I've just completed my new PC and i have some problems when playing 1080 video formats. The playback works for 3-4 minutes and then the system restarts itself. I'm using Windows XP Professional (the one recognizing the 4GB ram) and this happened to me using both KMPlayer and VLC.
The CPU is Intel Core 2 Duo 3GHz, 2x2048 Corsair Dual Channel 1066MHz XMS2 Dominator, and a Gigabyte GeForce 9500GT 512MB DDR2.
I'm running on a dvi-hdmi cable on a samsung t240HD although i don't think this could be the problem.
Could you please tell me what to check in order to identify the problem? Maybe some monitoring software i can use while playing the problematic videos so that I'll see if some parameter goes sky-rocketing at the time?
Thanks in advance for your help and time.
thats bull a more powerful power supply for a crap card like that, it's funny i see post about people with a 7600gt or 8500gt or 9400gt and what always happens get a new power supply, and if people are stupid and buy a $100 power supply for a card like that you have way to much money to burn it's the drivers
