    Every time i run it it goes threw about half way just fine, then half way threw the Audio Playback testing my monitor shuts off and then after about 2 minutes the computer restarts.

    I just installed a GeForce 6200 pci video card, everything works fine but when i try to update the performance score that happens.

    Any clues why?

    My guess is the PSU cant run both the video card and sound card at the same time...so it cant run...but thats just a guess, ill switch to my internal sound card instead of my PCI sound card and see if that helps then ill update the status :)

    Yah its the PSU, i try to run halo 2 (thats what i got the card for) and right after the first part of the opening were it says Halo 2 the monitor shuts off.

    I assume this is because it doesnt get the power needed? And my PSU has a switch for 115volts and 230 volts when i switch it from 115v to 230v it wont even turn on...(Its the stock PSU from a HP Pavilion a305w)
