    What operating system are you using?

    Did you have a driver set that was working before the update? (If so restore back to it for now)

    I'm sorry what?
    You mean driver version? What do you mean games with big sizes?

    Can you list your full computer specs?
    Also if i was you, just use SP2.
    Also you have a 8400gs, use the latest drivers, the 190.38.

    Its not as if SP2 > SP3, he already has SP3, it would be more of a pain going to SP2.

    yeah the driver version . the games that do so are Need for speed undercover , Death track , Euro truck simulator.
    my pc : Intel(R) Core (TM)2 Duo CPU , E6750 @ 2.66 GHz 2.64 GHz , 1.99 GB RAM

    could SP 2 work better than SP3 ??

    Let me get things straight...
    So does it restart only when you play "big games" (reffering to file size)?
    So you have the latest 190.38?
    Since when did the problems start? When you upgraded your drivers? If so, then roll back your drivers.
    This may be a power supply problem, what is your power supply?
