  1. i have the game sim city 4 and was happy to run it, but when i loads.... as soon as it hits the tutorial and my computer restarts. so what i did was go to my computer properties and take off the auto restart option in the startup and recovery settings.
    When i ran the game again, the error was;
    Tect info:
    *** STOP 0x000007E (0xC0000005, 0F733FC3F, 0xF2976A64, 0xF2976764)

    *** viaudios.sys - address F7337C37, BASE at F73370000, Datestamp 4029c2f1

    Now i have no clue what i just typed :knock: , but if anybody does, that would be great.
    As for my specs,
    VIA KT880 chipset Delta MSI motherboard w/ 400 fsb
    1024Mb or Dual Channel (2x512) kingston HyperX RAM
    XP2800+ AMD (333) CPU
    30 gig 7200rpm 133/ata maxtor HD
    128MB FX5200 Video Card by pixelview (it has yet to run at full capibilities)
    350w Power Supply
    and running XP Pro OS

    :hotbounce I am about really to dump this system and build another one with a 64 chip and Asus board with a FX5600 video card and 2gig (4x512)ram, but my bank account says negetive. lol.
    Please help me.
