Asus A8V-VM SE with geForce 7100 GS crashes on load

The games usually start and then freeze several moments later and computer just reboots on its own or sometimes requires reset. Same problems under both XP and Ubuntu. Works fine for browsing internet but most games cause a reboot. I think this particular PCI-e card has some of its own memory and it shares some of the system memory maybe this is the cause? maybe a sharing violation? I cant ever see any error messages though.

    It is the only card installed and the only driver i know of is for the whole GeForce 7 probably just going to get a new video card. They are a lot cheaper these days.

Its probably a hardware issue. the video card has dedicated memory so there shouldnt be any problems unless the card is bad. Try removing any extra cards like wireless adapters and expanded firewire cards and sounds card. try running the game wiht just the video card in and see if it still does it. if it doesnt, you know its having conflicts with other hardware, if not, then try removing all the video card software and installing just the drivers without the xtra software. I had similar problems with Two ATI cards, The catalyst software was causiong problems, i removed it but kept the drivers, and all my problems went away.

I have missed the motherboard Cd for my A8V-VM SE with AMD processors so which are the drivers are to be loaded so as to detect the sound card and VGA

Download the drivers you need from Asus;
Realtek Audio Driver and VIA Onboard VGA Driver.
Once the site above loads you'll need to click on the drop down menu and click on you're operating system.

Thats it!
Good luck

Asus A8V-VM SE with geForce 7100 GS crashes on load

Check your SMPS is proper output to system without any fluctatution. 12 and 5 Walts. Keep the multimeter for a while to check it.

RAM may be a culprit for frequent restart.

There is no violation on sharing of memory between system and graphics.

Game guard dump_wmimmc.sys

Cloaked Malware. The Process is packed and/or encrypted using a software packing process. DUMP_WMIMMC.SYS has been the subject of the following behavior:
Created as a new Background Service on the machine
Loaded and Executed as a System Driver File
Deleted as a process from disk
Created as a process on disk

This file I believe it is from GameGuard, Nprotect.
