Yup New power supply fixes alot of problems I notice. Check to see if the
card is all the way in uninstall all video drivers and reinstall the latest
ones make sure all the memoery is properly in. One thing I did when my old
Ti-4200 kept rebootin was removing all PCI cards and the memory and put them
all back in and had no problems till I upgraded.

This is very strange, i have turned off reboot on error, but it still
causes system to reboot! Event viewer shows nothing. I run the memory
test prog that i got from MS, run it a few times and it showed all the
memory to be good and clean, but i havn't actuatly removed a stick yet.
I've tried removing "ULi AGP V3.0 Controller", and all the video card
drivers, and re-installing them, nothing helped. I did re-install
windows with all the hardware in place, but all i'm running at the
moment is bare necessities (cpu, memory, vid card, dvd drive). I run
dxdiag and it causes the system to re-boot when running direct3d tests!
But i don't think this is just a direct3d problem as doom 3 is openGL
and that fails too. I tried lowering AGP speeds and fast writes and all
sorts of other options, but nothing has helped yet. Its hard to tell
whats failing when the system just reboots! - who'd have thought i'd be
wanting to see a BSOD.

Pleaseeeeeee help! - i'm totaly lost.

The OP needs to turn off reboot on error in XP to see what the error
actually is. Could be bad memory too.

Overheating video card or CPU? did u reinstall windows after u added
in
all
the new hardware? if not do it solves ALOT of software conflicts
beyond
that
Iam not sure what else to try anyone else?


Sounds like it is hardware related since windows shows no error in log.

1. make sure card is seated properly.

2. all fans turning?

3.Next most likely is marginal power supply.


Had random reboots on one of my computers....new power supply fixed it.
