    so any time i boot up/restart my computer, it gets to windows, loads all my icons and everything and freezes and sits there for about 10 seconds, and reboots again. this happens about 2-5 times every time i boot up/restart my computer until it boots up all the way to the point where i can use it. it gives me the error message that i attached. also, when i try to run games, the screen goes black like its going to run the game, and my computer restarts. then we go through that first little process again. my computer is blaming it all on my fx 5600 that has the lastest drivers, and its been acting up like this through about 3 driver updates. so is it time for a new video card or is there a fix for this?? thanks folks

    ok so it didnt insert my screen shot, but the error message says

    "Computer restarted after an unexpected shutdown.
    Microsoft Windows detected a possible device failure.


    The driver for the display device was unable to complete a drawing
    operation. Please check with the device manufacturer for a driver
    update.

    Please tell Microsoft about this problem.
    The display driver for NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 seems to be
    responsible for the system instability

    then theres the option to either send the error report, or not to send it...you all know what im talking about...sadly.

    Did it ever work right and this is something new? Make sure that you have the latest mb drivers and DirectX loaded too. Any bios updates for the mb or vid card that address this?

    its been happening for probably a month now. it worked fine for about 9 months. as soon as it started happening i got new drivers for the video card and it didnt fix anything, so i got new drivers for the mb, and that didnt do anything either, so i dunno what to do.

    How are you changing your drivers? It may be worth downloading Driver Cleaner http://www.driverheaven.net/cleaner/ and following the info in the "read me" file. If you had a corrupted driver at some point then it is possible that different drivers are not able to correct existing problems due to an improperly modified registry or cab setting. Driver Cleaner seems to help if instructions are followed properly.
