  1. Before anything else here's the specs of my pc

    Asus P5KPL-AMSE mobo
    intel dual core 2.6 ghz
    300 gb seagate hard drive
    samsung dvd rom
    2 gb memory kingston
    1 gb 9500 gt graphics card
    500 watts power supply

    I just bought my pc 4 months ago. At first games are functioning well (bioshock heroes of newerth fear) but later on I think after 2 months, games started to restart and their are no blue screens in it. I brought it to where i bought my pc and they checked it. They said it can be the OS because they checked every piece of hardware in my pc and their was no problem. I tried to reformat it but it still restarts in any game. Well I think the games im installing is compatible to my computer specs. I tried playing in low quality and updated my driver to the latest(197.13 for the graphics card) but still it has no effect. I even bought an extra fan because maybe its overheating.

    I appreciate your help. Thank you

    Have you checked you system logs for clues?

    If not, then please go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and open Event Viewer, go through all logs; especially ones with red or yellow tags and see what these tell you.

    Which Windows you are using?

    I would advise you to uninstall your graphic card's drivers, then run Driver Cleaner Pro and completely remove any traces of all previously installed drivers; then reboot.

    Then download latest drivers from nvidia.com and reinstall graphic card drivers.

    Also, download latest directx version for your os to update your installation.
