GF4: Exiting Games Restarts Computer

  1. I recently installed a new hard drive in my system and installed a GF4. Now when I exit 3D games that I play....namely Everquest...rather than going back to the desktop the computer just restarts itsself. Any suggestions?

    What OS? Changing drivers might fix it.

    Make sure you are running the latest Detonator 4 drivers. I recommend the 28.32's. Make sure you uninstall your current drivers through add/remove programs, reboot and then install the new drivers. Nvidia drivers do not "upgrade" very well. You can get the 28.32's over at guru3d.com. Let us know how you make out..

    Sounds like XP is set to automatically reboot when BSOD occurs. And BSOD occurs most likely because of Infinite loop error. Just guessing..
