Hi ozzie 246.
What rating is your PSU.Is it 300w or more?I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the psu at fault.Iwould check this item firstly before anything more drastic.Check the connections and seating of cards in slots.Is your system cooled by case fans etc;Thermal problems can cause similar symptoms to yoursHope this bit of info helps
Regards

ozzie 246 you'd get more response if you shut down this thread and opened a new one in the Helproom, I think you posted this in the wrong area.
