Default Re: Computer resetting itself...

If your computer keeps resetting like that, especially when playing games, it usually indicates a failing PSU. It seems strange because the card you are using doesn't consume a lot of power so it could be like k-pow suggested that the PSU is simply dieing on you.

When you say resets itself I have to think it's rebooting.
Have you checked the system logs? To get there do this>>>
start button in tray
control panel
performance and maintaince
adminastrative tools
event viewer
Now either application or system is going to have red x's where there is a problem that would cause a system error. Double click on any of those and see what it has to tell you.

There is a setting to stop the system from rebooting to let you see the error as in BSOD. But if it's the power supply or a device failing I doubt if you would get blue screened. Check the logs first.
