    I have been getting intermittent reboots lately. I can only remember getting them while playing Doom 3 and Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth, but I may have had it once otherwise. I have looked at the event viewer and nothing shows there that might have caused it.

    Any suggestions on what to look for or what could be causing it?

    My PC Specs:

    MB - INTEL SKT775 ATX INTEL 965WHMKR DDR2
    Processor - 775P E6600 2.4GHz CORE 2 DUO 1066MHz 4MG
    RAM - DDR2 PC5300 1GB DIMM 667MHz (X2)
    Video - PCI-E 512MG 7600GS
    TV Tuner - TV TUNER XPERT PCI KWORLD
    HD - SATA2 160GB WD 7200
    DVD - DVD+/-RW 16X LITE-ON BLACK W/NERO (X2)
    OS - XP Pro with future Vista upgrade (maybe)

    It's possible that your PSU isn't sufficient for the card you're using. Please post the make and model of the PSU you have.

    Also, overheating can cause this problem as well. What kind of temperatures are you getting on your video card during play?

    I had a problem like this on my old machine. It would crash after a short while of playing. IT turned out to be a heat issue. I gave it a good clean and it solved the problem. A can of compressed air will do wonders :)
