Hi All,

I recently tried to use the 'TV-in' feature of my video card. After setting up the channels and watching for around 10 minutes the system re booted itself. I tried the same thing and once again after about 10 minutes it rebooted again this time freezing on the choose your operating system screen. Any ideas as to what could be causing this ? Im running XP Home SP2 on a HP Pavilion 512MB RAM 80GB hard drive. Graphics card is NVIDIA GE Force FX5200 128MB
Thanks in advance

sounds like bad wiring/loose connection.

-check all of your connections..if your not using gold plated connectors try using those they give a better signal. Also if you have too many high powered devices on a power strip it will cause that power strip to reset itself or shut the devices off. Check if any other devices are also resetting.
