I just bought a new computer: Pentium 4 2.8 GHz, 1Gb RAM, video card RADEON X300 SE (0x5B60) 256 MB

Well the problem is this:

I just play Conquer2.0 (a online game) and all its good, no lag, all seems good. But then my computer restart or turn off. I think its the videocard i got, or i need update the driver or stuff.

Before in my old computer Pentium 3 i never had this problem playing this game. Tell me what can i do, or how to upgrade the videocard, it sucks, im a noob about computer so i need help.

The newest drivers can be found at ATI's website under "Drivers & Software". Your drivers are over a year old, I believe we are up to 6.6 in terms of ATI drivers, you are at 6.14 :blink: Try updating that and then:

Do you know how hot it is in the computer?How many fans do you have? This may be caused by your computer overheating. I know that if the computer gets to a certain temperature above the normal threshold of the computer, it will shut itself off so it doesn't slowly melt :whistling:

Also, Storm. He gave us the make and model: RADEON X300 SE is enough to find the drivers.
