    go to windows update page and get those drivers. Un-Tested or unsigned drivers are fine, i use them for my voodoo. It just means that they haven't been tested my microsoft, who cares a whoot. Just try other drivers

    maybe take out card and put it back in? if the card is in crooked or not a tight fit, the little brass triangle things will move around and it automatically restarts your computer when it does that

    Coming home from a hard day of work. Loading up my favorite computer game. .Counter-strike. Before i even noticed my computer restarted automatically, I am saying must be because i hit the comp restart button somehow. Than it reboots i load up cs again... and it restarted again. So i reinstalled my drivers for my video card ( Geforce 3 ti 200 DDR ) XP @home gives me an error saying that this hardware hasn't been fully tested. I installed the card with the latest drivers anyways. Than load up cs and there goes the restarting automatically again. Is there a fix for this? if not im not going to be an happy man.

    I hate this its starting to make me mad :\

    Comp Specs

    P4 2 ghz
    512 Ram
    GF3 ti DDR 200
    Windows XP @home


    Maybe im overheating? , cus when i went to bio's it was like 100 or so celcius
