The new video card takes a lot of power! You should upgrade it to a 450w PS. John
When I play a game on my computer, it will run for about 1 or 2 minutes and then flash a blue screen and restart. I've recently installed a GeForce FX 5500 OC video card on my computer. I am running windows XP pro, I have an AMD athlon 1.15ghz processor. Also, i have 1gig of RAM. I tried installing new windows updates. I also downloaded all new video drivers. I have a 320w power supply, so I don't think it's underpowered. I have also tried running the games with the cover off and it still restarts. I have written down the error message:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.
Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced startup options, then select safe mode.
