Question Restarting - Please Help!!!!!!!!

I have a AXP 2000+, 256 ram, 10gig hdd, GA 7vm400m MB.
when i play unreal tournament 2004 for a while the computer suddenly restarts. i am running win xp pro
Afterwards windows says it has recovered from a serious error
is this a hardware prob or a software prob and is there any way to fix it.

i would suggest adding more ram especially if you play alot of games

AdAware | Spybot S&D 1.4 | spyware guard & spyware blaster |

If you use IE I suggest using thes two programs IE Hosts & IE-SPYAD
