Your card is pulling too much power. check the wattage rating of the card and the wattage output of your power supply . good rule of thumb you want about 20% more that your card rating 450 watt card needs 650 watt power supply to run well. the extra is for your other stuff (dvd burner ,ect)

My Emachine with Windows Vista keeps shutting itself down? What could be the problem?


The first step would be to turn off automatic restart on BSOD errors.

  1. Click on Start and then Control Panel.
  2. Click on the System and Maintenance link.
    Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel you won't see this link. Simply double-click on the System icon and proceed to Step 4.
  3. Click on the System link.
  4. In the task pane on the left, click the Advanced system settings link.
  5. Locate the Startup and Recovery area and click on the Settings button.
  6. In the Startup and Recovery window, locate and uncheck the check box next to Automatically restart.
  7. Click OK in the Startup and Recovery window.
  8. Click OK in the System Properties window.
  9. You can now close the System window.
  10. From now on, when a problem causes a BSOD or another major error that halts the system, the PC will not automatically reboot. Rebooting manually will be necessary.
Now when it errors it wont restart, instead it will give you an error message that we can use to troubleshoot your problem.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

What may be the problem of my pc because it always restart?


You need to get the exact error message to determine the cause of your system restarting. Then post again with the error message that will appear.

If you're using Windows XP:
  1. Navigate to the Control Panel in Windows XP by left-clicking on Start, followed by Settings and then choosing Control Panel.
  2. In the Control Panel window, open System.
    Note: In Microsoft Windows XP, depending on how your operating system is setup, you may not see the System icon. To correct this, click on the link on the left-hand side of the Control Panel window that says Switch to Classic View.
  3. In the System Properties window, click on the Advanced tab.
  4. Locate the Startup and Recovery area and click on the Settings button.
  5. In the Startup and Recovery window, locate and uncheck the check box next to Automatically restart.
  6. Click OK in the Startup and Recovery window.
  7. Click OK in the System Properties window.
  8. From now on, when a problem causes a BSOD or another major error that halts the system, the PC will not automatically reboot. Rebooting manually will be necessary.
If you're using Vista/7:
  1. Click on Start and then Control Panel.
    Tip: In a hurry? Type system in the search box after clicking Start. Choose System from the list of results and then skip to Step 4.
  2. Click on the System and Maintenance link.
    Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Simply double-click on the System icon and proceed to Step 4.
  3. Click on the System link.
  4. In the task pane on the left, click the Advanced system settings link.
  5. Locate the Startup and Recovery area and click on the Settings button.
  6. In the Startup and Recovery window, locate and uncheck the check box next to Automatically restart.
  7. Click OK in the Startup and Recovery window.
  8. Click OK in the System Properties window.
  9. You can now close the System window.
  10. From now on, when a problem causes a BSOD or another major error that halts the system, the PC will not automatically reboot. Rebooting manually will be necessary.

System shuts down after surfing the internet


Regarding the error code, all you need to do is update your driver. You can do this by downloading the most up to date driver from motorola here.

Unfortunately, it seems like this might be two seperate issues.

Sometimes machines, especially laptops but it will happen to desktops as well, will shutdown when they are overheated in an attempt to prevent damage to the physical hardware. Judging by the "after about 15 minutes" comment, I think this might have something to do with it as that 15 minute window would give a non-functioning fan or unventilated laptop enough time to overheat your machine.


If the driver update does not stop the random rebooting and you do not think the machine is hot when it reboots, do this:

right-click My Computer and choose Properties; click the Advanced tab. In Vista, click the Start button, type System, Properties, Advanced, and press Enter. Click Continue if prompted by User Account Control.

In all versions, click the Settings button under 'Startup and Recovery'. Uncheck the Automatically restart box, and click OK twice. The next time the problem occurs, instead of rebooting you will likely see a text screen reporting a system error. Report back with what error it gives you.

Good luck!

My computer won't shut down it just keeps restarting


The most common shut down problem is that the system will reboot rather than shutting down. In most cases, the reboot is triggered because Windows XP is designed to reboot after a critical failure. To stop windows from rebooting in case of a failure, you need to take the following steps:
Right click on My Computer, Select Properties, Click on advance tab, Click on Settings under Startup and Recovery, Uncheck the option Automatically Restart under System failure, Click Ok twice and try to shutdown the pc. If it shows any error code then let me know

Window shut down automatically and restart, then shut down again... It happened after a window update yesterday lunch time.


Recovery SettingsOne of the things that is quite different about Windows XP compared to Windows 9x (9x is shorthand for Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me in all their various versions), is that one can control how it responds to certain critical errors—those that cause the infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). In Windows XP, the default setting is for the computer to reboot automatically when a fatal error occurs. If that fatal error only occurs when you're shutting down, the system reboots automatically.
If you haven't changed any of the system failure settings, you should be able to see the error by looking in the Event Log. But a better long-term solution is to turn off the automatic reboot so you can actually see the error when it happens—chances are it will tell you enough about itself to let you troubleshoot further. To change the recovery settings to disable automatic rebooting:
1.
Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2.
Click the Advanced tab.
3.
Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
4.
Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.
5.
Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.
Now when you go to shut down and a fatal error occurs, you'll at least see it and it won't cause an automatic reboot. You still have to sort out what's causing the problem, but that gets us to the next section quite nicely.

Items In Device Manager Not Recognized By XP Hi I am hoping that someone here can help me out with problems I have with my new graphics card, I am not sure if it is a software problem or a hardware one. The computer I have was made up by a friend three years ago and I just felt it was time to upgrade my graphics card! So I got the HIS HD 4670 IceQ 1GB (128bit) 850 MHz DDR3 PCIe a few days ago and loaded it yesterday with the updates that I could find on the internet. However this morning when I started my computer I got to my desktop and while it was loading the computer rebooted itself and has been working ok since. But I got a error warning when I returned to windows and it told me to update my drivers and hardware! I also noticed that in the hardware profiles I have the following with question marks on them; ? ! PCI Memory Controller ? ! SM Bus Controller ! Unknown Device (Sound, video and game controllers) So would these three items be causing my problems or something else? Plus does anyone know how I can resolve these issues? Just in case you need to know what I have in my computer, here is what I think you might need to know; Antec Sonata II Piano Black Quiet Super Mini Tower (With The SmartPower 2.0 450W ATX12V v2.01 Power Supply) 1 Rear 120mm Tri Cool Fan AMD 64 Athlon 3200+ 3 GB of Ram 250GB Hard Drive 500 GB External Drive Windows XP Pro (Service Pack 3) And if you need any more information, please let me know can I can supply it. I appreciate anyone?s help with these problems. Thanks Mark
