Default Computer chrasch.

Just got a new pc,

pentium 2800 - 1024 ram - 128 mb Ati radeon Pro - Chaintech Apogee 9PJL Motherboard.

Running XP with DX 9.0 and i got all the latest drivers from Microsoft and ati installed.

Everytime i try to run my F1c or GP4 game or just about any other game it chrasches the computer, and it starts to reboot, it's just a ? of how long it will take. Sometimes it chrashes immediately.

This problem goes for all the games i use.......

Any help appreciated,

Computer chrasch.

Default

see if disabling Fast Writes in the ATI control Panel helps.
Do you have an option in your BIOS to set your VC voltage .If so see if it needs to be on 1.5 v .

pentium 2800? if your video card has a fan on it check to see if it is still spinning. it sounds like your video card is overheating.
