SOURCE: i have a asus 7200 gs 256mb graphic card my pc keep restarting

Your PC keeps restarting because while playing your video card is highly solicited,and this causes overheating. The solution to your issue is to buy a cooling fan and attach it to the cooling grid.

If this solution worked for you please rate it. If you require further assistance feel free to post a followup comment.

SOURCE: 8800GT restart pc when playing only cod4 on latest nvidea drivers

I will take a stab at this, I advise that you contact Nvidea about this issue and COD 4 also, so they can get programmers working on it, it is very important you supply them with all your components you are using to see if they can reproduce your error, also be aware there could be hardware issues internal to your machine you may not have been aware of IE. the mb may have some bad caps or the Nvidea card may have bad caps , but I think it is a video processing error that either Nvidea should be aware of and COD programmers, they will want to know if the new drivers are having problems, and with what game. or games, my recommedation woul dbe to keep with the older driver and wait for a replacemetn it seems that the other games will run on the old 169 ver. Newest drivers are not always compatable with the newst game they can have issues for 6 months or for ever if no one informs teh game designers and teh video card designers.
I hope this helps, mozzilla is not needed...but it hink you know that...

ATI Radeon HD 3200 conflict with NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT driver


To solve this problem, uninstall the old driver, the ATI Radeon, it will not cause a problem when you uninstall it. After the uninstall, restart the computer and then install the support cd for the NVIDIA Geforce 9500 GT.

Video Card Problem


hi. The amd semprom has similar to an intel celeron. These cpu's are not gaming cpu's. The graphics card you are using is now quite old- very few agp graphics cards are made now. I would say that the cpu and gpu may be the problem but it depends what game you are playing. New video cards use pci express slot and new cpu's are dual core and quad core. If you are serious abot games then you could do with a new motherboard- maybe one supporting an intel core 2 duo cpu, to that add at least a Nvidia 9600gt 512mb gddr3 video card and have 3-3 gb's of ram.

Problem with computer


Try a good cleaning. Unplug the power cord from your PC. Remove the sides of your case. Using air blow everything off.
CPU, heatsink & PSU from both sides /outside to in & inside to out. Than remove the video card and clean its slot. Than clean the card its self. It would not hurt to remove your memory and clean their slots, reseat. Update windows!
If your broblem stops your done. If is hasn't doenload the latest driver from ATI: http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/xp/radeon-prer300-xp.html Remove old drivers from control panel before installing new drivers. If your old drivers fail to remove. Download & run ATI's uninstall utility:
