PC Rebooting after Gameplay?

  Hedders83 17:10 02 Dec 2007

My PC keeps re booting after gameplay and sometimes I get the message that the system has recovered form a serious error, when I sent the report to Microsoft, they stated problems are sometimes caused by failing hardware. My graphics card is 4 yrs old (Radeon 9800 pro) apart from that the PC runs ok. Motherboard is Gigabyte K7 triton on AMD 2800 chip with 1 gb ram. Any ideas?

Is your gx card driver up to date?

And also check the tiny fan on the card's chip is working perfectly,this card has a nasty habit of overheating if the fan is not up to the job.

I have tried to download and install the latest drivers, I installed the latest ATI catalyst software but the instructions were to remove the old one however I didn't realise until I had done it. Appears to have installed OK though, shall see how it goes. cheers
