    More information concerning the system/OS would be extremely helpful here. Also the video card that you replaced. If it was a non-nVidia based board, then you need to completely remove the old driver set before installing the GeForce boards.

    Overheating he? hum, very possible..and theres a overheating protection that shutdown my pc?? I notice it was a little hot in my open closet. here's some more specs,

    MB: Asus kv77 or something, dont remember the exact name
    AthlonXP 1600+
    768 mb SDRAM
    Asus GFX 5600 128m (before: asus Geforce3 ti 4200)
    40g & 60 Western Digital HD's
    WinXP pro Serv. pack 3

    I did try some other test yesterday: same thing... I did remove the drivers from my gf3, but do you guys think that re-installing a brand new XP can solve the problem? Tanx a lot for the replys dudes, appreciated....:cheers:

    haven't you heard of the overheating issues in the gfx 5200-5800 cards?. it could be that. you should've waited for the 5900:)
