hello all, first post, be kind plz :eek:
anywho, ive got this machine i built myself, running Windows XP SP2 all availible updates installed.
Everytime I go to run a full screen game, (ie final fantasy XI or RollerCoaster Tycoon III) the machine will shut off and restart... but this also happens when the computer is just sitting idle and not doing anything... I havent installed any soft/hardware recently and the computer has been working just peachy up until recently.. Tried system restore but it will not restore any of my checkpoints.. ran an updated virus scan, nothing found, also ran ad aware and removed all bad items.. when the computer boots back up from a restart, it pops a box saying windows has recovered from a serious error, and shows the webpage that says "problem caused by device driver" but doesnt list a specific cause.. keep in mind, i havent made any hard/software changes in at least a month, but all video, sound etc. drivers are the latest versions
also tried windows setup from the CD and it will go as far as "Setup is starting windows" on the blue screen, then it will halt..
i am so tired of dealing with this problem... i needs the expert help! :o :o
thank you in advance!!
