Hello, this is my first post ever!
So I built this PC out of parts and its awesome.
3GHZ Pentium 4 HT processor
1 GB RAM
128 MB XGI Volari V3 Video Card with VolariV3-V1.16.02-WinXP driver
Windows XP Professional
Um.. I don't know what else, just reply if you need more info.
Well this PC crashes and reboots some times. It crashes with no Blue Screen of Death or whatever. Just Turns off suddenly and reboots. I looked at the Event Viewer and it had a quite a bit of errors! I had no idea what was happening! Then for a while it stopped restarting... I'm pretty sure the wires and stuff is all connected. I don't think it's overheating because i have Lavalys Everest Home Edition and it's saying the HD temperature is around 25 degrees celcius. I installed and fired up Halo: Combat Evolved. So I thought with this pretty good graphics card, I would get all the video options enabled and to the max. so i changed resolution of game to 1024 X 768, decals, texture quality, etc. I click apply settings and in about 3-4 seconds...BOOM, shutdown. reboot. startup.
It might sound noobish but I need help and I don't know how to fix this. I think a new graphics card might help..
