    Computer restarted after an unexpected shutdown. Microsoft windows detected a possible device failure.

    The driver for the display device was unable to complete a drawing operation. Please check with the device manufacturer for a driver update.

    The display driver for RADEON 9200 SE seems to be responsible for this system instability.

    I've had this problem with a Radeon 9600SE. While I don't have an answer, your video card has almost nothing to do with shockwave game performance. That's usually more up to the CPU.
