computer failure. . .
Just got done putting together a new computer, and having some weird issues with it. I installed all the drivers to all my devices, and when I go to control panel and hardware there is no conflicts showing. My graphics card requires two power plugs hooked up to it, and i only got one. So heres whats been happening- When i play FFXI, when there is a big flash on the screen or something with a lot of graphics loaded, my computer freezes. About 10 seconds later the computer automatically restarts. Starting up farcry, my computer doesnt freeze but just restarts on its own. And sometimes when im not even doing anything my computer will just restart, it wont even shutdown first. So i was wondering if that has anything to do with my graphics card not fully hooked up? I also have graphic errors when i play far cry, like all the grown is one big black color instead of having textures. Please help me out if you have any ideas!
