Okay.. My brother went crazy and formatted my system to FAT32 on "accident". I don't know why, but I really liked NTFS better.

I'm not sure if it's the FAT32 that keeps doing this, but anyways..

My computer restarts everytime I run a game that uses fullscreen.

Warcraft III, Asgard (MMORPG), GTA III, etc.

Any help will be appreciated.

Interesting...have you checked the event logs?
to view events go to control panel> administrator tools> event viewer. sometimes the viewer can give you an idea of what is going on. Nice system dude!!

Run dxdiag utility and check that your video card is happy with its drivers, it sounds like a driver problem.

Dxdiag is available from Start - Run - type "dxdiag" in the run box and press OK.

It may connect to the net to check if you have the latest files.

There are several tests you can run. Whichever one crashes, you have found the answer.

As far as converting to FAT32 "by accident", its possible to convert from FAT32 to NTFS, but as far as I know to go the other way requires special software such as Partition Magic, and you are at risk of losing data. Interesting "accident"?
