I bought a GeForce 5500 OC 256 MB graphics card 2 weeks ago, I uninstalled all older drivers and then put new card in, installed drivers etc..., I then go to play a game and within minutes of being ingame my computer will reboot itself or give me a BSOD, I updated to the 2 newest versions and got the same error. It's a real pain so if someone could help I'd really appreciate it.

Is the power supply up to the task? Sounds like your new video card is too much for it.

Listen to the Admin dude (cheers great site!) and look at the power rating for your power supply (measured in watts).

Then post back telling us your PC setup - i.e. How many drives, PCI/AGP cards, processor and me may be able to help a bit more.

I don't think it's a power problem this is the page error report takes me to after my computer reboots itself.

I have a A, C and D drive, the new video card is an AGP and I had this problem with my old video card as well it was a Geforce 4 mx 440 64 MB. I've heard there is a problem with Nvidia and ATI cards called infinite Loop something but I'm not very good with computer hardware so I have no idea what that means.
