many times PC's overheat, they have built in sensors that will turn the PC off to prevent damage. Try removing the side pannel of your case, if that helps, you could look into more fans to cool your pc down.

If that dosnt help, you might also try updating your video drivers, maybe you are experianceing some kind of glitch that has been fixed.

Have you got the newest drivers (even if they are old)?

If you do, then you're S.O.L. , unless you stick to old applications that use direct x 6 or something.

How many megs of memory does your card have?

The minimum requirement for most new games is 64mb.

ATI has nice 256 mb cards that I'd like to get my hands on :xgrin:

The problem isn't memory because if i leave my computer on for some time it still might restart, even if i wasn't doing anything,the windows error reports tell me it is a driver.But i just don't know how to sort it out.Shall i reinstall the original driver i got with the card?because im sure its the new drivers that are the problem

It wouldn't hurt to try. If the old drivers give you really bad problems you can just log in under safe mode and install newer ones if that becomes necessary.
