    windows xp professional with service pack 1
    antec true ps 430
    abit ic7-g with latest chipset driver
    all in wonder 9800 pro with 3.9 driver. current ver.
    western digital raptor 360wd hd.
    direct 9.ob
    latest bios updated at default setting.

    any help will do...thanks

    I say its probably the RAM.
    When an error occurs it automatically resets the computer, used to have this problem with my old computer.
