    I have this webcam installed in both of the desktops that you see listed in my signature below.

    The Compaq Presario 5900T has an ATI Radeon 7000 video card with 64 MB of video memory.

    The Computers Plus has a Nvidia Riva TNT2 M64 video card with 32 MB of video memory.

    The webcam seems to work fine in the desktop with the ATI video card, but it'll freeze up after about 5 minutes and cause an automatic reboot in the desktop with the Nvidia video card.

    As long as I leave the webcam turned off, there isn't a problem. Is the cause of the freezeup and reboot because of the Nvidia video card, or is there some other problem involved?

    I'm considering installing an ATI Radeon 9200 video card with 128 MB of video memory because I seem to have better luck with ATI, and CompUSA has it on sale for $80.00.
