    Standard info...
    XP SP2
    AMD Athlon 2800+
    2gb ram
    ATI x700 256mb connected via agp

    Ok so here is the issue. This started not too long ago after installing BF2. All games which use directx (Medieval 2 Total War, Source engine games halflife 2 etc, and now finally Pirates of the Burning Sea) crash and cause my computer to turn off. I assume its only directx games as Audiosurf, which I believe is openGL, works perfectly. When i begin to play it renders for a few seconds followed by shutting down. Ive already updated to the newest drivers from ati and Ive uninstalled BF2 if that was the issue. None of this has helped. Anyone have any suggestions?????
    Thanks in advance, kecker
