Hi,
I just bought a new PC recently. First time of using the new PC, everything is alright, however when I used the PC for the second time, Problem occurred. The PC will automatically restart when I surfed Internet. After the restart, Window will pop up a message saying that there is a serious error, it is due to my video device driver. I went back to the shop and I had change new graphic card, the problem still persist. I have download latest video device drive (which Microsoft website suggest), the problem still there. I had scan my system to check whether is there any virus or malicious software, there is nothing I can find.
Could anyone tell me what happen to My PC. I am seriously getting tired of it. :blink:

Thanks,
:whistling:

Generally, this is a power issue, if drivers and a bad card have been ruled out. Try this: Boot into your BIOS, find the Hardware Monitor or PC Health Status item, and let us know what it lists for 12v, 5v, and 3.3v there.

This may also be a bad network controller issue, or a Windows side issue.
