Hi,

I have the folowing system:

Intel quad 9450
Rampage formula mother board
4gb DDR
Sapphire HD 4870 512MB video card

My problem is that when i enter games my computer just restarts, i think ( know ) that it is my video card, but what other solutions can i try before replaceing it ( no money atm :D  )
And another thing, my computer sometimes just wont start, i have to take out the RAM and put it back in, in order to start, why is that?

Many thanks.

try running hardware monitor.......id be willing to bet that the only thin re-seating your ram is doing is giving your components more time to cool down.....

hardware monitor is a free program from cpuid.......google it......run it.......report back


good luck

thanks
