    Have patience Grasshopper. This isn't a chat room. :)

    Post the rest of your system specifications so we can better diagnose your problem. Give brand names and models including your power supply.

    Did you have this same problem before you reinstalled Windows?

    For ATI graphic card drivers go the the ATI site: click here.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    First. you shouldn`t be bumping threads, unless you have received no replies after 24 to 36 hours.

    You can get your graphics drivers from the ATI website.

    As for your computer rebooting. Take a look at this thread HERE.

    Also, go HERE and follow the instructions.

    Finally. Please use proper and descriptive thread titles.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Suggest you switch over to a vid card using an NVIDIA chip. I've had that problem pop up several times on several systems. Seems like the coding on many of the games is maximized for NVIDIA. After switching over the problem went away. Also make sure you have proper cooling/ventilation.
