PC Restarts

By tiaan.debruyn ·

For some odd reason my pc restarts itself while I play any online games.

Did a format and reinstalled the xp and the drivers. Installed services pack 3 and the new nvidea drivers. And still the pc restarts itself while I play online games.

Any help?

Check core temperature

May be your PC is overheating. Find a heat monitor and keep an eye on things while you play,

Another thing to try....

Search the net for other people having the same issue with your card, even if you have the latest and greatest driver. A faulty/unstable driver would cause this issue. They might say driver Version 8.0X caused them to crash, then they go on to say Version 7.3156 (some number) didn't crash their stuff, search for that version and give it a try.

I also agree with the poster above that a heat issue could cause this problem. What graphics card are you using? and what games are you playing?
