Computer restarting when opening Warcraft 3

  1. When I open the Warcraft 3 application the computer just restarts instantly. I have no idea why this has happened. But I know for sure this has something to do with me reformatting my computer. Before I reformatted it Warcraft 3 worked normally.

    I was hoping if you guys can diagnose the problem and tell me how to solve this error.

    Here are my system specs

    -Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 (build 2600)
    - E6550 2.33 gigahertz Intel Core2 Duo
    - NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT [Display adapter]
    - 2GB DRR2 RAM
    - WDC [Hard drive] (320.07 GB)
    - Realtek High Definition Audio

    I attached the dmp file for you guys to have a look at.

    Thank you for your time,

    Your issue is with the Asus display drivers particularly atkosdmini.dll that is preventing another Asus driver atkdisp.dll from loading.

    These Asus drivers have caused headaches for many people and one of the suggestions that I ran into several times is to uninstall through the Add/Remove program.
