So I'm getting these random restarts quite frequently lately and I can't seem to figure out why. I've never had this problem before and something tells me it's a GFX card issue. The problem happens when I alt tab out of WoW, as soon as I let go of tab and it goes to switch to mozilla or ventrillo it just restarts my computer. On rare occasions it happens when I click a link in mozilla or open a new program. But, WoW is almost always running when it happens even if its minimized.
I ran registry mechanic and AVG and though they found a few little things here and there it has not solved my problem.
I used to use Omega Drivers but, it doesn't seem that the owner of the site is keeping up to date anymore.
It never happened when I used his drivers so I suppose I could re download his and use them but, I like to be as up to date as possible and I'm not positive that would fix it.
Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.
I had the same problem with my 7600gt from evga, and I think it might be due to blown capacitors - at least mine has 2 blown out and it restarts like crazy. Check the caps and see if they are leaking out. But honestly I can't say for sure that's the reason, as apparently video cards can run with blown capacitors for quite some time.
