choose the OS and language and away you go.

However, this is a fairly old card and if you're trying to play a new game it is possible that it isn't supported - it has no programmable shaders, for example, which may be required for new games.
