Talking random reboot with unknown video card

Hey All!! Lots of great info here!

Need help with a particular video card. No matter what pc it's installed on, it randomly reboots. Could be on a 2.53mhz intel with intel board or HP xt878 1.3 amd athlon. A couple others tried too with same result.

All running Windows XP Pro SP2. Although last year I tried with SP1 and also XP Home with same random reboot problems.

The video card is this one below... I can't tell the real brand of it, so getting drivers from a company website is a problem.

And the DXDIAG screenshot is included as well.

Can anyone identify this card? Or why it's creating the reboots?
Thanks for any ideas!!

All BIG pictures here.

Silicon Integrated Systems
That is the link to get to the driver for this card. If you are running windows XP that is.

Thanks for the link! I guess it's been a while since I searched their site. I had the drivers from 2003, but those did not include XP. They now have specifically XP listed.

Downloaded and installed! Will use for a few days and see how she copes.
