Default Random In-Game Restarting

Hello,

I have a very, very strange problem with my Computer...
When I am in games the computer decides to restart! It does not go in to the desktop or anything, it just restarts... No I don't have the sasser virus before you ask .
I have a ASUS A7V8X-X which has AGP 8X and a GeForce 4 Ti which is AGP 4x... Could this be conflicting?
My AMD Athlon XP2500 is normally runs at 59c (Rubbish Heatsink compound), would this be a problem?


Thanks,
Orbb

PS!
My setup is in my sig

I have that kind of problem and personnally think I dont have enough system power. Could be the same with you or some software issue. I doubt the video card would cause a problem.

Well, is not the AGP problem. Bcosz AGP8X is compatible with AGP4x, just the speed slower only.

Get all the software updates possible, and by the way what game(s) does this happen in?

I'm thinking an overheating, power supply problem.

It may be the drivers for something. I remember everytime I started aol my computer would restart, and it ended up being drivers for my wireless internet adaptor. I'd assume it might be your video card drivers or some other conflicting ones. Do you have Windows XP? If so, do you get the error reporting when it boots up?
