video card resetting itself

  inneedofhelp 14:27 15 Jun 2004

hello all,
Setup is,AMD 2700 XP,760mb ram,80 gogs, radeon 9800xt on a assrock mobo.

I have just re-installed windows, drovers, programs etc after a recent format.

Eveything works fine but now when I am doing anything graphic intensive eg fltsim,halo, harry potter(whoops, did i say that out load) the monitor lcd ges from green to amber, then nothing. All i can hear is the sound coming from the game. this happens about 10 mins in on fltsim, 3 mins in on harry potter and about an hour in halo.

I have most up tot date direct x installed plus the most up to date catlyst drivers,control panel for my graphics card. at the moment, nothing is over clocked and i have a thermaltake case with 8 fans so i know its not overheating.

any ideas
