My trusty old pc has developed a nasty habit.

It sometimes boots up with the strange colours on task bars,etc (beigey colour) and when i start a prog it switches off and restarts by itself. Could it be the graphics card (voodoo 3dfx)on its way out ? Gateway P111 700mhz, 3 x 128mb Ram, XP Pro.

Time for an update or is there things i can check ?Help appreciated
