Ive just started getting a problem today, my computer is restarting whenever i exit a game - doesnt matter the game, BF2142, CS:S, Tabula Rasa - whenever i quit my computer restarts.
Up until yesterday my computer was fine, then my computer crashed for no reason, when i rebooted the screen was set at some silly resolution like 640*400 with 4 colors, and windows reported it couldnt use my ati drivers as they werent compatible with this version of windows.
the only recent windows update was a malicious software tool (which i downloaded after) and ive already installed the latest drivers from ATI. - This fixed the problem with the resolution, but now the restart on every game exit.
(ive tried using the previous version of the drivers as well, the ones originally on before this problem)
This is driving me nuts, ive tried reinstalling the drivers again, the problem does not occour in safe mode, and ive got a nice clean startup - with only MSN, xfire, zone alarm and my anti-virus (AVG) being loaded up (third party stuff anyway)
I cant upload my dxdiag as its too large, but i can put it on my web server and provide a link if needed, heres some basic info though
