Default Computer Restarting, need help

Im running vista 64 bit on my desktop computer
i had to reload the operating system and ever since, every 30 minutes it shuts down, blue screens for maybe a second and restarts

i think it has somthing to do with my video driver but im not sure. everytime i try to go to the asus driver site i cant find the driver. i have a asus en9600/htdi/512/a video card

can anyone help me?

please e-mail me at vanlee18@gmail.com

You could start by turning off autorestart and seeing what the BSOD says.

It's under System Properties, Advanced. There is a checkbox that says something along the lines of "automatically restart windows when there is a failure" and you want to uncheck that box.

I don't have a Vista machine in front of me, so I can't be more specific.
