The head of campus computers took my computer apart and pinpointed the problem to be the GeForce FX 5200 video card. His old card worked fine on the computer and when I came home for the summer, my old computer's Voodoo card also worked fine while I sent the 5200 back to the company for repairs.
Recently I recieved my card back with an update to a GeForce FX 5600 (the software included is Gainward). Directly underneath the card is a little fan that sucks the heat off the card and pushes it through the back of the cpu. Two hours into putting it into my computer when the system rebooted by itself again. In the last two days, it has done it four times for absolutely no reason.
I have updated my drivers for the card with no help. I don't know where I'd have to go in the computer system to get a copy of the BIOS or anything or really give too much information on the system besides:
AMD Athlon 1800+
Windows XP SP2
I am very tempted to just go back to the Voodoo card since it works like a dream, but I can't play my only game with it (Sims 2) and since I'm a multimedia major at school, I figured I might need any high quality graphics that the card may produce for my future classes and sell the card to buy something else.
Any help or recommendations would be appreciated because I am at the end of my rope.
