Built a new pc today and installed windows. When im installing some software, the computer randomly reboots and then when its back in windows it pops up a message saying that it has recovered from a serious error and that my Radeon 9600 pro might be causing the system to be unstable. Now I am not sure if it is the video card or the memory. I have not even plugged my USB wireless adapter or installed it to download memtest and check if it is the memory. The ASUS probe thing tells me the processor, mobo etc temps, fan speeds, volts etc etc. I am kinda sure its not the power supply, dont know about the memory or the video card. Someone please help!!!

The error message you are getting is telling you that your video card is the cause of the problem. Make sure you have the latest drivers, you can download them from the manufacturers' website.

Yah I finally fixed it. The new drivers did not help, the comp kept crashing. It was the old drivers that fixed it. Especially the catalyst version 3.9, now it works like a dream with no errors, no random freezing or rebooting of the comp. And I can play 3d intensive games without a problem. Thanks anyways.
