Home built PC running W7 64bit. AMD quad core 2.6ghz, 8Gb ram. Graphics card Nvidia Geforce 8600GT.
The computer was bulit a couple of years ago and as been running ok until I installed W7 about a month ago. The PC is used mainly for photographic work and I run Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom. Once/twice a day the screen image judders then freezes and I have to do a reset. I suspect the graphics card,but not 100% sure, hence the question. Last week I downloaded the latest drivers from Nvidia, but this did not cure the problem.
So the question to the forum experts would you agree that the problem is the graphics card, if so what medium card would you recommend, bearing in mind that the 8600GT has been perfectly adequate for my needs.
Sorry for the delay in coming back. Hope the following answers your questions

"The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly. Event Xml" I think this refers to my doing a manual reset
