I'm renewing this topic on here as is now old.
My problem occurs when trying to play games like Freelancer, Rise of Nations and Civilisation IV. I can start to run the game perfectly. However, after a few minutes the game will either crash, turning itself off and returning to the desktop or my computer will completely just reset itself.
I clicked on the microsoft error message window that pops up and that suggested that it was a graphics driver problem. At the moment I have 128MB NVidia GeForce 4 graphics card (integrated on a78x-vm as the sheet says that came with my computer!) I have tried to download from NVidia a different graphics driver. All this achieved, however, was to make the games last a little longer before crashing and resulting in a great deal of slow down in places and certain parts of the graphics (particularly in Freelancer) disappearing. However, during the last discussion, various people thought it might be down to insufficient RAM to run the games. At the moment I have two slots with 256MB pc2700 ddr memory cards in.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
