In solution 2 where it has the hardware acceleration, try to increase it a bit to see if it affects the screen resolution, if so, keep adjusting it upwards until the rebooting starts

Then adjust it to the highest setting it will run at without the reboots

Keith,

I have to be honest. I just realized that I was adjusting screen resolution and not hardware accelaration. I just adjusted it.

Sorry for being so stupid. I'll report back asap.

Does the listing for the video card expand on S3G

Look at the bottom three here to see if yours is listed

I uninstalled Yahoo. You sounded like it may have been a mistake to have.

If you can run it without for a couple of days, if the PC runs properly, install Yahoo, if it crashes, there's the problem
