My display driver has some error because when I play WoW it causes the computer to freeze and go black, requiring a restart. (Used to be the blue screen of death sporting a message of Device driver stuck in infinite loop. File: ATI2DVAG, but now just freezes and goes black.)After many hours of desperate troubleshooting, I found a very common solution to go into the device manager and change the CPU to AGP controller to the PCI Bridge, but to my dismay, my computer (Which had its hard drive wiped without the manufacturer disks to reinstall) doesnt even have the CPG to AGP controller. I have no idea where to find this device. My computer recognizes the drivers for my ATI graphics card, but doesnt have this one section.
Is that your motherboard on you picture? if so, it has an expansion slot built for pci-e video cards, then problem solved!! if not, try updating your drivers!! then place a fan on you northbridge chipset so that it wont heat-up... that's the thing... pm me..

It may be owe to software problem1, the virus "shock" virus attack will prompt system will automatically start in few seconds. From the remote control you Trojan program all the activities of the computer, including let your computer restarts. Remove viruses, trojans, or reshipment system.2, the system files damage system files destroyed, as the KERNEL32. Win2K DLL Win98 features, the font list below such basic execution system files destroyed at startup, system will therefore cannot finish initializing and forced the restart. Solution: cover installation or reinstall it.Hardware problem:1.Chassis power is not enough, dc output is pure, the dynamic response sluggish. Users often ignored or assembling businessman, using cheap price of power supply, so is the largest system of automatic restart suspicion. (1) the power output power shortage, when run large 3D gaming occupy CPU resource of software, the CPU needs power supply, power is not caused by overload protection, stop the power output. After the output power to stop, load, reduce power restart. Due to the protection of the recovery/time is short, so we are hosting automatic restart. (2) power dc output is pure, pure dc power supply of digital circuit requirements, when the power output of too direct, the harmonic content will result in digital circuits, performance is often work to crash or restart. (3) working load of the CPU is dynamic, on the current requirement is dynamic, and the dynamic response speed quickly. Request Some of the poor quality power dynamic response for a long time, could also lead to crash or frequent restart. (4) high-end graphics update equipment (large disk/video card/equipment (increased), after the hard disk) / burners, power supply of original beyond rated output power will cause the regular crash or restart. Solution: now in high quality high-power computer power.2.The memory chip thermal stability, incorrect or damage to restart the system memory problems to restart the system of risk. (1) the poor thermal stability of memory, boot can work normally, when the memory to a certain temperature, temperature is can not work normally, which leads to crash or restart. (2) memory chips, slightly damaged, also can pass on self into the system, when the operation can be some big software throughput will restart or crash. Solution: replace memory. (3) memory of CAS value too small can also lead to instability caused by system memory, automatic restart. General had better use the default Settings, don't roll change yourself.4.The CPU temperature exorbitant or the cache damage (1) the CPU temperature exorbitant often causes protective automatic restart. The basic reason of high temperature is due to poor cooling chassis, CPU, the CPU is undesirable reasons: the heat radiator thermal conductivity low, radiator material with a foreign body between CPU interface (1) for quality assurance, fan speed is low, the fan and radiator dust too much, etc. And P2, P3 motherboard CPU temperature probe damaged under the mp4 or within the CPU temperature detection circuit on the mainboard damage, the BIOS BUG in a special conditions of temperature, the CPU CMOS setup to protect low temperature, etc. Can also cause protective restart. (2) of an internal CPU, level 2 cache damage is CPU common fault. The extent of damage, or can start, when running into the system, the software (some throughput big media player, games, 3D graphic) will restart or crash. Solution: in the CMOS setup of shield (L2) or level 2 cache cache (L1), 1 or replace the CPU.4.AGP display, PCI CARDS (nics), cat restart automatically (1) the external card or poor quality work not standard, AGP/PCI bus signal misoperation cause system RESET to restart. (2) and graphics, loose network system may cause restart.5.Parallel, USB access is serial, fault or the incompatibility of external devices restart automatically (1) the fault or not compatible with the parallel damage, such as printer, a foot of short-circuit, USB equipment damage of short circuit, signal level sutural definition, opaque, etc. (2) hot swaps external devices, shaking, cause signals or power instant short-circuit.6.Mainboard failure In case of automatic restart motherboard is rare. Generally RESET circuit are associated with a fault, Socket weld is empty, slots, contact undesirable, Individual chip, capacitance elements such as damage.
if you keep reset on to your CPU this will affect to your Hard Drive. When your online games WOW very lag then do not let that online game on play to your Computer. You know or maybe your Computer are not enough to run this game. Check all the plug in play device which are capable to run this game. Your VGA Compatibility e.i AGP or PCI-E, Memory speed e.i DD1, DD2 & DDR3 and mostly Games Accelerator Programs. Hope this tip might help you. Good luck!

Seems like your graphic card is not supported. Its a older version. My first solution would be update your driver for your graphics card: http://driver.wareseeker.com/download/visiontek-radeon-9250-agp-8.072.rar/1e97d07a01 or http://www.soft32.com/Download/Free/VISIONTEK_RADEON_9250_AGP/4-172246-1.html
If that doesn't fix it (which I don't think it will), you might just have to buy yourself a better graphics card and/or computer.
you don't need to update the driver cause the problem is in your hardware. Graphic seems to be a bit grounded, try cleaning the contact pins of your AGP graphic card with eraser, clean it side by side and then put it back again to an AGP slot, then boot your CPU again. If it still the same, try it in another motherboard that support you graphic card just to be sure before we conclude that its the graphic card has the problem. Anyway if it still under warranty you can claim for a replacement to the store where you bought the graphic card.
Have a nice day!
you have to check: if driver is right and no error during hardware and software install
1) go bios check the setting for AGP and biuld-in VGA, set to AGP slot enable
2) check your cpu speed, and power supply watt, it is under 350 is not siuitable for higher speed cpu plus GF6600, choose 400W or higher better. sometimes the power trouble is crucial
3) check your motherboard model to make sure the AGP slot which support GF6600
3) go windows check 6600 device status at control panel/ system/hardware manage/vedio card show right detail.
If you have on board graphics try removing video card and reboot when computer rebooted turn it of and refit card and restart when restarted computer should recognize new hard ware and should find the already installed drivers if not try installing drivers again Sometimes windows does not recognize new hardware until its refitted had this problem with modems alot and the above method solved it
Give this a shot - solves the problem for sure:
Right click-mouse over My Computer Properties Hardware(Tab) Device Manager(button) Click [+] next to System devices right-mouse on CPU to AGP Controller (or whatever your controller is called, mine was SiS AGP) Update Driver(button)
Select Install from a list or specific location (Advanced) Next(button) Select Don't search. I will choose the driver to install. Next(button) Select PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge Next(button) Finish(button) Reboot.
