    While im playing games my computer restarts randomly. It wont give me a blue screen or anything that is telling me what the error is and it only happens if i am playing games. I have updated the drivers and installed direct x but the same problem keeps reoccurring.

    I have a AMD Athlon(tm) 64x2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ 22.0 Ghz, 1.00 GB of RAM
    Windows XP home , Radeon Sapphire x1950 GT

    it could be overheating - do you have any temp software on the PC
    or when it reboots - look at the bios and see what the temp is there

    it may be looking at the eveny viewer and see if that helps

    VPU Recover has reset your graphics accelerator as it was no longer responding to graphics driver commands
    The generated error report contains only system information such as a driver version, AGP settings, graphics frame buffer size, etc. that will be used to analyze the problem

    It happend again but it came up with this message
