This only happens when I am playing games, and it seems to be only the newer games that cause the problem, but my computer randomly restarts while I am playing. It does not seem like there is a certain period of time before it restarts.
My computer is the following:
MB: Chaintech 7vjl EZ
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2100+
RAM: 512MB DDR
Video: Excaliber RADEON 9600 pro
HDD: 1xSeagate 80gb 1xSeagate 120gb
CD/DVD: 1xAopen 52x24x52 cd-rw 1xDVD-ROM 4x
The psu is 320watt max and I also have a PixelView PlayTV Pro.
I think the problem may be a hadware conflict, but I may be wrong. If anyone can help me, that would be great.
Is the PSU a generic one? If it is that may very well be your problem. I used to have random restarts until I finally got enough money to purchase a nice Antec 400w PSU...BTW(wattage isnt all that matters, though that PSU may claim to produce 320w, if its generic it probably doesnt produce nearly that)
