Probs With 3D Apps + Games

  1. Hi! When I play games with hardware acceleration, my pc restarts unexpectedly. Anything to do with 3D, and my pc restarts. I've got a 3D screensaver that uses direct3d and my pc restarts when the screensaver has been on for 10 mins or so. I've got an integrated geforce4 mx 128mb graphics card and a nforce 2 ALBATRON KM18G Pro motherboard.

    I would be very grateful if any1 knows what is up or has any suggestions.

    I've done the obvious things like update drivers,windows update, virus check,mem test. I really stuck. :(

    Once again id be very grateful for help.

    so you are running the newest drivers? well that rules that out then
    how powerful is your PSU - it could be that whenever you fire up the 3d card the drain is so high that it all simply worth a check

    We have a System Specs section in the profile. Using it would make it a lot easier for us to help.
