It still just restarts! No blue Screen at all. I lately tried another graphics card that worked with no problems at all untill a restart and now exactley the same thing happens. I'm beggining to think that it is the power supply struggling or the motherboard is approaching it's expiry date! I've Checked the RAM aswell and that appears to be fine.

Have you checked Event Viewer? (start, run and type in eventvwr.msc)


As far as hardware, it could really be anything, but the PSU is the most obvious.


How often does it do it, and does it do it in Safe Mode?

Question

Insomniac, i'm not quite sure what to be looking for in event viewer. Under system there is a long list and some of them are red crosses.

Next time it does it, make a note of the exact time, then look in Event Viewer and match it up.

Hopefully that will give you more info.

i did what you said but I can't see any causes of the restarting. I tried it in safe mode and the game didn't work at all btw.

Is it only rebooting from a game, or is it in general use?


If it's only a game, which one is it?


(as much info as possible)
