Every time i try to play a video or game on my computer, my computer restarts and says that it recovered from a failure. I have a Geforce4 64 mb video card. I just bought it. Is it doing this because of my drivers or a conflict w/ the computer itself??? If anyone knows, that would be great because i would like to be able to go on my computer that i just upgraded.

Thanks a lot.

Couple of things to check
1. Check out the web site of the manufacturer of your motherboard for a new BIOS ( in case that you haven't do it already. Some times it solves the problems)
2. Could be a power supply problem ( as in not able to keep up with the demand) if it's a 300W or below
3. I assume that you use the lastest Detonator drivers ( as in 41.09 ) right?
4. If you have in BIOS , under the Advance Chipset , AGP Driving Control option , might wanna change it from AUTO to MANUAL and FA.or DA

Did you change the video card? Then you should deinstall the driver of the old video card properly.
