Could a 7900GT cause restarts?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My friends rig restarts any time he tries to play EVE or UT3 or DMC4. the game locks and his computer restarts at his post screen.

ive tried re-installing drivers for EVERYTHING.

His Rig -
Pentium D 940
1gb of Corsair XMS2
ASUS P5idontremember
BFG 7900GT (256mb)
160Gb HDD
450w PSU
WinXP Home
Everything is dead stock, no OC's on anything ever.

Ive run tests on his CPU and the 7900GT, both are running perfectly except in those instances. (7900GT is at least 2 hours ATI Tool stable. PD is 24 hour Prime stable)

The thought its the graphics card crossed my mind when i remembered people couldnt even get them to RUN under windows vista. And a few had bad problems under XP. What do you guys think?

If you allow it to, yes.

With only 1gb of ram, some of those games require a bit more.
