I have a nvidia tornado geforce 2 mx pci graphic card with 64 mb. I installed the card into my machine, my motherboard is a micro atx mainboard ms-6378, i'm using windows xp with service pack 1. When i install the drivers for the card, the computer would on occation reset its self, when i'm on the net or doing something with graphics. i search the net for update drivers which i got from nvidia, but it still did the same. I also used msi live monitor, which look for drivers for my motherboard, and it found a graphic card driver for my board, but still no luck. I have uninstall the drivers to stop the computer resetting, but i would like to use the card to its full. Has anybody go any idea i would be very grateful

Have you checked what irq it is using in Device Manager.If it is conflicting with another component that could be part of the problem.
Have you altered the setting in the bios from agp to pci.

have you disabled the onboard graphics this may cause a conflict
